Best of 2013 ~ Before & Afters

Hello, hello! Have you been digging out of the holiday aftermath like us? As much as I loved our Christmas decor this year, I couldn’t take it down fast enough! I used our organization method from last year, and everything packed away pretty quickly. All that remains is disassembling the tree, which is the Mister’s job….so it’s likely to be a Valentine tree. Maybe I’ll drag it to the garage and leave it in his parking spot…think he’ll get the hint?
Today we’re back for another fun round-up. This time, it’s the most popular Before
and After projects from 2013. Here they are in chronological order, click the links for the full post!

 Hi Sugarplum | Matchstick Blinds

Hi Sugarplum | Spruced Up Front Porch
Hi Sugarplum | Pink Walls & Red Ceiling Dining Room
Hi Sugarplum | Breakfast Room West Elm drapes
Hi Sugarplum | Hall Nook Makeover
Hi Sugarplum | Happy Organized Garage
No wonder I’m enjoying this break so much! But I’m excited for all
the projects we have planned for next year, and can’t wait to share them
with you. Until then, check out the Project Gallery, House Tour and Popular Projects pages for more happenings around here.

  5. Your roundups make me realize I didn't do shite for 2013. Also? I'm hiring you to do stuff for me in 2014. Will pay you in TJ's cookie butter.
    Toootally using your tree in the Mr's parking spot technique. I could see R parking over it & going "hey who's tree is that?"
