today’s first before & after comes from d*s readers krist + travis. they found this “pile of sticks” on roadside garbage night and thought there was something of promise waiting to be created. a lot of love and a little bit of elbow grease and the pile of sticks has turned into a lovely new gingerbread chair. great work you two!

next up is a dresser makeover from abbey at aesthetic outburst. this dresser belonged to abbey’s mom when she was little and had been stored in a barn for a long time. so abbey and her husband took it upon themselves to refinish it. she picked out the dark navy paint (valspar’s corduroy black- her favorite color this year) and he did all of the ‘dirty work’, including sanding it down, repainting, and polishing the drawer pulls with a wire brush. now it has a beautiful new home in their daughter’s room. thanks for sharing, abbey!
