Before and After (plus a feature!!)

If you missed seeing it before, check out my kitchen renovation featured at Better After.  Matter of fact, even if you’ve seen it before, go look again because there are tons of great before and and afters all over this blog!  Thanks for the feature, Lindsey!  If you’d like to see more photos of my kitchen “upgrade”, click here. 


I have a double feature of “Before and After” today!


 Remember that scary owl lamp I bought a few weeks ago?

Well I’m done!

I love gloss, and this lamp definitely has it!  For those of you who have commented and/or emailed, the lamp will be headed to my Etsy shop, so feel free to make it yours!  I’ll be adding new items to the store before the end of the week, and I’ll post here as soon as they’re up.  Walk, don’t run to Vintage Styled Home!

And now for my coffee table . . .   
Here’s the before shot (you can find the rest of the story here).

Check the big reveal!


I love the way it turned out, and it’s now available for purchase!  If you’d love to take this table home and live in the Metro Atlanta area, please send me an email for more details.

Hope you love them both as much as I do . .  .

    Oh my goodness! The OWL is beaUtifUl! You would have never guessed it looked like it did in the b4 photo! Whoa…
    The table looks BRAND NEW! I mean right from the manufact. co to the showroom floor.
    U did an amazing job on both. Have you thought about selling at some of the Flea Mkts in the ATL? I am sure you would make a killn’ by selling your things.

    Yeah that lamp did a 180! But we wouldn’t expect any less from you. The table looks completely updated and fresh too. Back to the lamps, wow!

    Congrats on your feature! Yay you! And the befores and afters are great…although the owl still scares me a bit. Owls are so big right now that baby will sell in no time.

    White owls are definitely not as scary 🙂 Love it! I am a little addicted to the white gloss spray paint lately.

    Hey, I have a coffee table that I think would benefit from this treatment. How do I paint it white and make it look like it always was that way. You know? Glossy and white.
