Some of My Favorite Before & Afters

Posted by Laura

I'm a sucker for before and after photos - not [always] the process, just the photos. I wanted to share with you some of my favorite before and after photos from the world wide web that I've bookmarked, pinned,  and printed over the years. These photos always make me giddy, no matter how many times I look at them.

First up, a beauty of a lamp from 33 Shades of Green. The weird thing is, is that my own lamp project looks incredibly similar to this one. It must have been one of those thing buried deep in my subconscious because I totally felt like I came up with my lamp redo on my own. Ha!

The next two b&a's are from the Petersiks over at Young House Love. They have completely changed my view of the standard 1950s ranch. The first set of pictures show their master bathroom. I love the colors but most of all I love what they did with the awkward window-above-sink situation. More details here.

Here is the Petersiks' living room, and perhaps the most striking living room makeover in the history of living room makeovers (more photos of their first house here).

The next before and after always makes me house-envy. This is a master bedroom redo from Layla at The Lettered Cottage. I love the mirrors and hardware on the doors. I love the wall. I love the floors. I love the airiness. More details here.

And finally, the dresser from Salvage Savvy that never ceases to amaze me. The total cost of this dresser [after the redo] was $20! More details here.
