Outstanding Before & After Projects

You guys know that I have a huge soft spot (at the top of my head) for Before and After photos.  
They're just so motivating:  

BEFORE - bummed out settee

AFTER - now so classy!

A $10 vintage chair got a better facelift than Joan Rivers:

BEFORE - ordinary abandoned chair

AFTER - paint really makes the casters pop
and paisley prints are hot, hot, hot!

BEFORE - these shelf units have seen better days.

AFTER - a sleek and chic campaign chest!

You would be hard pressed to find a thrift store that
doesn't have inexpensive quilting hoops.  These
sophisticated orbs were less than $1.


It's hard to believe that this is the same dresser.  Some serious Wow Factor going on but lots of elbow grease, too.

People, hutches like the one below are eagerly waiting to be adopted: 

Incredible, right?!

I never cease to be amazed by the results of painting over paneling.  A staple in home construction in the 1960's and 70's, synthetic paneling can be transformed with the right treatment.  

Check with your local paint store or building supply    store before undertaking this type of project.                                                                                                       
Our moods are tremendously affected by the colors of our environment.  Now the room is light, soft and welcoming.    P.S. Those lamps are to die for!
