before and afters...

There are a lot of fun before and afters in progress here around the house! I'll just post them as they are done (and as daylight allows for decent photos!). So stay tuned... here is one we finished this weekend.

Here is the before of some floral wall hangings I picked up at the antique shop last weekend. The antique dealer told me they were popular in the 70s and were sold in a "home show" setting (similar to a Tupperware party). I snagged them for $4 each! So $8...


Add a couple of bucks of spray paint... and voila! Here they hang over my bed... I love the contrast of the dark chocolate brown with the bold and shiny white!



The rest of the room needs some help... it's a shame that the master bedroom always comes last, doesn't it seem that way? I'll hopefully adding new linens, new bedside tables and some lamps soon. I have some ideas brewing! But this is a start!

I'll be back with more before and afters soon!

Looks great! I have a big ol' empty spot over my bed that I have been needing to fill for some time now. Love your chocolate walls!

Love the branches done white! I think perhaps they were by Home Interiors (a grade school friend's mom was rep) You'd never know it now!

I LOVE THIS!!!!! Man, I wish I were this creative... I'm the type of person that sees things and doesn't know what to do with them...
