Before and After

This summer before we moved into our house, I was on a mission to find furniture that we could furnish our house with. However, I wanted to keep the cost down. Thank goodness Moscow has such great Yard Sales ( Seriously though, better than back at home by far!). I was able to find several things for our home for a very thrifty price.

Small Side table before

Small Side table after I painted it and my neighbor, (who very generously) rebuilt the top of it.

Before... Behind the couch buffet table
( I know, this one was really ugly before)

After: Turned out great with a little bit of elbow grease and some paint!

And here are a few others that I have done. I don't know where the before pics went, but I love the way they turned out. Its amazing the potential that all these things have that someone considered junk.

The Bench I re-stained and recovered.
And the White things... well I repainted them and added the greenery and whatever else you see!

Only 4 more months before yard sale season is underway! Can't wait to see what other treasure I will find!

These are amazing! I've always wanted to try refinishing things but now I'm truly inspired!
