Okay, so I know I haven’t done any original projects for a little bit… please bear with me just a little while longer. I am in somewhat of a holding pattern as I prep for a cross state move to Arizona. I do have a couple smaller projects that I will finish up soon, but as soon as we move there I will have a plethera of new, original and fun ideas for you! In the meantime, I will bring you fun ideas and blogs I have found in my efforts to bring you fun new design trends.
So I found a fun new blog yesterday that features great “Before and After” projects. I will be featuring several of my favorites.
After throwing up a little in my mouth and having flashbacks to my childhood (sorry mom) upon seeing this before picture… I was pleasantly surprised the after!
This project is straight up BRILLIANT! How many houses and thrift stores have the old built in TV cabinets of yester years? I have to admit, as creative as I am, I would have kept walking right on by this, but after seeing this I might seek one out. The after is amazing! Love it.
Here are a series of great chair makeovers. Bold and fun.
A design trend I am totally digging right now, is accent chairs with caning that has been painted out. Classy and a little British Colonial touch.
Also love painted out wood trim mixed with funky fabric.
I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to redo a sofa with wood trim for my living room, maybe someday, for now I have way to many projects ahead of it in line. But here are some fun inspiration pieces.
Gotta love these great kitchen makeovers… you all know I love me a beautiful white kitchen. Here are some great examples of what paint can do.
Don’t be afraid to take on some scarier projects, like this dresser.
This type of hutch is a pretty easy find. Another great transformation.
I would love to find something like this for my closet, because between my husband and I we have a lot of shoes! It would be great for this.
So check out the Better After Blog for great design inspirations.
