A new Look.

I posted my latest obsession in decorating... and my "makeover" came back to me a little sooner than I had thought! Meet: MY NEW LOVE.

Remember her before?

Well, this is her, AFTER


Doesn't she just look a whole lot happier?? That is what I hear anyway, after people have their "procedure" done. She definitely looks like she has gotten a LIFT.

And now, she looks good at ANY angle.

And isn't that what we ALL want.

Now, when she is in a room, it really adds some UMPH!!

I even like staring at her from down the hallway... she looks so good.

Now, there is just one thing in that room that doesn't look so hot...

My $100 piano.. .and although she isn't very good looking... I still love her. But I still think she would look better with a little make-over too... How about a BUTTER YELLOW?

Check back. :)

Lookin' good! I'm hoping all of this home nesting means you're feeling happy!
Here's a link to a painted/refinished piano that my friend copied.
And here's my friend's verseion:

Have fun!

Okay, seriously? You and your chair refinishing/pillow making self are KILLING ME. You are amazing!!!! Love the shot of the chair from down the hall - totally cracked me up. You are on a roll, girly.

That chair is H.O.T!

I so wish I had that talent. My ottoman constantly needs recovering and it costs me $200 every time because I have to buy fabric AND pay someone to do it. LUcky you.

And we went to a home on our trip back East that had a bright green piano and it was the awesomest thing I've ever seen. You do it and then maybe I can do it to my $800 piano.

Leah said...

Please please tell how you did it? Did you pay someone?? How much? I really really want to know. I want to do this too.

My friend use to use this amazing illegal guy in LA to recover her garage sale finds. I wish I had him in my life.

how do you cover a chair? seriously. i have one that i found at a yard sale and i love her line and her tufted ways but i have NO IDEA how to recover her. I looked into having the inmates recover it and it would be the cheapest place but still more than i want to spend because i'm cheap. did you read a book? did someone show you? online tutorial?...help. sos.

Lindsey said...

Ladies! I appreciate that you think I have such great SKILLZ, but I had someone re-cover it for me... and... she was SUPER CHEAP! (And super fast! I just gave it to her on Friday of last week!) I have asked her to give me a lesson, but with prices like that... um.. I don't know if I will EVER to it myself! :)
