How many times have you meandered through a flea market or thrift store and spied a beautiful but battered vintage piece of furniture that really intrigued you? Pretty often, I'll bet. You ask yourself, "Where would I put it? How much work does it need? How much less would they take?!"
The secretary whispered,
"Take me home." You whispered back, "Okay."
After some sanding and painting, enjoy the oohs and ahhs as it sits in your living room!
The amazingly wonderful things about this next Before and After - it's super easy and thrift stores are teeming with chairs such as this one for as little as $10 or less.

Classic Midcentury Modern design by Richard Powers
retailing for over $15,000.
The drapes absolutely make this room. Love them.
Yes, wallpaper is making a comeback. I know, I know. We've become use to our smooth, soothing, beautifully painted walls. Prepare yourself. (Just a warning.) And, I adore the repurposed dresser
sitting beside the fireplace - provides great storeage, too. Bet you have one of those hidden away in
one of your guest rooms. Get it out and drag it to the living room!
