Before & After

No craft projects to show or at least none that are finished so I thought I would share some before and after pictures from the renovations of my condo over the last year or so. Here they are:

The Kitchen BEFORE & AFTER:
 The countertops stayed but I painted the cabinets white to lighten things up a bit, added new stainless 'look' appliances, added a floating island, and painted the walls a fresh green.

The living room:
In addition to pulling up the dirty carpet and replacing with laminate flooring, I painted all the trim white, replaced the windows, and gave the walls a fresh coat of paint.

Totally outdated bathroom BEFORE & AFTER:
The bathroom was pretty much gutted...everything was replaced with new fixtures.  The walls were painted a light gray/blue and the floor got budget-friendly press and stick tile!

My bedroom BEFORE (notice the awesome orange shag)
 Bedroom AFTER (new floors, paint, trim, etc.)


  1. Nice job! Lots of painting and pulling up carpet but it was well worth it! Found you on YHL. I really need to tackle my bathrooms! Thanks for the great before and afters!

    1. You can do it, Tania (tackle your bathrooms, that is)! Hard work but well worth it!

  2. I was searching for paint colors for my bathroom and came across your blog. I really like the color you painted your bathroom. Can you tell me the name of the color?

    1. Hi Mandy-

      I believe I used Light French Gray by Behr in the bathroom! Good luck!
