Thrift Store Find "After"...

Yikes...

It's taken me longer than I planned to do a follow-up post to show you the "After" shots of my recent thrift store transformation, but my house has been in a bit of a shambles this past week on account of something that finally went from being a dream to being reality.

But before  I get to that, let's take a look back at one of my recent thrift store finds that started out as this..


And has now been transformed into this....


Nothing fancy, just some creamy white paint to brighten the piece up and make it fit better into my cottage/shabby chic decor. It now resides proudly in my craftroom which has undergone some major changes over the past few days.

And those changes will explain why my house has been in a shambles for the past several days. 

A nearly ten year long dream finally became reality on Friday when I had all new windows installed in my house.  The windows I had before were just downright gross what with the fog buildup between the window panes that left the windows always dirty looking and hard to see through..

A before shot of my living room window shows the problem very clearly.....


So at one point on Friday, these were my living room and craft room windows (or should I call them a gaping hole in the wall ?) ...



But in the end, all the upheaval was worth it as my new windows are awesome..


 
That isn't the only change that has occurred in my craftroom.  Some other change have taken place to, but I'll share more about those in my next post.

Until then, enjoy your week!!
