If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right…

When I get ready to start a project, I usually do a lot of research on it. I look through magazines and on the web. The best thing about starting a project, is anticipating how it will turn out. I have always enjoyed opening a magazine to find the before and after pictures of a project. I have seen hundreds of before and after pictures and I love it. Doesn’t matter if it’s kitchen, bath, paint or even beauty makeovers. I love to see the changes that can be made.

From all that research, I have learned it’s always a good idea to take before and after pictures of your own projects. That way you can see, side by side, the transformation. I have bored entertained my family and friends over the years with my numerous before and after pictures. And now that we’re getting to know one another, I’ll share some with you.


Here are three of my best projects:

Here are a few projects that I didn’t actually start, but had a hand in making perfect.

I know, I crack me up, too. Now get back to work.


  1. I'm looking up the # to Jenny Craig right now!!!
