White Wicker

White Wicker
I’m back! From where, I don’t know, because our spring break was totally lame. I did give my son’s bedroom a pretty major makeover, but guess what? I forgot to take before and after pictures. It’s true! Someday I’ll figure out how to screw my head on straight. Maybe. 
 Well, I hope you had a good week! And I’m so excited about the new advertisers that have signed on to sponsor Better After! I will be introducing them throughout the week, so yay for that! 
 Also, I just got a couple of the sweetest comments from one Shane’s Angie, but she didn’t leave a way to contact her, so shout out to you Shane’s Angie! Thanks for making my day a whole heckuva lot nicer! 
 OK, on to the goods: Andrea from Andrea’s Attic found these chairs on Craigslist for $50. Yikes! She must have seen their hidden potential, because I would have run the other way. Sure enough, they look awesome with a fresh coat of paint and new cushions. I also love the personalized Mr. & Mrs. pillows! Check out her blog: Andrea’s Attic, especially if you are considering painting wicker, as she offers some great tips. Tips that would have come in handy back when I was painting a wicker piece of my own and burned through about 20 cans of spray paint.

    Okay. Those Mr. and Mrs. pillows are awesome! We just framed out our front porch and have been waiting for the perfect chairs to put out there. I just love this stuff. So much character!
