Before & After Projects are the icing on our little Friday cupcake!
Kathryn Jasper of Makin' It In Memphis is a very creative and clever
young lady. Her darling personality shines through everything she
does, especially when it comes to renovating the classic 1960s
bungalow she shares with her equally darling husband.
Since 2010, the young Jaspers have devoted themselves to updating their
home. The subtle changes really make a huge impact - they replaced the
wrought iron with columns, replaced the large window and front door,
painted the porch siding and trimmed back the landscaping. Beautiful!
And, as if the exterior of their home wasn't impressive
enough, check out their renovated kitchen:
Such hard work, such amazing results!
This kitchen re-do was recently featured on HGTV - so elegant and efficient.
It's almost rude to make this comment but I would probably have painted
the metal windows white instead of dark. But that's just my preference.
While big renovations produce big rewards, smaller projects are satisfying, too:
A little fabric, a little spray paint - viole, a chic new patio chair:
Thrift shops are teeming with china cabinets just begging for an update:
One thing I'll say for painting large pieces of furniture -
the intricate scroll work really stands out now:
Sometimes a little fabric and a staple gun can transform
a nondescript chair into a contemporary wonder:
If you have time this weekend stop by your local flea market or thrift shop.
You might be surprised at the treasures you uncover. Happy hunting!
