Beautiful before and after projects

Hello my friends and welcome to September! One of the best months of the year in my humble opinion! 

Many of you have asked about the before and after link up that I used to host -- I was surprised at how many of you missed it! Life got busy last year with our move and they happened less and less. But I'm going to make an effort to bring it back! 

I really do miss connecting with other bloggers and sharing their projects with you all. So to kick it off again, I gathered some of my favorites from the last year of the link up. You may recognize some of these! 

Tricia's window seat/bed is one of my favorite projects ever, especially with that wood wall: 

Jennifer always uses color so well and I loved this daring powder room makeover

That door...😍 Love how she brought all of this together! 

Melanie's two-toned dining room shows the beauty of simpler design -- this is so elegant: 

That wall color is so calming and that light fixture is perfection in there!

Sharon's mud room makeover was another favorite: 

It looks like she has stopped blogging as well (so sad!). I just loved her home and her design choices! (Her blog was Sharon Joyce Design.) 

Pam's DIY vent hood makeover is one of the best transformations I've seen!:

You really have to see the before to realize the transformation. Such a great idea. 

Jenna's serene powder room is another one I always go back to because of the simplicity: 

That floor is beautiful!

This eclectic kitchen makeover of Kristen's is another one that just demands you check out the before...what a difference!: 

You know how much I love that tile!!

And finally, I really loved this built in bar project that Stacy did: 

I still want to use that gorgeous wood countertop somewhere in our home! So lovely.

  5. It’s so sad so many bloggers are just posting to Instagram. It’s truly a lost art. I check on so many blogs and weeks go by without a new post. Certainly their choice, but I usually see them posting on other sites with links to products. Thank you for continuing to share how you achieve the look of home. Thrifty Decor Chick is the first blog I read and continues to be a favorite.

  6. So glad you brought this back! It's so fun to see what others are posting!

  7. Thank you for bringing this wonderful party back and looking forward to join it each week.
    Have a lovely week dear.

  8. YAY! I missed it too! I have so many projects to add! Here's the link to the built in bar: https://www.stacyssavings.com/diy-built-in-bar-reveal/

    We're planning on using that countertop again in our pantry remodel next year!!
