before and after

before & after: kc and sara’s table (and wedding!)

by Grace Bonney

newlyweds kc and sara giessen refurbished this donated dining table in such a fun and playful way i couldn’t resist sharing. they took a standard wooden table, the kind i remember growing up with in so many different houses, and painted on this fun plate and silverware pattern. i love simple projects like this where the end result is something so clever and whimsical. thanks to kc and sara for sharing!
