Before and Afters

There's something exciting to me about before and after pictures. They seriously make me giddy. They are incredibly motivating. I love to see what things can become and I find it very interesting to see what direction people go with their refashions. I found a really great site last week that has a before and after section that I have loved to look over. The site is called Design*Sponge. 

 Here are a couple of my favorites:

These are from a Design*Sponge reader named Bethany.  I Love-lOve-loVe-lovE LOVE how these turned out. I really want to copy this idea and have all mismatched chairs that are painted the same color with coordinating fabrics. Did I say I love this yet??

This is from another Design*Sponge reader from Branson Missouri. Her name is Sarah.  She bought the fabric at Ikea. I love the crispness of the white and red. White and red together always make me happy.

These next couple of items are from Monica at the Craftynest.  These tables are super delicious even before the a restyle, but look how much personality they have with the black and cream print.

And can you believe this transformation! Great job Monica!!The next couple of projects are from people in our own little play group! I love how Cynthia restyled these candlesticks.  Aren't they so very cute?  Check out more of her stuff HERE.Another great refashion from our play group( I like the sound of that better than "followers").  This old dresser looks amazing as an updated entertainment center.  This is by Jen from The Thrifty Home.

I have had so much fun with these before and after shots I think I will start a Friday segment to showcase before and after pictures. I'll be searching for my favorites and if you have any you'd like to have featured shoot me an email at with before and after in the subject line.  I'll start that up a week from tomorrow!  Happy restyling!!

  1. I love that I am part of your play group, that sounds so fun! I was first attracted to your site because of your before and after projects. The problem for me is to remember to take the "before" pictures.


It's such a pleasure to hear from you! Thank you for taking a moment to comment. If you have a question, please leave me your email address! Thanks a million!
