As a tribute to one of my favorite blogs Better After, I thought I would post some better after projects that I have been up to lately. If you've never checked out Better After I highly recommend it. A great place to get inspiration and how to take drab to fab.
First is this old TV cabinet that was given to us by Adam's parents. It has been in our living room by the stairs for a while and collecting junk. I have been itching to give it a face lift.
Big Basket: $17.00 at Michaels
2 Cans of Spray Paint: $8.00
Total: about $25.00
Definitely cheaper than buying one brand new, even somewhere like ikea.
Next up an easy project that adds a special touch to any gathering or party.
Hideous frame from Goodwill: $1.00
Chalkboard paint: already had
Look for that frame in an upcoming baby shower that I'm hosting!
Lastly was not a major DIY project but I'm still super excited about them. Our couch pillows are from when we first got married I had bought them and even though they were a little over sized for the couch I kept them anyways. But it was time for them to retire....
YHL another fabulous design blog that I highly recommend. We talk about John&Sherry as if we know them!)
I had seen these pillows on West Elm before and they were on clearance. I decided not to get them right then but I still daydreamed occasionally about skipping through a field of daises while swinging the pillow around in the air in a full on love affair. BUT THEN Sherry posted about these SAME pillows that she purchased on YHL and said that they were now free shipping, so I batted my eyelashes a little at hubs and he caved so they were mine all mine! I got them today and oh.my.gosh. they were even more beautiful than I had imagined!
They were just pillow covers, so reusing what I already had I cut the guts out of the pillow that had a hole in it and stuffed away.
