Please accept my apology for being so delinquent in featuring
Before & After projects.  I've missed the motivation and inspiration, too.

Having obtained her permission, I'm so pleased to introduce you to Sharley
at Double Take Decor.  Her transformations are genius: 

Uninteresting chest Before:

Contemporary and fresh After:

Tired, dull dresser Before:

Exciting, cool dresser After:

Ordinary 70's headboard Before:

Fabulous paint treatment After:

A dated, heavy credenza Before:

So chic after:
Stop by Double Take Decor for more of Sharley's brilliant makeovers.

One of the hardest projects can be trying to re-do a re-do:

                        Before:                                    After:
Repurposed Vintage Finds

Penny at flea market makeovers is known for taking on some
very distressed, sad pieces and completely transforming them
into charming, useful additions to any home:


I completely bow to the brilliance of Lindsay at better after.  She
scours the blogisphere in search of incredible re-dos to share with us:

Who could have imagined how spectacular this
hutch could be with a simple paint treatment?
 The painted knobs really pop.

We might walk right past this abandoned
little stool at a thrift store or a yard sale:

It sure would grab our attention now.  LOVE the 'dipped' legs:

Last month I came across an armoire almost identical to this one:

Had I seen these results I would have hauled it home:

Prepare to be completely 'wow-ed' by this next project:


And, lastly, painting and landscaping were just about all it took
to transform this dreary little house into a storybook cottage:

better after
I've always been a sucker for painted brick!
Have a great day.
