Redo Redo

HGTV (and probably this very blog!) would have you believe that before and afters are as easy as frozen pie. Step one: Find ugly thing. Step two: Paint. Step three: Enjoy beautiful new thing! 

Sometimes it is as easy as that and sometimes it takes a lot of work. And sometimes you may not like the results of your makeover! But don’t fret! A post-makeover makeover is all that’s in order.

That’s what Carla did when she first redid this coffee table in blue and discovered that it was too… well… blue. So, she lightened it up, distressed it a bit and added stenciled detailing across the top. Perfecto. Don’t be afraid to redo your redo! Check it out on her blog Creative and Happy. 

And dude! Check out what she did with her rarely-used bathtub! Love this idea. Find it HERE.

    ooh the 2nd redo came out much more dynamic than the first. Great job for keeping with it!

    Don’t hate me but I think I liked the “before” better! I really like the bottom part blue. I wonder about having the bottom blue and the top with the design??? A combo of the two?

    Fun makeover, it went from somewhat country to a more modern, graphic print inspired piece. Love it!

    I like the second top a lot, but I feel like the bottom needs something else.. maybe a lighter blue?
