Before/After July 31, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — jephotography @ 12:34 am

So here is my little distraction for the afternoon. Sometimes, I need a hands on creative outlet, and need it STAT. I’m not a “crafts” person, at all. I totally stink at anything paper crafty. I admire you peeps out there who love it and are good at it. Anyhow. I love the feeling of taking something boring, and over looked and sprucing it up.  I have done this with a few pieces in my home, and sometimes fantasize of getting rid of all my furniture and starting over. It’s a sickness. It took me 3 hours total to do this. From Purchase to Photo finish.

Anyhow, here is my little Before/After **  DIY**  Why I burned Dinner…

Cute Mid-centuryish chair. I really wanted to keep the wood natural but there were to many boo boos and the wood wasn’t as pretty as I hoped.

After a good sanding/and painting and re-upholstering….Voila!

Just what I was hoping for! Happy girl, Happy Mama.
