Best of 2012...

Yes I'm jumping on the bandwagon to review my last years adventures in paint. Admittedly I only have half a year to choose from as I didn't start this until June. It may be brief...

 Before: Gold plastic picture frame

After...
Ta-daa!

Before...

After... ( a long time after!)

and why not?




Before: Every door in the house was like this! And the walls were green too. And the carpets!

After: A little more traditional without the expense of replacing every door!


Before...

After... (but before the braid that finished it off)


Before: tangoed

After some F&B lovin'



Before

After



Before

After



Before

After

Close up



Before

After



Before: Horrendous!

Wait! Bring back the carpet!

After. Well worth the wait!

My favourite decoration


But my finest moment of 2012?


Has to be this one.


Wehey!

Happy New Year Folks!x

  1. Those are some great makeovers - you're good at this! The doors, the stool and the little cabinets are all fabulous. And I will pinch that idea with the printers tray for next Christmas, if that's OK with you... It will probably take me all year to get round to tarting it up a bit!
    Happy new year to you, I'm pleased to have discovered your blog! xxxx

    1. Thank you Curtise! I'm pleased to have found yours through Vintage Vixen. I love to see what you all wear and find which is funny because I wear jeans and jumpers every day! ;) xxxx

  2. I agree with Curtise, there have been some amazing makeovers and I bet even more to come. The doors look amazing and the effect on the gold plastic mirror is so clever. I might be emailing you for help and advice on some projects :)

    Happy new year to all xx
