Before & Afters

We are in the middle of a total kitchen makeover. Here are a few things I've done in the process.


Before: A plain off-white bar stool (one of two) I picked up at a garage sale last summer.
After: Bright red that looks awesome with the new paint we just put on the kitchen walls (not shown in this picture).

Before: A $3.75 garage sale find from 2 weeks ago. I picked up 4 of these and passed one over to my friend, Kristen. She already had one ladder back chair from a garage sale that she painted black (note: she paid $4.00 for hers).


After: A little black paint and it's a perfect addition to our kitchen project.



We are getting very close to being finished with the kitchen. The banquette looks so beautiful...another fabulous job by Eddie. Once I finish glazing it, I'll post pictures of the finished product!

Wow! Those are some very nice garage sale finds and now they look fantastic sporting their new paint.
It looks like your kitchen project is going to be wonderful when it's finished. I like the banquette. I'm looking forward to the reveal.
Thanks for joining in on the fun.

Both were great finds! You're such a great yard-saler! And I love your paint guts! Does that make sense? Anyway, congrats on posting to a carnival! Glad I'm the first to comment!
