Your Revamps

You’re Fabulous, February Edition

Sunday, February 28th, 2010

Over that past few weeks and months, some of you have sent me some really incredible makeovers.  I’m way overdue in featuring these, so today I’d like to showcase some of your absolutely fabulous creations and transformations.

“I discovered your blog after watching a ‘Designed to Sell’ episode where they did a really neat upholstered/framed headboard that I wanted to replicate. Lo and behold, I couldn’t find instructions on the HGTV website, but instead found yours and all of your amazing projects !

I feel like I found buried treasure in all of these wonderful blogs, and now have an amazing tufted headboard hanging above our new king sized bed. I have always loved decorating my house, but in finding inspiring blogs such as yours, it’s being taken to a whole new level.

Did I mention that I painted a side table and a sofa table Heirloom White the same weekend I did the headboard?”

No, You’re Fabulous

I am always so delighted to receive your links and photos of the pieces you’ve transformed.  I especially appreciate when you tell me this site has in some small way inspired you.  *blush*

Here are a few revamps that some CG Readers have emailed to me or featured on their blog. 

Sarah C. was inspired by my tree branch jewelry holder to make her own decor from a tree branch for her bedroom.  With a can of orange spray paint, she used a gum tree to create a stunning focal point over her bed.  To me, this looks like something right out of Domino.  I love it.
