Before & After

I have 2 new blogs I want to share. 
Some of you may already know about them,
but I wanted to share some of their DIY projects. 
Looking at their before & afters have made me look at furniture differently. 
It also taught me what to look for while searching CL.

**Photos below are by Holly & Sean from Life In The Fun Lane**

**Check out her Country Cabinet, I love how she placed those books - - with the pages facing out**

I now know to look for scroll legs, scalloped bottom, & sweet detail on the drawers.

Harp Chair

I love how Holly made this Sheet Music skirt for this dresser.

My favorite is this China Cabinet.

This China cabinet has scroll legs, scalloped bottom, & sweet detailing.

The next new favorite blog to read is Stories Of A House

I am definitely looking for this dresser! I love the color blue she used in this.

(When you go to her blog, you can see wonderful details of this beautiful dresser)

After reading these 2 blogs, I went out & found a dresser with details.  I can't wait to show it.
I've been begging to keep it & sell my dresser ... mom says no!
It's so hard because you find what you love, but you can't keep it. 
C'est La Vie!
