Welcome to Better After!

This site is inspired by you! 
It started as an idea file, a collection of all the projects and makeovers that I adore. I’m constantly amazed at how a little spray paint and love can transform even the freakiest of thrift store treasures.
Maybe it’s my ADHD acting up, but I’ve found that I seem to watch most design and makeover (and even weight loss!) shows with my finger on the trigger. That is, fast forwarding to the end. The payoff. The BIG REVEAL.
The before and after. That’s my favorite part.
It’s always better after! I just love seeing the transformations and what people can conceive and create. Do you have any before and afters to submit? Please share! I’m inspired by you!

    Great idea and blog! I’m so glad you found me… I can tell you right now, I am obsessed with before and after photos and ideas. I seriously sit at work and look for project inspiration all day. Yay!

    I do have a post for you. No pressure to use it at all. And it was a while ago…

    I love B&A’s too, who doesn’t.Feel free to check out my blog for ideas, it’s relatively new, but that is mostly what I plan to post.

    I think you have it in you to do some projects of your own. (Just don’t post the ones that don’t turn out how you planned, LOL!) If you are a little ADHD, just do a step at a time and put it aside until you feel like picking it up again.

    Good luck!

    These are all great befores & afters, it’s hard to pick a favorite. (maybe the monogrammed chair for me.) 🙂 Nice blog!
