It's Friday! And you know what that means -
yup, Before & After projects!
Let's kick off today's post with a truly fab makeover:
What I love about this project is that these types of dressers can still
be found at thrift shops for relatively reasonable prices. Click here
for the step-by-step tutorial. P.S. Awesome hardware update!
This next project is a combination of old and new techniques:
The chest was stripped then the drawers were
stained and the rest of the chest was painted.
The same technique was used on a distressed side table:
A piece that was rescued from being put out on the curb:
How many times have you walked past a dated piece of furniture
without considering the possibilities? Me, too - lots of times!
Do you have an awkward space in your home that

Joy, from Beautiful Protest, reinvented the under-used cove
between her living room and large eat-in kitchen. It's now
a music room/office. Great job, Joy!
As hubby and I struggle through our Miss Money Pitt renovation
I'm always on the lookout for (insane) people who undertake the

Living Room - Before
Living room - After
Sara Gray and her husband, Eric, of Portland, Oregon, undertook

Master bath - After
That's Sara behind the camera - hi, Sara! It's almost impossible
to photograph a small bathroom without including yourself.
Laundry room - Before
Laundry room - After
I just can't take my eyes off of those gorgeous floors!
Guest room, i.e., home office - Before
Guest room, i.e., home office - After

Thanks so much for stopping by. As you can tell from the jumbled
format of today's post, I'm still struggling without Google Chrome.
For some mysterious reason my laptop refuses to accept my
numerous attempts of trying to reinstall it.
Hopefully, I'll have the problem cleared up this weekend. See you Monday!
