From one of my fav blogs to visit thedecorista.com
Here’s a table she found (along with her cute doggie) & after paint, wallpaper & glass, this is what she transformed it into.
How cool is this?
Look how…….dreadful this is……
Now look at it!!!!! It looks great. I love how she did the “piping” on the dresser to really make it stand out.

A nice foyer table to greet you.
Now this one is funny because I stumbled on this blog literally the day after I took home the exact same table. No lie. My parents have had one like this in their kitchen for a decade & all this time I never gave it any thought. Then one day as I stared in the kitchen’s entry it dawned on me…..’Miya…(my name)…DUHHHHH!!!!!!! this matches my BEDROOM DECOR’. Literally that’s what I thought. I have a Moroccan theme in my bedroom and this styled table is very prevalent in their culture. So I proceed to steal it…well…I asked my parents if I could have it. They obliged & my dad was even nice enough to paint it from white to black. So when saw this on her site & it was a recent post, I laughed at the co-ink-key-dink-ness of it all.
I think she did a wonderful job & I especially like the way she accessorize.
How fabulous? I’ve said time & time again my fav color is black. I love black furniture. Combined with contemporary hardware & this looks like a completely different dresser.
Dusty looking stairs….
Now the stairs look clean & updated. Simply staining the wood a darker color & painting the risers does wonders. It really compliments the molding well. So before tossing something away or passing up something at a rummage (garage) sale, try thinking how it would look if a little extra attention was paid to it. You may very well have your own gem.
