Before......I bought this little gem at my thrift store for $4! I wasn't sure exactly if I LOVED it, I knew I liked it, definately for $4 bucks. I figured I could use the frame for something else if I decided to take out the picture.
After......okay, I think it's a keeper. It's my first thrift store artwork find, so I wasn't quite sure what I thought about it. I really do LOVE it.
The blues seem to pop a little better with the white frame. It just looks more fresh and updated!
I think I'll keep it where it is, my piano needed something!

Before...I really wanted to get rid of their bunkbeds, they weren't horrible, but I had an idea!
I've been storing these headboards and footboards downstairs for a few years now, they were mine and my sisters while we were in our teens. My step-mom gave them to me because she knew that we'd probably need them eventually with how many kids we have! It was one of those things that I always looked at but never knew if I should paint them because of their sentimental value. Well I decided it was time. Now my girls can create their OWN memories and actually ENJOY them, instead of them gathering dust in the basement.
I kept the same bedding, so it isn't a COMPLETE bedroom makeover. Infact, I still need to repaint the walls....I'm not sure what color exactly.
But it's cozy and girlie for now.
I REALLY wanted the beds side by side with an adorable chair in between as their nighstand, I tried EVERY layout possible- a no go! The room is just too small :( So we formed an L shape, my daughter Lini pointed it out and said it was an L for her name. It fits.

Before.....this little lady had so much potential! I was so happy that we had a little, (very little) bit of warm weather to work on this piece that's been sitting in my garage for 5 months! I didn't attach the mirror for the before picture, but you can imagine.
After..... I did this a very pale pink for an adorable, deserving little girl. Every girl needs a whimsical, magical dresser with a mirror to dance in front of!
I kept the same hardware. I'm guessing this dresser is from the 40's. Dove-tail drawers and wood casters, aw...I'm in love!
I distressed it somewhat heavily. I just went to town and now have a blister forming on the side of my thumb!
I hope she loves it, fingers crossed!
