DIY Showcase::Before & After

When I started blogging about 9 months ago, I could have never imagined where it would take me and what I would find.  I've been amazed at all talent that I see on each of your blogs...whether it be fashion, food, decor, DIY, or any combination of the above.  I've also been introduced to some of you who don't have official blogs yet, but definitely harbor an incredible knack for inventing and reinventing all things beautiful.

Jamie is one of those people.  I've known her now for some time, but had NO idea how amazingly talented she is when it comes to DIY and furniture makeovers.  And she's a photographer to top things off!  Check out her website here.  She's shared some of her projects with me and I begged asked her to showcase some of them with all of you.  Thankfully, she obliged.

I love how these bookshelves are styled...the turqouise is defintiely a fun theme with a lot of her work!  And what a great idea to fill an awkward cove.

What a great idea...add feet on the bottom, paint white, and add some great hardware.  Totally Pottery Barn worthy.

What a transformation with the gold hardware.

I LOOOOOVE this headboard...I think a DIY tutorial is in order, don't you?  Say yes and maybe we can twist her arm!

**Headboard tutorial found here!**

OH and remember the succulents we had at each place setting for our wedding?


Well, I had NO idea that you could replant these little guys after they had been cut.


But Jamie did and she replanted a couple...here they are thriving and doing well 2 years later!  LOVE!  

I swear, Jamie has more talent and creativity in her little pinkie than I could ever hope to have.  I'll definitely look forward to what she does next...perhaps a blog or Etsy shop is finally in her future?!

Hope you're having great a great Wednesday so far!
