I can hardly go a week without featuring Before & After
projects.  They're so inspiring and motivating, aren't they?

Dressers like this one can often be found at thrift stores and yard sales:


Sweet Pickins
The paint treatment really makes the carving stand out, doesn't it?

A little touch-up paint and a small amount of
fabric made a huge difference in this chair's life:
                                      Before:                        After:               

Look how pitiful this buffet was Before:

And now it's so happy After:
Love the wire baskets!

Wow, what a difference a lighter palette can make:

Every element of this kitchen re-do is perfect:


Nellie Schmalz
From dark and brooding to light and inviting - Kitchen Perfection!

This bathroom was a little dated but,
gosh, it wasn't that bad Before:
But, the After is spectacular, isn't it?

A patio can provide an extra room,
albeit an outdoor one, to any house.  

Acceptable  Before:

Amazing  After:

Who would have thought that this
little table could be awesome?!
      Before:                                                               After:

The chair on the right is obviously the 'before' of the pair.  It's
almost unbelievable how much more attractive the chair on
the left is after a paint treatment and a toile fabric seat cover. 

Just by looking at it, you'd think that this little
dresser had just about seen it's best days . . . . .

Think, again!

Even though I love vintage furniture,
this velour 70s sofa is a bit much:

This, I could live with! 
 The Brick House

The next time you come across an old light
fixture at a yard sale, give it a second "once-over".

Apartment Therapy
A can of spray paint saved these home-
owners quite a bit of money.  So fleaChic!


  1. Yes, love Before & Afters! The side tables/ buffets are great.

  2. I like the kitchen make-over. They haven't replaced any of the doors - just repainted them. Jx

  3. I love seeing before and afters . . . I can never get enough of them.
    Thank you for the very inspiring, post:)
    Your blogging sister, Connie :)

  4. Oh I do love a good makeover!! There is no excuse these days to buy new, when you can make over second hand things into something very beautiful! Have a lovely weekend. Karen x
