It’s been so fun getting back into the swing of Before & Afters after taking a little break. I feel prepared to tackle my own projects now (we’ll be doing makeovers as a team in the office, so stay tuned!), and nothing inspires me like seeing the amazing makeovers you guys are doing. This sunny chair make-under and over comes from Pilar in Catalonia. She loves before and after projects and decided to tackle an old wooden chair she had at home. What I love about this project is that she did a little bit of both — she stripped the wood down to its natural color and added painted details, as well. I think the combination feels fresh and sort of vintage at the same time, a look I always welcome. A big high five to Pilar for a job well done and for sharing this with us! xo, grace
