More before and after

I love looking at before and after images. I cruise the web looking for them because I find them so inspiring. Every now and then I see a Better Before and wonder what were they thinking? When I was compiling images for this post I ran across my OWN Better Before, which I'm not going to show you. :-) I'm going to repaint it and maybe we will have a Before-After-Way After post. Meanwhile here are some befores and afters that don't embarrass me.

Telephone bench done with Red Pepper Milk Paint and chalkboard paint.

I didn't realize this little bench had once been upholstered when I found it.
The fabric is a vintage Calla Lilly tea towel.


Before-after piano bench - commission piece

My art deco bench painted with graphite Chalk Paint, with French Script fabric.

Another Union Jack! This one was upholstered with a wall hanging from Urban Outfitters 
and painted with Milk Paint.

Next, I'll show you my AFTER chair. Sooooo frustrated I forgot to take before pictures.
