Our first before and after pictures

Everyone keeps asking for before and after pictures. The only problem with that is until this weekend we didn't have a single room that was 100% finished, therefor no after pictures. The craft room (nursery) is the first room in our house that is complete. When you see the pictures, you will see why it is the first room that is done...there isn't much that goes in there. I just wanted floor space so I can sprawl my projects all over the ground. The only thing we have left to do in this room is put the switch plates back on. I should have waited a couple of hours to take these pictures. The light in this room is so gorgeous around 8:30-9:30, I have too much to do though. So here it is ladies and gentleman, our first before and after shots of our home:

BEFORE:

AFTER:

We changed the paint color from a boring tan to a gentle creamy white, arranged furniture, decorated a bit and voila!

I made these huge hanging flowers out of tissue paper. They were cheap to make and I LOVE them.



It's not much but it is the perfect work space for me. I love how clean and bright this room is. Hopefully we will have two more rooms completely finished this week and I'll have some more after pictures to share soon.

Oh I love it! You are quite the decorator! I will have to steal some of your ideas when we start decorating our house (when we get a house....) :)
