Before and After


Oh I love a good before and after, don't you? I am a sucker for just about any makeover: people, homes, makeup, clothes...I'm there. So when BooMama wrote about her ideas to fix up some areas of her house, I immediately thought of a few (dozen) areas I could work on. Well, I had high goals but, here's what I accomplished.

Goal #1: Power wash my front porch, buy new welcome mat, change door decoration. Please notice the lovely shade of green on the ground. (Now washed away!) I made that wreath too!

Goal #2: Clean and organize my garage. I hate garages and garage-y stuff. I hate lawn care and any kind of outdoor work. Too bad-I'm a single girl and have to do it! Usually I just do everything as quickly as possible and don't spend an extra second in the garage that I don't have to. But finally, I got tired of seeing piles of junk and I tackled it. Its not too dramatic but it is a lot nicer to come home to!

Thanks to BooMama for inspiring me! Now, she'll just have to do another one of these in a couple of months to get me to do my next jobs!


  1. I'm inspired too.(Great job)
    Tomorrow....the closet.

  2. Beautiful job. Blessings to you!

  3. I am such a "change the door decoration" person too! I love your wreath with the fall colors (oh, how I love fall!)...

    Here's ANOTHER thing to add to my to-do list this weekend. This Before and After party has been so fun--but my list keeps growing!

  4. Inspiring work!
    I have many of those jobs to take on around my house, too!
    Your wreath looks great. I still have summer flowers on my front door.
