we’ve got a PACKED before & after day today so i wanted to kick things off bright and early with emily’s credenza makeover. emily, an art teacher and designer in denver, received this old credenza from her parents’ house and decided to give it a “lighter, cleaner” feel with some new paint, a bold purple interior and 60’s-inspired fabric curtains to match the mid-century form. emily loves the new look how it changes the pieces from “an eye sore to eye candy”. thanks for sharing, emily!

this next before & after comes from RJ in the philippines. inspired by the before & afters from d*s readers, RJ decided to makeover this vintage frame and painting. finding the painting itself to be too gaudy, RJ turned the frame into a useful bulletin board for the office. a sheet of cork was added to the frame (where the painting used to be) and was covered with a piece of black pinstriped cotton RJ had laying around in the back of a closet. the frame was repainted, the pieces were assembled and voila! a brand new bulletin board. great work, RJ!
