before and after

before & after: a table, lamp and dresser

by Grace Bonney

our next three before & afters are all about color upgrades. starting first with karen from darling octopus. karen upgraded her table with a fresh coat of paint and some of my favorite wallpaper on the market- julia rothman’s treet wallpaper. this would be such a fun table for a child’s room. great work, karen!

next up is a lovely lamp makeover from holly regan at livingston and porter. that glossy shade instantly made its way into my heart. i can’t resist a beautiful shiny green- it really transforms the lamp into something really glamorous and chic. great work, holly!


last but not least, d*s reader mindy’s dresser makeover! sometimes a coat of blue paint is my favorite thing for furniture- it’s not a color my mind ever really drifts to, but almost always looks incredible. thanks for sharing, mindy!
