What fun to end the week with a Before & After Friday.  Today's
post features a mix of furniture, front porches, and fabulous rehabs.


 As much as I love natural wood:
. . . . this after table really is adorable:


The laminate on this high boy
was damaged in several spots:

So, why not paint it?
I get where they were going with the paint
treatment but it's a tad bright for my taste.


Do you prefer the painted hutch to the wood finish?


This affordable Craigslist dresser was
a great beginner's painting project: 


Oh, dear.  This dresser was quite dreadful:

Adorable now, isn't it?


Two 'unrelated' thrift store pieces were brought
together with a little paint.  Darling.


Here is another example of combining two different
style pieces to make a fabulous new treasure:

Paint and upholstery gave this $10
chair an extended, useful life:

I adore this faux French Provencial vanity makeover:
Decor Hacks


Thrift stores are literally teeming with outdated
armoires and entertainment cabinets:
Vintage Key Antiques

Enough great furniture fixes.  Let's take a look at some larger projects.

This breakfast nook had potential but was too dark:
What a difference a coat of white paint can make!


Look how inviting this porch is now:


This sweet cottage upped its cuteness factor:



The front of this house definitely needed an enhancement:

And, boy, was it beautifully enhanced!
Wish they could relocate the satellite dish : (


Your eyes aren't deceiving you.
It is the same house in both photos:
Completely amazing renovation.


Did you know that the State of Washington awards
grants for the restoration of historic barns?
Before:

After:
Unbelievable.  Simply unbelievable.

I hope you enjoyed today's Before & After projects
and were inspired to take on a project of your own.

Just remember -
