December Before and After

December 03, 2012

Danielle took a little table garage sale table and transformed her with paint:

I call it “her” cause of her pretty long legs…with pink at the ends! Love this! :)

Julie found this awesome trunk (found it!!) and took it home for a little union jack magic:

What a perfect coffee table! Tons of storage in that baby!

Cristina’s dresser looks like a fairly straightforward (and beautiful!) paint job at first:

But check out her post to see how she changed it up! Brilliant!

Liz needed a kitchen island but couldn’t find one that was the right size. So they found a sofa table and transformed it:

Awesome!! It looks so custom. And whooee, check out that gorgeous kitchen too!

I LOVE projects like these – changing up a piece to make it work for YOUR needs. Most of these were transformed with just paint and a little time.
