A Before and After Thursday? What's the world coming to?!
Yes, Fridays at fleaChic are usually reserved for Before and After
projects but let's just live a little dangerously this week. Ready?
A little beach bungalow was just bursting with potential: Sunset Homes
What a beautiful transformation!
This before kitchen isn't terrible, just a little dark and compact: Sunset Homes
A gorgeous new skylight and an expanded window change the lighting situation completely. The wall of cabinets is amazing, isn't it? And I just realized that the floor and ceiling are reflections of each other. Very cool.
A tiny backyard went from over grown to all grown up:
The distressed Mid-Century Modern dresser, left, was in fairly pitiful shape:
What a stylish makeover! I love that they found period appropriate hardware and hand painted the sides of the drawers.
Another end table rescued from a thrift shop:Number Fifty-Three

Priced at $1 each these vintage lamps now looks like a million bucks:
A nifty little chest went from blah to groovy:
Yes, I said groovy.
Urban Comfort is one classy site - beautiful photos and realistic, down-to-Earth projects. Here are a couple of makeovers that were featured on the blog last year that you'll probably find interesting:

Many of you are aware that I have struggled with my posts for several weeks. Apparently, after consulting with numerous professionals, my laptop is possessed. It rejected Chrome and absolutely will not allow me to reload it which makes BlogSpot blogging extremely difficult.
Tomorrow Mom and I leave for a quick road trip up to Washington DC, for my granddaughter's high school graduation. While I'm gone the Demon Controlled laptop will be in the shop where it will receive a much needed exorcism.
Please email me any incantations you think might help the process. In the meantime, enjoy your weekend!
