Before and After

Don't you just love a great "Before and After"? I love the New Look of this fireplace, the dark patina is perfect.

This is how it looked before, still pretty, just lacks the interest and richness that it now has. Lauren, at Simply LKJ http://simplylkj.blogspot.com/

This beautiful kitchen belongs to Susan at "Love Where YOU Live",http://thegreenplum.blogspot.com/ I just love painted cabinets and here it breaks up all the wood tones, so pretty.


The "Before", It doesn't even look like the same place! Way to go girls! 5 stars for each of you. Please go by and give them both a big hi-five.

  2. OMGosh Vicky these are amazing! I'll have to go by and take a look.
    I made one of those pillows I said I wanted to try from that book. I put it on a slipcovered chair in a store and it sold! I did the boxing with a ruffle instead of cording and then it buttoned up one side. Thank you again so much for the book. I've found so many beautiful ideas. I was going to blog about the book and pillow, but now it's gone and I didn't get pics. Well, I'll make another one.
