improved before and after


nothing like taking a picture and posting it and then thinking..."i don't like it."

so i did a little moving around and this is what i ended up with. granted i simplified and used what i had so when i get a chance i will get a slightly bigger frame and with a picture of all the kids in it.
NOW, this is my after.

After seeing your "before" photo of the shelf, I LOVE the paint change on the shelf. It went from being "country" and "primitive" to being fresh, and young with a modern twist. LOVE it.

CitricSugar said...

The first one wasn't bad but this version is so classy - understated - clean.

Love it!

And I have done the same thing... Sometimes "after" actually means "during" or "in progress but getting there..."

Mel said...

Very pretty. I'm not very good at vignettes, but with lovely people such as yourself, I'm learning.
Thanks.

It looks awesome!

It's beautiful and I love black furniture and trimmings. When I move things around... and I almost always don't like it. My husband rolls his eyes at me as I stare David Caruso style (my twisted body with my hand on my hip under my sportcoat and my eyes peeking out just above my 80's sunglasses) as I think and ponder - hubby says, "I suppose you think it'd fit better in a new house".
