Stunning DIYs and room makeovers -- link up yours!

It's baaaaack! I know I said I was going to bring back the before and after link up...and then I didn't. The holidays hit and last month was a doozy so it's happening now. And I'm excited to see what you've been up to!

If you're new to this shindig, it's is a great way for bloggers to share their latest projects, big and small. I only ask that a before photo is included, because duh...that's the fun part. If you're not a blogger it's just a great way to find tons of inspiration. You can check out all of the links at the bottom of the last link up here.

This will most likely be every other month but we'll see how it goes, you know? As always, I like to share some of my favorite projects that were linked up on the previous linky, so I'll show you those first!

First up...Cristina hit it out of the park again! This bathroom makeover at Remodela Casa is beautiful!:

Check out the storage cubbies she created by building into the wall on the right!

This china cabinet transformation is one of the best furniture makeovers with paint I've ever seen:

Super smooth black paint finish on furniture

LOVE that smooth finish and the unique fabric on the back! 

This fresh farmhouse laundry makeover is giving me ideas for our laundry:

The table legs and butcher block are such pretty details!

If you have a countertop that is in good shape, you can update your counters without spending a ton using this tutorial:

What a brilliant way to get the marble look!

I LOVED this simple update that could be used anywhere in the house. Katie gave her walls the look of wallpaper without hanging the real thing:
Adding design to walls without wallpaper

Isn't that so pretty? I'm trying to think of where I could add it. 

This farmhouse bathroom makeover is a beautiful example that it doesn't take a fortune to transform a room into a beautiful space:
Easy changes in bathroom that don't cost a fortune
Simple updates make a big difference and won't break the bank!

I loved this laundry room makeover as well -- can you believe that's not tile? Nope, it's peel and stick flooring!:

That blue door is so sweet! You know how I love painted doors.

I thought this was brilliant -- have you considered transforming a long closet into a powder room? Kristi did just that!:

And it is the prettiest tiny bathroom I've ever seen! You must check this one out.

And finally, last but not least -- my friend Jenny transformed another kitchen into a beauty with the power of paint:

And if you're looking for something other than black or white, this pretty taupey/grey color is lovely!

Now let's see what you've been up to lately! Spring projects are welcome -- because I need to have hope that it will arrive! :)
