TGI (B&A) F ! !
Yes, thank goodness it's a Before & After Friday.

I don't know what the temperature was last night where you
live but up here in Minnesota it was -17 degrees.  Brrrrrrr.

Let's warm up with some HOT Before and After projects.

Next time you come across a homely little end table remember these photos:
Apartment Therapy

And you can work magic on an old dresser
with a can of paint and new drawer pulls: 
Centsational Girl

Shabby In Suburbia

As much as it pains me to paint certain
woods, this highboy really is beautiful:
Tattered Elegance

Home DIT recently featured 28 Before & After chair projects.
Here are just a few of the amazing makeovers:

The most humble chairs and sofas can be improved with new upholstery.


And, lastly, this dated kitchen was in sore need of some B&A TLC:

Gentle Hands Restoration
LOVE that stone back splash.

Whatever your plans this weekend, have fun and
stay warm.  See you Monday back in Florida!


  1. Wow! Lots of nice transformations! Thanks so much for Following my blog today. I'm your newest Follower, too! Susan

  2. Some very inspiring transformations! -17?!?!?!? We hadn't been out of the teens in a couple of days here in Central Texas, but that 2 inches of snow that crippled the city and shut down the schools is thawing today! Feeling pretty balmy in the mid-30's now.....

  3. Great transformations. Being a lover of all things white the dresser, though not as dramatic as some of the others, was my favorite. We were about 16 above this morning so much warmer than you!

  4. I love when you do these! SO very awesome!!! Nicole

  5. Wow!! These are some amazing before and afters!! Very talented folks! Thank you for stopping by... you are so very right, of all the things I worried about when my children were growing up, their living 1200 miles away was NOT one of them. =) blessings ~ tanna
