Happy Friday!

Get ready for a little weekend motivation.  What's more inspiring than Before and After photos?

LOVE the fabric!


A few posts ago I featured the darling dresser (left) created
by Kristy and George of 4 the love of wood.  These are two of the
most creative people I've found on the 'net.  If you haven't
visited their site , please do.  

Another one of their subway sign dressers is shown in the
Before and After photos below:

Before - distressed old dresser:

                                                                                           After - what a transformation!

Do you have a traditional dated desk that needs a pick-me-up?  

Before: a stodgy, boring desk
   After:  a paint treatment and new handles
                                                                               make such a startling difference


Before:  vintage colanders

After:  too cute lighting

Repeat after me, "I can turn almost anything into a lamp!"

Before:  just plain shabby

  After:  Stylishly shabby!

Before:  a regular picnic basket

After:  an ooh-la-la picnic basket!

Before:  ho-hum wood candlesticks

After:  vintage pedestals

Repurposed candlesticks can also
be used as cake plate stands.

I hope today's Before and After photos inspire you to get creative this weekend.
