Favorites of 2009: Room Re-do's

Once again, I'd like to thank you for linking up to our "Thrifty Tips" post yesterday. You guys sure know how to pinch pennies with panache!

Today's "Favorites" is about linking up to your favorite room re-do of the year. There's nothing like a seeing a great "before and after" is there? :-)

Remember these?

Now it's your turn!

If you've got a favorite room re-do you'd like to share, just create a link that leads to the specific post it can be found in. Give your link a descriptive title like, "Emily's Country Kitchen" so that we'll know what type of room we're about to see and who it belongs to. (It doesn't have to be a room in your own home, it could be one you saw on another blog)

And THANK YOU in advance for linking up! I can't wait to see all the terrific transformations everyone shares!

Also, as promised, tomorrow's "Favorites" is about our favorite blog posts of the year. The one you link can either be one you wrote, or one written by someone else that was so good you're still thinking about it.
I've got a few I can't wait to link to. You're going to LOVE them!
And don't forget, will be selecting the winner of our True Value Giveaway #2 at noon tomorrow, so if you entered, swing by for a visit to see if you've won!

Happy New Year Layla and Kevin.
You have totally given me wonderful ideas, creative new roads to explore with very little money, and a sense of hominess that is present in every makeover you do for yourself or others this year.
I keep you in my prayers for a wonderful 2010 where all your dreams come true.

Best wishes always. geri.
p.s. now if I could just get out of the P.J.'s and away form all the great posts once again this week, I may get a titch creative today. hehe
