Frumpsty Dumpsty

Hey everyone!  I kind of figured out Instagram!  This is a big deal for me.  I’m usually the last person on earth to hop on the hip train.  I usually wait until the hip train is exhaustedly lurching into the station.  While you’re at it, check out my MySpace!  Kidding.  But anyway, do you want to follow me?  I solemnly swear to never post pictures of my feet.  You can find me and all seven of my pictures under betterafterlnz.
And for your before and after viewing pleasure, get a good look at the following makeovers from Barb at Turtles and Tails.  First she streamlined a set of ottomans, which were definitely the frumpiest things that ever frumped.  But now they are sleek and even rocking one of fall’s hottest trends: corduroy!  Such fashionistas.

I also love what she did with this plain old stool.   First she painted it. Then stained it.  Then aged it.  Then freezer-paper stenciled it.  Then twined it!  That’s a whole lot of neat on such a small seat.  Oh, I’m a poet. See the stool’s saga on her blog Turtles and Tales.

  1. Freezer paper stenciling? What is this of which you speak? Sounds like super cool to me.

    Gonna go follow you and your 7 pictures on Instagram right now.

  2. Love those ottomans! That’s the best use of the “distressed” look I’ve ever seen — it looks warm, not just “beat up.”
