before and after

before & after: theresa’s projects

by Grace Bonney

these before & after projects come from san francisco-based author and crafter, theresa gonzalez. theresa has a great book, ‘dorm decor‘, coming out in may, but in the meantime she’s sharing these fun furniture makeover projects with us. i love the playful cake stand- it makes me want to spray paint all of my plain surfaces with a colorful doily pattern. thanks to theresa for sharing!

[have a before & after makeover you’d like to share on d*s? just shoot me an email right here with your pictures!]
