A New Look for B+A DIY

February 27, 2012

You may have noticed that Before + After DIY got a nice little facelift over the weekend!  Yep, I’ve been meaning to do it for awhile, but finally set the time aside to spruce things up on the interwebs.  I’ve spend so much time DIY’ing the house, it’s about time I put the same time into DIY’ing the blog page.

I played around with a bunch of different designs and layouts, but finally decided on this new, clean layout.  My first goal was to clean up the background.  The new white space is far less distracting.  I was never a fan of my generic wordpress pink “Bueno” theme.  To be honest (because, let’s face it I am the girl who shares everything) I’m not well versed in webpages and web design (which I’m sure is fairly obvious).  I’ve just been learning as I go…kind of like how I DIY!

My second goal was to make the archive files easy to navigate.  With this new webpage you should be able to drop down by month and see all the posts for that month, making for a much easier search.  If for some reason you can not locate a certain post just send me an email at

Lastly, I wanted to include a picture of our completely renovated (and mostly DIY’d) home in the header.  After searching through  a bunch of photos from this summer I came across an awesome photo of the front of our home.  After taking the time to do a little photoshopping, I designed this way more appropriate header….voila!

So I hope you like the new design and layout.  You should find it much easier to navigate.  If you have any comments/concerns/questions feel free to leave a message below!
