February Before and After Party!

Hey hey! It’s time for another Before and After Partay! I can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to!

I mentioned earlier this year that instead of posting my own projects every month, I’ll be sharing some of the knock-your-socks-off projects linked up from the month before.

And I’ve got some stellar projects to share from the January party to kick this off!

Gail blew me away with this one – she took an old desk she had in the basement for years and turned it into a beautiful chest of drawers:

desk turned chest of drawers
Desk turned chest
My Repurposed Life

Can you even believe that? I love how her brain comes up with stuff like this. :)

Tonya’s board and batten project made a HUGE impact in her living room:

Board & Batten Gallery Wall

Love of Family and Home

Love the white against that pretty blue – and the gallery wall is perfection! Awesome Tonya!

I saw Anna’s glittery heels post a few weeks ago and am so glad she linked it up! She used spray paint to change them up:

DIY glittered heels
Take the Side Street

Aren’t they awesome?! She had some issues with the Krylon glitter spray paint (I’ve noticed the same problems), but the end result was SO worth it!

Mallory and Savannah took a thrift store headboard and gave it an beautiful redo for Savannah’s daughter:

Classy Clutter

Adorable! They show every step of the process too – very easy to follow!

Leah made over a basic Hemnes dresser into a gorgeous custom piece:

California Callahans

Wowza! I absolutely LOVE it! Just beautiful.

Some great inspiration, eh? I thought so. :)

I’m looking forward to highlighting more of your projects every month! If you’d like to be considered, please link back to this party post or the blog! (I didn’t worry about that for this month.)

It’s time to see what else you’ve been up to! Link it up folks!
