You know what today is - Before & After Friday!!!

Oh, Craig's List, you have such great Befores!
You know I'm a nut for Mid-Century Modern and usually prefer
that each piece remain in it's original simply-stained state.
But these next two 'Afters' are kind of amazing, aren't they?

Large pieces can be daunting but remember - the
greater the challenge, the greater the reward:
This 1970's credenza was given an extended
useful life with a simple paint treatment.

Do you have a piece of furniture that needs a personality change?
Forever Decorating
Yes, a little paint can certainly make a huge difference.

Do you have a drab office chair that needs a little pick-me-up?
                                   Before                                              After
Don't forget to spray paint the legs!
Here's a 2-fer: a B&A project and a Repurposing
Turn a dated coffee table into an
upholstered foot-of-the-bed bench.

How darling is this little stool with its new
pink cushion and fabric covered legs?!
Can't find a wallpaper you like but just have to cover up the old?

Paper over it with pages from an atlas 'til you find what you want!

(The owner used the pages of city listings instead of the maps - very clever.)
 Now, in closing, prepare to be amazed:
Before (2 views)

After (2 views)

The arched entry way at the stairs, a new door, the chair rail,
the stunning new floors - it's all completely wonderful.

Of the many incredible improvements to this kitchen,
the ceiling can get overlooked but it is one of the best:
Acorn Design Interiors
Unbelievable, isn't it?  LOVE the art hung in the kitchen.

Thanks to the marvels of modern technology today's post was sent to you from
the beautiful rolling plains of Mount Pleasant, Iowa.  Have a great weekend!
