Apartment 216 – Before & After Recap!

August 27, 2010 at 12:01 pm Leave a comment

So I have to start this post by saying thank you to my mom for the opportunity to do this fun project, and to all of the people who helped me along the way… especially my friend Eddie who was doing some serious last-minute manual labor on the big reveal day. Let’s have a look back at the space before:

So now lets get to the good stuff!  Here’s a look at the before and after’s of the furniture elements:

Before: Couch & Loveseat Combo – $150.00 from Craigslist

After: A more modern update with accent pillows

Before: 1970s Media Stand – $10.00 @ Habitat for Humanity Restore

After: A chic aqua blue media stand

Before: Yellow Parsons Chair – $10.00 @ Habitat for Humanity Restore

After: Zebra Print Desk Chair

Before: A gifted floral settee

After: A romantic fuchsia and houndstooth dog bed

Antique Dresser – $40.00 from Craigslist

A soft Tiffany blue and updated drawer pulls give this old dresser a soft romantic feel.

So those are all the updated pieces.  There were also some really cool new pieces added to the room and although I didn’t get to finish all of my objectives for the space, I’m happy with the overall results.  Here’s a look at the final after photos… Enjoy!

Have a great weekend!  Live Creatively!
