Home decorating before and after pictures are inspiring. I have always found before and after pictures of room decorating, outdoor garden ideas and even craft ideas really interesting.
They inspire you to go out there and give something a go.
Check Out Some Of My Home Decorating Before & After Pictures.
1. My Daughters Bedroom
This is my before photo of my daughters bedroom. We had just moved into our new rental and my daughter was sticking things up on her wall anywhere. Pictures were haphazard and the room looked bland and univiting.
We can not paint the walls and while pale dirty pink is not really my idea of an ideal wall colour, you have to work with what your've got.
The budget was tight ....the mind was whirring........and my lightbulb moment occurred in a discount store.....Wrapping paper! For details on how I decorated the room check out wall decoration ideas
Funnily enough as much as I dislike the walls, the pink in the spots combined quite well, the room became brighter and my daughter loved it.
The small flower patterns in the bed covering actually had the same colors as the dots. I added a gingham green and white check pillow behind her white one to add an extra burst of colour.
It was fun and very easy to put up.
2. Ikea Billy Bookcase Make Over
Ikea has some great budget furniture finds, I bought this Billy bookcase about 4 years ago and it was starting to look a little worse for wear. As you can see from the photo, it looked boring, untidy and needed a bit of spark.
I emptied the bookcase, cleaned it and removed all marks, added flower contact and three small wooden flower craft decorations, which I painted green.
I devoted the top shelves to holding her display bits and pieces and the bottom shelves to books.
I was not sure how the contact would work, but it came up quite well and certainly made the bookcase look a little smarter.
It also helped that I sorted out and removed a lot of books from her Kinder years. A de-clutter is always a good thing.

My younger daughter was very happy with the outcome....she was especially happy with the tidy room. I originally only wanted to clean and decorate the bookcase......but as all mums know...and home dads, one job leads to another and before I knew it, the whole room had been cleaned and tidied.
I wonder how long the tidy room will last?????????
3. Kitchen Table Makeover
This next home decorating before and after project has to do with my old kitchen table. The original table was a typical glossy, honey color pine table I bought off ebay for $250.
After a few years wear and tear with young children, and days of art and craft, the table was beginning to look old and tired. So I painted the table and chairs white, and left the table top clear.
I actually didn't mind the table top looking old and arty, but my dear hubby hated it. A few years later, and another rental move on, it began to look even more old and scratched and the chairs were beginning to come apart.
I still did not mind the 'shabby chic' look, but my hubby and daughters were beginning to get sick of it.......so I decided to create a whole new look.

So What Do You Think?
My hubby and daughters love it, in fact it has so inspired my eldest daughter she spent a whole afternoon tidying up her room. She is also very keen to paint her own bedroom chair.
I will include it when she has completed it. It is fun to see my own kids become inspired and want to recycle and recreate furniture pieces.
