what motivates you?

Having house guests, inviting the neighborhood for a bbq, hosting holiday dinners,
 your turn for the gourmet group, your annual Christmas party?
yes, yes, yes, yes, and yes
Telling your blog readers you're going to complete a project - YES!

Lisa @ Shine Your Light is one of the sweetest in the blogosphere,
and she has a St. Bernard (near and dear to my heart as I grew up with them).
Her announcement of her First Before & After Party was my motivation
to get moving on my dining room.
First Friday in January we posted what we would complete by the last Friday in January.
Come over and see the before & after projects, I've had some peeks and you're in for a treat! 

BEFORE
Although I didn't get to all of my goals I shared here, I was happy to have this complete. 


AFTER
New paint and nailhead ceiling you can read the details here and here.





I think I should link it up again next month to keep the motivation going! :)

Awww thank you for those kind words my friend! So glad to give you a little motivation....all those other things motivate me too! (Speaking of which, I need to invite some people over so I can get my living room finished!)

Your ceiling is just AMAZING, Pam. I fear that friends near and far will be begging you to do theirs now! (my ceilings are looking a little bland now....just saying! :)

Thanks for being a part of the first Before & After parties! Hope you join in again with your fabulous ideas!

I'm in awe of your talents and beautiful ceiling. I can't imagine tackling a project like that. I love that your blog includes so many beautiful things that I don't see everywhere. Unique and beautiful style.

I just stumbed across your blog and fell in love! What a great little spot to sit and drink my morning coffee and enjoy the moment!
I am so glad I found you - have a wonderful weekend.

Oh my goodness Pam! I cannot believe how gorgeous your ceiling turned out...or how much time it must have taken. I love it.
