Welcome to My Five Favorites today!  Pam from Simple Details, Lisa from Shine Your Light, Kris from Driven by Decor and I are all so excited to share our five favorite before and after projects with you this month.

We're welcoming Shelley at Crazy Wonderful as our guest today, and I think she must be pretty humble because she should have named her blog Crazy Talented!  Case in point, that stunning black botanical wall (psst... they're DIY!!) in her gorgeous dining room.

I'm anxious to see what she's sharing with us today for her favorite B&As too, so join me and be sure to stop by, say hello, and take a peek!

One of our biggest before and after projects has been the Patio makeover that we started two summers ago.  We removed the pergola and added a solid roof in it's place, extended the existing roof and floor area, and added a fireplace. The after truly feels like we've added a whole new living area to our home, and we're using it every chance we get!  Check out the reveal post to see a closer look of all the details we changed as well as links to all of the projects along the way.

I'm probably teetering on the verge of y'all being tired of seeing the Powder Bath makeover, but it's probably the most dramatic before and after in my house!

It's tempting to only include big, dramatic, full room makeovers in my favorites today, but small projects that don't take much time can be just as satisfying!  These sad thrifted lamps are still one of my all time favorite B&A projects- all it took was some paint, new shades, and a little bit of time.

And guess what?? Surprise, after 4 years they just got another makeover last they're pretty in pink!

Of course, a good furniture trash to treasure transformation is always a winner in my book.  These nightstands are one of my favorite before and afters, because I figured out a simple way to change the dated look of the top drawer into a classic, timeless style.

These Vintage Wingback Chairs took years for me to actually get them from the before to the after, but it was worth all of the effort! Love them flanking my dining room table.

Goodness, once I started digging through the archives, I couldn't stop at 5 today!  Here's a few more I'll just give you the photos of, click the link below the photo if you want to see project details.  More of my favorites!

Lastly, I've got one big before and after bonus for you today.  A few months ago we reached 10 years of living in this home (unbelievable!).  If you missed it, I did a big post on where we started, progress, where were are now, and how my style has changed through the years.  It's full of lots of good before and after photos!

Do you have a favorite before and after project from your home?  I'd love to know what it is!  Be sure to head over to check out these before and after transformations, too.
