Under the Table and Dreaming

Stephanie at Under the Table and Dreaming is a DIY blogger full of creative ideas. I was only going to share her kitchen, but I can't help showing off more. She deserves to show it all off. I love her style and these 3 before/afters are beautiful. My favorite projects include a beautiful Thanksgiving table, an amazing bathroom transformation and a gorgeous kitchen makeover that has me so jealous. Here you go:

Dining room before with seller's furniture...

Dining room after...with some beautiful holiday inspiration!

She made this beautiful table runner! I LOVE it.

and these Pottery Barn inspired centerpieces! Aren't these beautiful too?

Everyone Said Don't Do It, But I Painted Wallpaper Anyway ~ Our Powder Room
(Click the link above to get all of the details! Her bravery paid off!)
I love the subtle gray stripes and it's motivation to get busy on finishing my bathroom this long holiday weekend! (Thanks Stephanie!)

Powder room before:

Powder room after - wow!

We used the same shade for both stripes, one in a flat finish and the other in satin. The color is called Gentle Rain.

The heart of Stephanie's home, her kitchen:

Since I won't be enjoying a kitchen makeover any time too soon, I'll just live my dream under Stephanie's table.
ere are some pictures taken during one of walk-throughs prior to buying the house...

Just a few side by sides...

Good Morning Roeshel. I love the Dining Room! I wish I could do the Tablescape thing, but with little girls in the house, that would be too tempting for them. Ohh well, I will just live through Stephanie like you are with her Kitchen! BTW, I LOVE the silver accents in the bathroom. Such Simple Elegance. Have a great day!
