Happy Friday!  Let's celebrate the upcoming
weekend with some Before & After projects:

 1960s faux-Early American telephone bench . . . .

. . . .transformed into a useful foyer seat.

Looking for an inspirational idea

It would never have occurred to me to convert a
battered end table into an ottoman.  Charming!

Here's a simply darling side table re-do:
The updated hardware is an affordable, essential touch.

Don't you love the surprising red top
on this Duncan Phyffe table makeover?

With the popularity of flat-screen TVs, thrift
stores are teeming with old entertainment cabinets:

Pick one up inexpensively and use it for storage.

Take a look at these imaginative seating projects: 

Before:                   After:

Love the refreshing fabric!

Before:               After:
The black paint and contemporary fabric

Whatever project you undertake this weekend, make it fun!
