Saved By Blue Paint

The pretty gal from Saved By Grace started her blog to post photos of her before and afters. She has some talent! I love this pretty turquoise desk! The zebra print chair is really fun too.

This unique hutch has beautiful lines and looks gorgeous in that pretty blue.

Be sure to check out the rest of her furniture makeovers {HERE}

Chandelier Chair

I'm probably not the only one who is intimidated by reupholstering a chair. It looks like a lot of work! Sommer at Designer Garden has a step by step tutorial on how she reupholstered her thrifted chair. You wouldn't ever guess this was her first time, either. She did a beautiful job. I love the fabric she chose too---little chandeliers!

hello yellow

I sort of have a crush on console tables. I LOVE them! Even though I already have three different little tables in my house I don't think I would have the will power to pass up a good, solid, beautiful console table... like this one...
Kasey at The Little Brick House scored this sturdy cabinet/console table at goodwill for $20! It definitely needed a little updating, so she chose to paint it a gorgeous, happy and bright yellow color.

so pretty. (p.s. I might come steal this when you're not looking.)

Goodwill Dresser + Pearly White Paint

Isn't this elegant chest of drawers pretty? It has curves in all the right places. Just lovely. Erika snatched it up at her local goodwill and gave it a pretty makeover with our good old friend: white paint. 

...distressed in all the right places. perfect. This was her first try at distressing and she did a great job!
