Baskets of Better!

When I first looked at Karianne’s bathroom here, I wasn’t too terrified.  In fact, I thought it looked pretty good, what with that dark-stained beadboard and the clawfoot tub (shell toilet notwithstanding).  But then I saw the after and it really knocked my socks off.  Then I looked closer at that amazing new sink and it knocked my socks off again!  (Let’s just pretend I was wearing two pairs of socks).  It’s light, it’s bright, it’s cool, it’s casual … it’s better!  Check it out on her blog Thistlewood Farm.

PS: I’m late the the party as usual on this, but did you
know the Google Followers tool (Google Friend Connect) is allegedly
going away?  Urg.  That’s a super huge big bummer.  BUT, luckily there
is something even better to take its place: Linky Followers.

Linky Followers is a free tool to help you keep track of the blogs you love.
(Not to mention the people who love YOUR blog!)  It has a ton of great
features, like a reader function, which allows you to read the most
recent updates of your favorite blogs, plus organizational tools for you
to categorize them.  It’s super easy to use.  You can follow Better
After by clicking on the Linky Followers tool right over there in my right sidebar —-
(That would be really cool of you if you wanted to follow me.)
In fact, I will grant you a wish if you decide to follow me!
Not really.
What am I a unicorn or something?
But if I was a unicorn, I totally would.

  4. holy smokes! This one is amazing!

  5. …..oh, and of course I’ve joined on Linky! Can’t bear the thought of missing a post from you!

  6. At first, I thought this post was called “Basket of Beer” and I got really excited. This is cool, too! Great organization idea!

  7. It looks so much bigger too! I really like this one, great job Karianne!

  8. First pic reminds me something out of a psychiatric hospital murder/ haunting movie! I WOULDN’T bathe in there if you paid me! BUT! NOW? WOW! I wanna fill it with bubbles and champagne and candles and only come out coz my champagne bottle was empty! GORGEOUS!!!!!

  9. I’m in love with this redo!

  10. I LOVE that sink!
    Is the google friend connect tool the same as the google reader?
    What about the blogger dashboard?
    I personally use the dashboard, but it doesn’t work on my cell (I can only see the top two recent posted blogs..scroll bar doesn’t work).

  11. Oooh, I am in love with this makeovers–and look at how that floor shines now that it doesn’t have to compete with the wood beadboard! Beautiful.

  12. Oh, I love how fresh that after feels!

    From what I understand about the whole GFC thing, they just aren’t letting it be on non blogger blogs anymore (like wordpress). But since you’re with blogger, it shouldn’t affect you!

  13. That bathroom is amazing (but so is everything she touches!) Following you by Linky now too! ~Lori
