Before and Afters are Fun!

I was thinking about how much I love a good before and after.They are sooo instantly gratifying.You can quickly see the disastrous beginning and the divine end result! I want to get better at taking good before/after shots at each clients house, because even if it is a LONG and tiring process to get from start to finish...it is so nice to come back later and see what a huge difference the before is from the after.

Here are a couple of quick snapshots I took of a bathroom I remodeled this summer...
BEFORE...
sweet wall paper, brass/plastic fixtures and saloon doors to the pottie...
and AFTER...
My two favorite things on this project were the awesome HOTSOAK tub, and the glass/travertine mosaic accents in the tub surround...
This sweetie pie client wanted to warm up her kitchen without redoing the cabinets or counters.
BEFORE...

 so we installed this 5 inch, hand scraped wood flooring.
It really made this builder grade space feel much more inviting...
AFTER... (those floor mats were not my idea, just fyi ; )
And here is a Before/After from our casa:
When we bought the house, there was an entertainment center sitting right in front of this lovely insulation filled hole in the wall. This hole used to be a window, until the garage was added on, and this was the solution that the previous home owners came up with...hmmmm niiice.
I wanted a focal point for this wall so Lucas and i came up with this simple idea to cover up the dirty secret...I call it my dining room mantle. ; )
I will definitely start taking before and after shots on all my projects. I tend to just not think about it or just don't take the time to do it. But, it is definitely worth it to have something to look back on, so from now on I'm gonna make it happen. ; )
Hope you all have a Wonderful Thursday!!! Peace Out, Girl Scout.
