Kicking off summer with beautiful before and afters!

June 05, 2017

Well hello! I'm back sharing some beautiful projects from around blogland! 

Stacy's built in bar area is SO cool! I just love it -- that mirrored tile might be too much for a bigger space but here it's perfection:

And you have to see where she got her herringbone wood countertop -- I had no idea this was there! I'm picking it up for's gorgeous. 

Jennifer's house is so full of color and so put together. They have been in their home for ten years and she shared the before and afters of each space (you KNOW I love those posts!). Her breakfast nook has always been one of my favorites:

I love those brick floors!

Liz's attic renovation really struck me -- the beams are amazing. And that exposed brick! I just love spaces like this:

I have to laugh because I found this photo last night -- and then had a dream where we had an attic that I had just discovered (love how that happens in my dreams) and it was AMAZING with tons of exposed brick. Problem was there were about 15 people living up there that we didn't know about and we couldn't get them to leave. 😂 So weird!! Why do good decor dreams have to be ruined by stress? ;) 

April made this concrete dining table for friends and WOW, it is a stunner: 

I love the mix of the rustic wood with the modern design and concrete. She includes step-by-step instructions for this build.

Daune's front porch dressed up for summer had me drooling...I mean, just look at it!:
Love the blue shutters, the pretty lights and all the plants in rustic containers. That door! Check out the rest of her pretty porch at the link.

I'm a sucker for a crisp white mudroom and Melissa's new mudroom is no different:

All that storage, AND penny tile? Love it.

  3. Thank you so much for including my Bar Project in your roundup! I always feel so validated in my choices when you decide to pick my projects! And yes, the chevron wood countertop is AMAZING! It was definitely the catalyst! Thanks again!

  4. Sarah, What a fun thrill it was for me to see the attic before and after in our 100 year old house featured here today! Thank you so much! :) I have great dreams where I discover rooms that I never knew were in my house those dreams... but funny about yours with the extra people ;) Liz

  5. I thought I was the only one that had those kind of dreams. They always make me want to add little hidden rooms to my house. I always look forward to your before and after link parties. So much inspiration and motivation to get me moving on to my next project!
