Before and After

We’ve been working on a few projects around the house. There is something so rewarding in making a few changes to something to give it a completely different look and as an extra bonus, doing it for cheap!

Painted the frame of ever so loved Pasta Poster from bronze (yuck, so 80’s!) to black:

The dining room chandelier got a little upgrade. Removed the lamp shades, shortened the ‘candlesticks’ and put in some cool Edison bulbs.

And finally, updated some old metal chairs. Removed the seat cushions, updated the cushions with some new padding and fabric and painted the chairs in a light mint color.  Probably one of the cheapest transformations with the most bang for the buck.

Paint sure does wonders!

  1. GASP! Where did you get that pasta poster??? My grandparents had the same one in their kitchen, and I have been searching and searching for it!
