Yes it is, so let's get started on the weekend with
some amazing Before & After projects.

 Club chairs are classic . . . . . . . 
but egg-yolk yellow velour fabric is a little dated.

So sophisticated and definitely less shocking to the senses.

I'm thinking that most of us would have walked

Before and After
Guess what?  It's a slipcover!  Seriously.

While you're at the thrift store, keep an eye

A yard sale can be fertile ground for B&A project:
What a beautiful addition to a lovely home.

One last little MCM and then we'll move on.



Believe it or not, this bathroom makeover is
completely weekend-doable:

In addition to the paint, valance, and light fixture,
framing the mirror made a huge difference

A little dab of wallpaper transformed this small bathroom:

I'm going to close today's post with a little
repurposing and a little before & after.

Okay, so it's a wood IKEA bowl.  So what?

Here's what - put two of them together and make one super cute
globe!  Visit Kristi Murphy's site for the easy step-by-step tutorial.

Whether or not you take on a B&A project of your own
this weekend, get out there and have some fun.
