12+ Before...and Beautiful After

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT 12+ Beautiful Before-and-AftersOnce again, I am so impressed with the wonderful inspiration that was shared at The Scoop this week! And sprinkled in among all of the wonderful links, I found more than a dozen fabulous make-overs with amazing before-and-after photos! There are some very talented bloggers out there who are able to see potential…a beautiful project just waiting to get out! And here they are…

c06fe82250e0faa7b43e867173e252e4 I especially love this chair make-over from Biscuits and Boxwoods since it started out as a $10 thrift store find!  The plaid fabric is perfect, don’t you think?
