Before and Afters: DIYs

Tuesday, July 14, 2009

Ok, it's been at least 2 months since I've tackled a good DIY project (I think the home tour in April really did me in with DIY for a while!). I've done a few small things here and there since the tour, but I'm beginning to feel the itch to take on something bigger... and these before and afters I found at My Home Ideas are just feeding the fire...

Love how they used paint (one of my favorite easy fixes) but added in the mirrors... I think the mirrors just make the piece feel so much more expensive (you could even antique the mirrors if you wanted a more vintage feel).

Again, simple paint, but adding a few touches (with the help of painters tape) makes it stand out even more. Removing the extra piece at the top helps streamline this piece.

And, finally, how easy is it to reupholster a chair? This kind of fix takes a mere 10 minutes and the results are fabulous. (Love that fabric!)

For a look at some of my DIYs of the past, check out here... I may need to get to work on some new projects soon...
