Better Afters

I love D.I.!!! It's definitely hit or miss but I have had some amazing finds!

Before... $25 for both
After... Chair for my bedroom!
After... Chair for the entryway

Before... $2
After... Now my perfume tray!
Before... $15
After... End table
Before... $10

After... My new headboard!

Before... $10
After... End table!
I don't have a before, but this was only $2 at a yard sale!
These were here when we moved in... no before pic, but they had ugly brown wood and yucky maroon covering
$15 on craigslist for both... not bad before but how adorable are they now?!
Dresser from Brian's mom... boring brown before
Nightstand from Brian's grandparents... again, boring brown before :)
And my favorite find so far! Before... $15

After... Entertainment center!
Love the detailing!
I spray painted everything, very easy! Spray paint is $3 a bottle at Wal Mart and there's this sweet spray paint for hardware there too! I Mod Podged fabric scraps onto the perfume tray and colorful chairs, and it was suprisingly easy to cover the stools and the green and blue chairs.... staple guns are magical! And best of all, I'm able to furnish my house on a budget! (Brian likes that part :) Check out "Better After" and "Classy Clutter" for great tips on re-doing furniture... Be careful though, it's addicting!!!


We were able to go to Texas in June for my mommy's wedding... unfortunately Craig (groom to be) "broke his belly" and was in the hospital the whole time :( So no wedding while we were there, but they did get married shortly after, as soon as he was better! We still had a good time (prob not Craig) shopping, going to the pool, and going to this sweet restaurant with live music and dancing!
Bre and Mommy
Chandler, Kauner, Sar, and Bre
And it wouldn't be a trip to Texas without a visit to Buffalo Wild Wings... Brian's favorite!

We luhhhh Tejas!

Happy Birthday Asha!!!

My little puppy turned 1 today! Her favorite things to do are play fetch and eat pens! Ha ha she's a crazy dog but we love her!
When we first got her she would climb on Brian's shoulders every time we drove somewhere
And she has a really hard time keeping her eyes open for pictures... ha ha I couldn't find a better one than this!

Happy Birthday Asha!
