The winner is Kara with Creations by Kara!

We have a winner!  Kara with Creations by Kara has won the pre-made template from The Design Girl!  While there, I found a few fun photos and usually warrant a little squeal………because most of what I’m going to show you are all her before and afters.  She’s brilliant.  Even I would have walked past a few of these items in their before condition.  ent center 001 

Seriously do we not see these old computer desks EVERYWHERE?  Since she’s in Utah, she probably picked it up at the local  DI……that’s Good Will to the rest of the Nation.  I think she did a brilliant job in creating a wonderful storage area.  And it’s CUTE!

Do I even need to say anything about this piece below?  She saw the beauty…..somewhere.

Oh……hello gorgeous!  See didn’t I tell you…….she’s brilliant!

OK, I understand the need for plastic flower pots….they don’t break and they keep your plants moist longer…….but you know what?  Most are UGLY!  There I said it………hate me if you want……but they are.

But I do like a painted plastic one!  So nice looking don’t you think.  I don’t hate it anymore.

What do you get when you put together one ugly gold plate rack……..again a dime a dozen at GoodWill…….

Add a few frames you can pick up at your local WalMart.

Add a couple of antique looking keys….and what do you get?

Thanks for entering everyone!

I have to say, I just found your blog & am in LOVE. Because, I LOVE to find old crappy furniture & spice it up into something pretty. My husband is a med student so we seem to always be short on funds, so it is a great hobby for me, since it's usually pretty inexpensive. I will definitely be checking back frequently to get more inspiration!

Wow, I really love all of them. My daughter collects keys like that, so I will have to show her this idea.

Half way there....Enjoy your Wednesday !
