Outstanding Before & Afters

Before and Afters have always been one of our favorite features on Apartment Therapy. Not only do they display the creative genius of our readers, but they also demonstrate how something as simple as a little paint or elbow grease can transform a dud into a masterpiece. Each project's before and after is featured after the jump.

This roundup features transformations as simple as a new coat of paint to complete bathroom overhauls. Each and every before and after makes us look at items in our home in a different light as we are inspired to spend our weekends on some amazing DIY projects. Be sure to click through to the original posts to see how each look was achieved.
