Amazing before and after projects -- link up your own!

Hello hello! The before and after party has returned again! I was thrilled with the response from you all about bringing it back a couple months ago. I have decided it will most likely be an every other month thing, but I may change my mind. We'll see!

It was SO fun looking through your projects again. I've missed seeing them all! I'm excited to share these talented bloggers with you more often again.

Let's kick this off, and then you can join in at the bottom of the post with your own project.

Nancy's bright and pretty laundry room is SO good:

But you really have to see the before to get the FULL effect. What a transformation!

I loved this pretty two-toned kitchen makeover by Jane and Sonja:

The colors remind me of my gray and white kitchen transformation in our old house!

This DIY coffered ceiling is SO good and I have no doubt it was a lot of work -- but it wasn't as difficult as I thought something like this would be:

Morgan's husband knocked this out of the park! They covered a popcorn ceiling so this would be a great option if you have them.

Jennifer's DIY picture ledges are even easier than mine -- hers just use two pieces of wood and mine use three:

I especial love how they are tucked into the end of the hallway -- what a great use of this space.

Her boy's woodland room is one of the sweetest I've seen! Just look at this bed!:

Angela did such a great job -- what a labor of love.

My friend Beth did such a lovely job on their master bedroom -- can you believe that is wall paper and not molding behind the bed?
Wallpaper that looks like molding

I love how she worked those cabinets to look like custom pieces too. 

Stacy's IKEA master closet redo has my wheels turning...I want to tackle our closets next year:

Literally every single thing has a spot -- dreamy!

And finally, Beth's pretty mud room made me smile. How can it not?:

I know we're in the season of warm colors but this made me so happy. What a sweet space!

OK, if you'd like to be considered for next month's round up, be sure to include a link to TDC in your post. Or you can copy and paste this code for the button (I really need to update this thing!):

Now let's see what you've been up to! I wouldn't be mad if some Christmas projects were thrown in. ;) Have fun!


  1. Love these posts - do you have the link for Beth's mudroom? Thank you!

  2. Sarah, thank you so much for the feature! Such an honor to be included! I've found so many great blogs when you've done this in the past and can't wait to check out the others :-)

  3. I forgot that you used to do these posts. I really used to like them and I'm so glad that you are bringing them back!
