Before & Afters You Won’t Believe!

Have I got a treat for you today!

Cassie from Primitive & Proper is crashing my blog to share some of her

fabulous furniture makeovers!

That girl has style I tell you.

So without further ado, here’s Cassie …

Hi all! Β I am Cassie from Primitive and Proper and I am so excited to be here at Eclectically Vintage!

I share a love of well, eclectic and vintage with Kelly!

I adore her sense of humor as well as her sense of style and feel like a blogebrity since I get to post on her blog today!

My blog is mainly about decor and furniture revamps….

I love upcycling anything from thrifted junk to furniture to rooms in my houseπŸ˜‰

I host a weekly link party that is for furniture redos only, so if you love making over furniture pieces, then I would love to see you there!

I am always hunting and gathering and sanding and painting… it’s party hobby, part business, part passion, all me.

Since furniture is a specialty for me, I thought I would share with you some of my more recent eclectic and vintage makeovers.

Today, you will get my top 5 favorites from the last 6 months.

I hope you enjoy! Β And here they are, in random order, drumroll please….

This first dresser is now in my master bedroom, which will hopefully get its makeover this summer, but heck, who knows!?)

I found it on craigslist and though I was not planning to replace the dresser I had, I fell in lurve with thisΒ asian inspired dresser.

I had better get to work on that room so I can show you it in place rather than in my driveway.

Here it is before:

And after:

The dresser it replaced was also a recent favorite.

It was a white sleek midcentury dresser I adored, but since I gave it the boot, I decided to give it a makeover as well.

Here it is before:

And after:

Another favorite is this round table that I found at Goodwill. Β I adored its shape and went with a restoration hardware inspired look.

Here is the table before:

And after:

Often favorites are the pieces I keep for myself. πŸ™‚

I loved this desk and it was a perfect fit for our living room and a great opportunity for me to add color.

Here is the before:

And finally one more to share with you today!

I am always a sucker for French sideboards, so of course I snatched this one up from my local thrift shop!

Here is the before:

And after:

Thanks for letting me crash Kelly’s blog today!

I do share the colors and finishes on my blog, so just click on the links before the pictures if you are curious about any of it.

And I hope you will hop over and see me sometime, maybe share your furniture makeover, or a bottle of wine???? Β Any takers?

Kelly, thank you so much for sharing your friends with me today!
