Stacy found this weathered wooden arch for only $5. Take a look at the Before:

Stacy scored this great architectural find for $5 at a neighborhood yard sale...

After sanding, she used Varathane stain and poly in the Kona shade.  This is a great example of how some tender loving care can make a piece pop--wow!

Look at the transformation after she sanded and re-stained--impressive!

Alma inherited this French Provincial piece but it was yellowed and dated prior to her inspired upcycle. She used Valspar "Pretty in Pink" satin, added fresh striped wallpaper and painted the trim and drawer handle classic white to transform what was previously drab to a vision of loveliness!

Alma's finished result is Pretty in Pink!

I gave my latest find a drybrushed, creamy white makeover to compliment the rest of my decor.  I am loving its dramatic contrast against my luxe turquoise wall--never underestimate the power of a little paint!
