Where’s the beef?

Where’s the beef?
I’m not confused!  This really is the before. And no, Karianne’s big dining room makeover was not taking down the Christmas decorations.  Look closer … do you see it?   I’ll give you a hint: beefy window mouldings!  I guess that was more than a hint.  But yes, doesn’t it make SUCH a dramatic change?  Now when you look back at the before, I bet you are all like, “Woah, those windows totally need beefier mouldings.”  And here’s the best part, it cost a grand total of $22!  I know.  I’m off to Home Depot right now too.

    I know I can’t be the only one to wish that her room looked as good as the before-but you’re right, the after is even better!

    What?! That’s fabulous! And for $22? I never would have thought of that.

    Saw it right away! What a great change Looks much more open and airy especially with the lighter weight drapes. Extending the window molding is not something that would have ever occurred to me, but what a great idea!

    I can’t believe she did that for just $22 bucks. So stealing her idea for my next house!
