Before and After

Everybody loves a good before and after shot, right??!!  So, I thought we should start a new series called “Before and After”.  I know, i know…your wondering how i thought of such an incredibly original name.  Well, we wouldn't want to give away our secrets now, would we.

Onward.  The following post is brief and simple, but is not for the faint of heart.  All you natural wood lovers should probably not read on, and if you do, we can not be held responsible for any health risks the following photos may pose.

A simple chair make-over.


I know what your thinking.  The wood and rush seating are in perfect shape.  Now why would I want to go and change anything.  Well, quite frankly I was bored…bored stiff, so i decided to add some color.


A little crazy, I know.  This color is obviously not for everyone, but boy do they look different, don't they.  A few bucks later and you've got some colorful, updated chairs that are ready for a new home.

And remember that little yellow outdoor set I posted about yesterday?  Well I snapped a photo of it in it's new home.  So happy and sun shiny.

So, hopefully I've motivated you to look at your old furniture in a new way.  A little bit of paint goes a long way.

Cheers to a vintage life well lived.
