Random stuff time! I have for you today a small collection of makeovers that don’t really fit in any category. Unless there is a category called “Awesome Stuff You Should Look At Today,” then yes, that would work. Here goes!
Shelly at 100 Things 2 Do had a cool set of old lockers. You might think “Old lockers have all kinds of character, no need to give them a makeover!” True. But sometimes old lockers also come with things like old smells, bad graffiti, and lessons in … uh … human anatomy. Ahem. Shelly painted right over all that jazz and went the extra mile with monogram decals.
I’ve seen lots of door projects, but I have yet to see a door turned into a trophy display. Until now! Annisa at A Pretty Happy Home wanted a place to show off her husband’s many awards from his races. He only recently began running and happens to be very good at it. (Maybe there’s hope for me. But probably not. Running and I don’t like each other at all).
She says, “This board makes a BIG impact in our office and talk about a conversation starter! I love that I was able to incorporate the fruits of his labor into our home’s decor in a way that makes both of us happy. Most of all, I’m proud of him for all that he’s accomplished and for truly changing his lifestyle and health. It doesn’t just impact him, but our entire family in a truly positive way.” High fives all around!
Have an old tube TV taking up space? Do you also have a dog that lays around all day? Lazy things. Why not combine the two? Shanna at Restoration Redoux did, and it’s … not exaggerating … the cutest thing I’ve seen all day. And that includes my own children. (Ok, slight exaggeration. I think my baby is pretty cute stuff).
While you recover from your cuteness attack, check out one last makeover, from Victoria at Trois Petites Filles. She has a shabby chic style that extends all they way to the appliances. I mean, really, why leave the poor fridge out of the decorating scheme? He does so much for you. She? I think this one is definitely a she. C’est magnifique!
