Before and After's

I know that you are oh so excited to see the before and afters. You can hardly contain yourself? Well-here you go.

This is the dining room. It was originally the family room-we switched the furniture so it would be more cozy.

This is the family room. She has such a cute little potbelly stove. We wanted her to want to spend time in here. She loved it! Mission accomplished!

Sorry-not a lot of pics for the family room. I tried to get some of the window treatments-it was WAY to bright and the pics were terrible.

I love the plate rack! The plates were picked up at good will. A quarter!
I so love it when I get a good deal. My client was pretty stoked as well.

One last picture. these are the back of her kitchen cabinets. This is what you look at when you sit in the family room. Her budget was pretty small, so we had to come up with something that would not only fill the space, but look great as well.
I love how this turned out. Just got some frames from the thrift store-painted them red and voila!
She had the cute bird pic in the middle. It was such a cheap fix, and such a big impact. I must do this again.
If you have a wall that you don't know what to do with it. Do this. Cheap and easy!
My kind of project!
Ok-I think that I have talked enough for one day. Hope that you liked the pics.
Have a fantastic day! I am off to make blackberry jam! (yep-I am that domestic or stupid-one of the two)

Hey I like that heart idea below. You did an awesome job on the makeover. I really need to try out the goodwill. My mom and sister went there last week and found some great stuff.

Nice job! You still need to come over to my house and help me out with window treatments. ;)

Nicole said...

Don't tell me you were at the Tai Pan in Clearfield, I will be really ticked. That would have been so fun to run into you. One of these days we totally need to meet up, but then you'd realize what a dork I am.

Great before shots and afters. You must be an awesome shopper if you find yourself roaming the beautiful aisles of Tai Pan! I also enjoy red and makes a home happier!
It looks great!
