I had the opportunity to pick out EVERYTHING for this three level home. I got the blueprint and then picked out the cabinets, vanities, countertops, backsplash, lighting, flooring, and paint. Oh…and then I got to stage it!! Talk about a Dream Job!

Here are some before and after photos. That's is…just photos. It's the holiday season, it is hectic and who doesn't love before and after photos. I love them for just about anything. Hair make-overs, fashion make-overs; remember the TV show "What Not To Wear?" I loved that show! What happened to it?

Anyway, sit back and sip your favorite beverage and enjoy this makeover!
