When I moved into my apartment, I was slightly dismayed by the condition of the doors and trim. I’ve simply chosen to ignore it since then, but this inspiring project from Juli has given me a burst of motivation. Like me, Juli has been uninspired by the look of her door ever since she moved into her home. Recently, she decided to tackle the project herself. With some serious elbow grease and help from glass artist Sabra Richards, Juli has turned her door into a bold statement piece. Great work, Juli! — Kate

I don’t know when exactly my home decor tastes began to swing toward antiques, but lately I can’t stop trolling for furniture with an aged, well-worn look. I would love to swap out some of my blocky pieces for something similar to this great wardrobe makeover from Becky, a self-described interior designer by day and vintage-furniture renovator by night. I really love how she deliberately sanded off some of the new cream paint to reveal the ghost shapes of the decorative wood elements. I also appreciate the detail of the solid pink drawer. She has certainly given this piece a fresh elegance, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it stays with her for years to come. Lovely work, Becky!
