Mini makeovers

I love a quick pick me up make over which takes not too long, but has a nice impact, leaving you feeling accomplished and ready for more...
I had for a while contemplated to paint these small rattan tables white and now it finally happened.

In our family room before...

They are useful in our family room, holding a tray with our fish and a small loud speaker. Doesn't it look so much better?

And a mini re-do in our basement, a major hangout for the teens and occasional sleepover spot for friends and family...
Before a big mess...

And now...ready for the arrival of my oldest and his girl!

Cost for both: two spray cans, elbow grease and the new sofa ($399), two tables ($14)and carpets ($80)from IKEA. It has now a capacity to sleep 4 easily and six with an additional air mattress...

My next project is already waiting for me!


Pictures by me.


  1. It all looks great, and I'm sure your family will appreciate it!

  2. Wow looks great...! I love what a difference a little can of paint can do!

  3. I am impressed! I guess your back was all back to normal...or maybe after all that...hmmm! Look forward to meeting your house guests, aka family!:)

  4. hurray for spray paint! i love how quickly and easily a piece of furniture can change! and then change the room!

  5. Thanks, guys!
    PVE: Indeed, much better, almost back to normal... little aching here and there, but I choose to ignore that....:)

  6. Glad to hear a you are "back" to normal.
    You are a magician...with a blink of eye you have created a fresh new space. What do the fish
    think of the mini redo.

  7. WOW! What a great makeover! The side table looks fantastic, and the room looks great for a couple to stay in!!
