Before and After


After (Tip, don't attempt stripes your first try.  My mistake!!)

I LOVE to do home projects.  I am convinced if I had the right tools, I could do anything!  I finished recovering a chair last night and thought  would share some of my favorite before and afters with you.  I wish I had the time/money/space to do more.  It is a fun creative outlet for me, but also it is such a feeling of accomplishment once the project is finished. 

My Peddler's Mall find

After some serious sanding, stripping, and painting!  With the help of brick tiles, 2 x 4s, and plywood it made a beautiful faux fireplace.

The Kitchen Before (Well, after I painted the walls and cabinets, but before I tiled.)

The Kitchen After.  These are 1"x1" glass tiles.  I wasn't too bad, I really enjoyed it!

I am super impressed with your projects! I love to do things like this too, but I do not have the patience for one inch tiles. Bravo!
