The Better After blog is an insane addiction I have.
I drool over the jaw-dropping transformations...

I submitted 2 before and after shots of my blah military apartment.
The transformations I submitted cost me little to no money and were done with things that I made or had sitting in storage containers...
It's amazing what you can do with what you already have! 

When I sent the e-mail, I was almost positive that I would get one back saying, "Love what you've done, but not enough drama..." because the before and afters that are featured on this blog are ridiculously fabulous.
Mine could pass for under-whelming.
But I am so gracious that she decided to include me among the ranks of some serious do-it-yourself-ers..

So I say, check out her blog.
It has sparked some ideas for future projects, wherever we end up next.
Every week I gush over the pictures and I think you should too!!


  1. Simple but effective! Great job!

  2. You put quite a polish on your apartment; it is amazing how attractive you made it for little to nothing money wise. I especially like the sheers defining the dining table. Found you thru BetterAfter (it IS a great blog isn't it?) :) Pam @ Sallygoodin

  3. Congrats!!!! And thanks for sharing, I'd never heard of that blog but it is great!
