Hello all! How was your weekend? We got our beast of a tree decorated and I am so excited to have that done!! I’m pretty much done with the Christmas decor…says the girl who will keep messing with stuff for another two weeks. :)

Anyway, today we are kicking off the last Before and After Party of 2012! There were so many great projects last month, but so many that caught my eye were furniture redos.

Danielle took a little table garage sale table and transformed her with paint:

I call it “her” cause of her pretty long legs…with pink at the ends! Love this! :)

Julie found this awesome trunk (found it!!) and took it home for a little union jack magic:

What a perfect coffee table! Tons of storage in that baby!

I was so impressed with Anne’s bedside table redo, but you have to see the before to really appreciate it’s industrial makeover:

I love how her mind works – I would never have thought it could look so different!

Cristina’s dresser looks like a fairly straightforward (and beautiful!) paint job at first:

But check out her post to see how she changed it up! Brilliant!

Liz needed a kitchen island but couldn’t find one that was the right size. So they found a sofa table and transformed it:

Awesome!! It looks so custom. And whooee, check out that gorgeous kitchen too!

I LOVE projects like these – changing up a piece to make it work for YOUR needs. Most of these were transformed with just paint and a little time.

Now it’s time to see what you’ve been up to – please make sure you only link up posts with your projects/home. Also, if you’d like to be considered for a future recap, include this button or a link in your post:
