before and after

before & after: veronica’s night table + jason’s barcart

by Grace Bonney

this first before & after comes from artist veronica diago. she enjoys diy projects and decided to apply her handiwork to a project for her son. she picked up an old night table from a garage sale and transformed it into a cool modern table- complete with airplane detailing for her son’s “obsession”. veronica’s little boy is one lucky duck. great work!


CLICK HERE for jason’s bar cart makeover after the jump!

this bar cart makeover comes from design director, jason caldeira. jason came across an old, rusted bar cart in his back alley that had “too much potential to pass up”. he’d never done any sort of restoration project in the past, but decided to give it a shot.

jason cleaned and sanded the cart down, spray-painted it white (the only color he happened to have on hand) and covered it in snow & graham paper for the tray surface. and voila! a new bar cart ready for cocktail hour. great work, jason!
