BooMama’s Before and After ~


It’s a before and after project. So all you have to do is post about something you want to re-do, re-decorate, clean up, etc. and then do it before July 25th and re-post your before and after results. How cool and motivating is that. To get the official scoop click over to BooMama.

Here’s what I’m going to try to do.

1. Create an inviting atmosphere on my deck in Seattle (I’m in our condo in So. California right now but I get to be at my home in Seattle from July 1st – August 15th )


2. Do a thorough cleaning of my Seattle home since my adult children have been “taking care of it” while I’m in Southern California.

3. Show some photos of our huge project…redoing the basement. My husband only has 3 weeks in Seattle so I don’t know what we’ll be able to accomplish but I will show the progress…

Here are some photos of the torn up basement. We had some water issues so this was a “have to do” project! The hard part about my husband completing this project is that we are living 1200 miles away right now because of his job.


So I hope to show you some great changes July 25th!

Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage. They have blacked out all those photos on my blog posts. OH BOTHER! I’m slowly cleaning up my posts.

  1. Good Day!! This before and after challenge is a fun idea! Your basement will undoubtedly be very nice when you are done. The deck will be great to see refreshed!
    I have a project going…and will refer it to Boo Mama.

  2. Hi Ellen,

    Home projects, though challenging sometimes, end up being fun because of the sense of satisfaction when you get things to be where they need to be!

    I can’t wait to see more before/after pictures!


  3. A project worthy of the Home and Garden Television! I look forward to seeing your results. You are SO good at taking pictures. Even from Cali you have pictures of your basement in WA! I’m very impressed, Ellen!!!!


  4. I’ll be tuning in to see how your project is going.
    I’ll be waiting for my first grandbaby. I suppose one could do a “before and after’ photo of that too?


  5. This sounds like good motivation. Your basement seems like a huge project. I like how you said you want to see progress. That seems a reasonable goal.

  6. oh renos are so fun. . well at least the decorating part. My dear man has done the unpleasant parts more time than he’d like to recall. I’ll look forward to the finished project.
