My Top 2010 Before and Afters

Most recent pic of my kitchen--hubs recently put up the pendant. Keep going for the Before.....
My Kitchen

After is "before" the final backsplash..see below

In the bottom 2 photos you can see the final backsplash
More kitchen photos because I lurrrve my kitchen--we removed that peninsula to create the island.
This is before we completed backsplash and took down the vertical blinds...

I sooo love the island-so much storage beneath!

Recently finished my backsplash- I am in love! Posted about here

Some Chairs

I redid these twice--I like the final fabric better!

Had this one professionally recovered

Black makes a Huge difference!

My Powder Room: 

Hideous Orange Oak

Poor thing-sat in garage for YEARS

My Dining Room

There are more, but this blogging business is crazy hard! Its nearly impossible for me to locate some of the pics on my computer, and editing the photos (as you can see my photos are awful!) is so difficult for me! Hope you can relate...happy "aftering"!! I still have so much more to do in 2011.

Make it a Great Day!


  1. Wow! You have had a busy year! All your transformations look great. Thanks for your kind comment on my year. I love your chair redos also. Looking forward to seeing what you have in store for 2011!

  2. Hi Ann-

    Love seeing all of your before and afters. You have been very busy. I have a bathroom with the gold fixtures like you - actually two of them that I need to replace. Yours looks great and are inspiring me to get mine updated.

    Thanks for the nice comment. I have to smile that you like my photos. I have been using a Nikon point and shoot and just got a new camera. I have learned a lot about making my photos better since I began blogging. Do you use any photo editing on yours? I use Photoshop Elements, but I know alot of bloggers like Picnik and Picasa that are free. I still am learning.
    I hope you have a great weekend. It is snowing here.
    My best- Diane

  3. Thank you for stopping by my blog. I'm a new follower! I love your kitchen redo. You have got serious guts! I am looking at our dated kitchen and get hives just THINKING about all that needs to be done. Kudos to you! I invite you to follow my blog... I'm a newbie and my followers of 6 are a bit lonely. We just moved into our home so I promise I will have more to show this year. :)

  4. Love your before-and-after round up! Fantastic job on all of your projects!
