Hammers and High Heels

Hammers and High Heels – That has to be one of my favorite names for a blog.  Cute, isn’t it?  Meet Carla. When I read her bio, it sounded a little familiar.  We have a lot in common. Like me?  You’ll like her too!  She’s a fairly new blogger with a 1924 Dutch Colonial fixer upper.  Do you know what that means?!  Yes!  D-I-Y!!!  + older home + beautiful style = love.  Click the links to visit the full posts and her blog full of DIY projects, before/after makeovers and an entire page devoted to DIY tutorials. Ready, all ready? 

Here are some before and after photos from her home tour (click the link to see ALL photos and details about the transformation).
This is her living room now.  It’s beautiful. I love the slate gray walls, comfy furniture and  creamy white trim and accents (love that trunk!).  I want to be here to relax and unwind, snuggle and watch a movie or sit and catch up with a friend…

This was the living room before:

This was the bathroom before. 
This is the bathroom now.  Love the tile!
Dining room before:

Dining room now.  Don’t you love those numbered slipcovers?  It does not look like the same room!

Kitchen before:

Kitchen now.  I love the open shelving and white cabinets. 
You have to pop over to see her kitchen nook too (so much character in this house).  Here is the stove in another nook:
That nook now looks amazing!
The landing at the top of the stairs before was dark and boring.
Now it’s bright and looks so much bigger!
The guest room before:
And Carla, lucky, lucky girl had a little help from Kevin and Layla from The Lettered Cottage and this is her guest room now (all ready for a blog friend or two, right?  haha)…
Beautiful home!  Thanks so much to Carla for sharing her before and after makeovers!  Doesn’t that just make you want to dive in and DIY?  Me too!
I was so tempted to start sharing her tutorials and other delicious DIY projects too but then you wouldn’t have any reason to visit her.  So…head on over to Hammers and High Heels to see MORE clever, cute and creative projects!
