i’m in love this with makeover from miriam of madmim. she and her husband were getting married and trying to scrounge up furniture, so they decided to go with these two $10 pieces from a college apt sale. the “cheap laminate wood” wasn’t doing much for miriam and, as she put it, “planned on replacing them ASAP, but ASAP turned into As Soon As I-get-around-to-it, and then…IDRSMOMIT (I’d Rather Spend Money On More Important Things).” using a stencil from ed roth’s stencil 101 decor and a few coats of poly for durability, miriam created her own custom pattern that, to me, looks remarkably like inlay from afar. i love the color she chose and think it works perfectly with these pieces. miriam explained, “i wouldn’t do this to a solid wood piece of furniture, but i don’t feel any remorse for painting veneer”. and what a great paint job it was. well done, miriam!

next up is d*s reader jasmine, who decided to remake a mission-style entry table she found in a local shop. with a black, white and red theme in mind, jasmine repainted her table with a black and white pattern and redid her entryway in bold black and white stripes. i love the pops of red (especially the chandelier) in the room- and it looks her puppy peanut approves of the new look, too. thanks for sharing, jasmine!
