~BEFORE & AFTER~

 Hi there friends...
There's a lot of changes going on in our master bedroom that I will be showing you all soon...just waiting on two more things to arrive.
I wanted a bench for the foot of our bed and ordered this one from Plow & Hearth knowing it was going to get painted.
~~~
Are you ready for another before & after...
 Here's the before...a factory finished maple.
 And here's the after...a soft...worn...white finish...much better!
I borrowed this fern from our front stoop for the photo ;-)
 One more before...
 And After...

 Stay tuned for the master bedroom reveal!
