Some Before & Afters

I don't know about you, but I love a good before & after.

I was surfing around one of my favorite sites (Southern Living) earlier today and just had to share some of their projects.

Hope you love them as much as I do.

I'm with you, I love before and afters. It's so much fun to find cheap things, and everybody ask, "What are you doing with that thing." HA!

I love befores and afters, too, and perhaps my favorite might be the last chair. I have a thing for chairs anyway. But I also love all of the other pieces too......great discoveries.

Google is having a lot of problems with the followers button-its blank so I can't click it--just came from someone elses and theirs was also blank.

I have that sewing table! It's super heavy. Mine was painted a greenish blue by my Nana and given to me when we first set up housekeeping after getting married.
