Hey hey!! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! We were so busy I didn’t have much project time but I did make some progress on a big one I hope to share with you tomorrow. And I’m starting on the kitchen island this week – I can’t wait!!

It’s time for the February before and after link up – and as always I’m sharing a few of my favorite projects from last month. Seriously, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again -- blogs are the best thing ever! So many talented people and so much inspiration out there.

April shared her post-holiday home and it is just so pretty:

striped curtains

So soothing and I love the neutral colors this time of year. You need to go check it out!

Jennifer turned an awkward storage closet into a multi-purpose room:

under the stairs mud room

It’s a mud room, a storage room, a pantry – and it looks so good! Beadboard makes just about any space feel fresh and clean.

I LOVED this project Heather shared – she used a bunch of “leftovers” to redo her bathroom:

dark gray cabinets bathroom

I love that she used extra paint and rummaged around the house to decorate a room she wasn’t happy with. It turned out so well!

Ronda hit it out of the park again – you won’t believe how this dresser started:

DIY mirror front nightstand

Those aren’t mirrors by the way – you have to visit her site to see what she used. Brilliant!

Angela shared her incredibly easy baby gate project that is WAY cuter than the ones we used to have:

And actually this one is probably less expensive than one from the store too!

I love love love the “runner” Suzanne painted on her steps:

And to round this one up I had to share one of Sarah’s cute spaces:

simple laundry room makeover

I love her style and her review comparing her home then and now really showcases her talent!

OK, it’s time to see what you’ve been up to lately! If you’d like to be considered for next month’s round up, add this button to your post or just a link to TDC:
