this next before & after really caught my eye for some reason. i really love when people subtly modify something in a way that makes me see a piece in a completely different light- especially if i would have walked right by it before. this george washington frame makeover comes from tyler goodro at plastolux. tyler explained, “i stopped by a antique store the other day not really expecting to find much in my flavor. as I rounded a corner there he was giving me this smirk, and i ignored him. needless to say two days later I went back and took this 60’s 70’s print of george washington home, frame and all for $25. i busted out the acrylics and a paint brush and went to town on the frame. i also replaced the plexi with glass, now it is a little more my flavor – modern!” i really love the way the frame mimics the print itself- and it really does change the feel for me. well done, tyler!

CLICK HERE for samantha’s chair makeover after the jump!
this next project is artist samantha french‘s first ever upholstery project! samantha’s chair was stripped, cleaned, sanded (she even bought a sander to use on future projects!) and recovered with a lovely charcoal colored geometric print from duralee. i love the little nail-head detailing, the new piece is so sweet and fresh. great job, samantha!
