Better after is a showcase of my favorite part of any design project or makeover: The before and afters! It's always better after!

I love seeing transformations of thrift store treasures or overlooked items into beautiful and...

Of all the DIY projects you've done, which was your favorite?

What's your advice for moms who want to decorate their home on a budget?

Where do you find inspiration for keeping your home stylish?

Is there a bed (or a whole room concept) that your big kid (ages 5-10) would drool over? Please share a link to a picture if you have one.

These are a few boy bedroom makeovers that are my absolute favorites. I love the bold stripes in the first room, they were meant to represent the boy's favorite baseball team without becoming a "BASEBALL THEMED!!!" room. I love how the second bedroom makeover replaced the primary-color walls with orange and black. It sounds Halloween-y, but it's actually very cool and grown up, yet still playful and fun. And the third room is a pirate themed room that can absolutely not be beat. One of the best I've ever seen.
