April Before and After Party!

Hello hello! I am back among the computer living! WHOO! My hubby was able to get my computer to work some last week, but then it went completely kaput. My BFF’s husband was able to shine ‘er up this weekend and it’s working awesome now!

I’m so relieved. :) Not having a computer brings on the shakes, I tell you what.

It’s time for the APRIL Before and After Party! First of all, can I get a what what? When the heck did April happen?

Before we get going with your links, I like to show off a few of the amazing projects from last month.

There were a couple bathroom redos I just had to share – first up was Michelle’s powder room:

   

Look carefully – they only changed a few things! The mirror, the sconces and a newly painted ceiling. Sometimes it is very much the little things that make a BIG difference!

I was absolutely swooning over Beth’s powder room redo – it is stunning!:

This dramatic redo was largely courtesy of wallpaper – both the beautiful blue design on top, and the beadboard wallpaper on the bottom. Fantastic!

I am in love with Shelley’s new big girl room for her cutie:

Isn’t that tufted headboard amazing? It’s super thick – I love it. Go here to find out more about this sweet space!

Jaime gives a bunch of details on her top to bottom kitchen redo in this post:

 

They took down a wall to open up the space and it’s so bright and beautiful! Be sure to check out their fun mudroom solution as well!

Yes Virginia (or Squeezie), you can paint laminate. Jessica shows her AWESOME before and after here:

    

Wowza! Some good primer, a little (OK, a lot of) patience, and talk about a transformation! It looks like the original hardware is still on there – and it looks SO good now!

**If you’d like to pin these awesome projects, I ask you go to the source and pin from there!

OK peeps, it’s time to see what you’ve been up to this month! I can’t wait to check them out!

As always, if you’d like to be considered for next month’s highlights, please link to this post in yours. I think I finally have code to grab…faint. I can’t believe it.

  9. For some reason the picture isn't showing up of my link ;-( I am sure it is because I of course have the longest title of all the links...I believe Linky is punishing me... but I just had to include the word whimsical...

    Glad your computer is back from the dead ;-)
