Before (I got sick) and Afters...

Remember the couch that I could not pick out of a line-up? Let's just say we've been reacquainted.

I am home sick again today. It's not a bad day to be at home. Ice is covering everything right now and I'd rather stay in until it thaws (or until the weekend gets here). I'd also rather not be feeling as icky as I do.


I am taking a break from the couch to say hello and bring you my before and afters. These are the little projects I did over the weekend- before I got SICK.

Little table before:

Little table after:


Little dresser before:


Little dresser after:


I can't begin to explain my new affinity for spray paint. I'm in love.
I am also headed back to the couch. I will catch up with all of you as soon as I feel up to it. Miss you much!

This "crud" has been going around far too long, youde think with the temps we've been having it would have killed it! YES, stay home and cozy into your couch, that ice is nasty! Luckily we didnt get that, just snow snow and more snow!! Im ready for Spring, what about you?

I'm so sorry that you're sick, but glad that you can be at home to rest and recuperate. There's nothing worse that having to be at work when you're sick.

OH....the porch lights are on. How inviting is that? I love your projects. You painted them with spray paint? I'm going to have to try that method because I've got some furniture to paint. I especially love the little dresser.

So sorry to hear you're sick again :( That's no fun. I LOVE your before and afters! Did you have to sand either of them before you spray painted them?? I'm sanding a chair right now to paint red. I don't like to sand.

they both look terrific! Watch out...you'll be looking at everything in a new way! Nothing will be safe! Love the red tins with the dresser!

Charity Grace said...

Well, these pictures are inspiring me to break out spray paint myself. I am really intimidated by painting. Not sure why. Your projects are beautiful!
