I think one of the things I find the most rewarding about designing and decorating is visiting the thrift store and finding a sad, inexpensive piece of furniture with good bones that just needs a little love. I've always been able to instantly look at a piece and envision what it could be. I truly enjoy that. I also enjoy gaining inspiration from others and their finds and redos so I thought it would be a lot of fun to start a monthly series featuring thrift store before and afters from our readers.
Beginning in October, I will choose a reader redo to feature a couple of times a month, maybe more, depending on time. I want you to send me your before and after photos of thrift store or garage sale finds that you've reinvented or repurposed and I will choose a couple (or more) to feature here on the blog a month. You don't have to have a blog to do this, anyone can send them in. Just provide me with a couple of photos of your piece and a detailed description of what you did to redo it, including whatever products (paint, sandpaper, etc) you used, as well as, your name.
Photos and info can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please put Reader Redo in the subject line.

I think this will be a lot of fun! It's my version of a linky party (which I have no idea how to do) but a little more personal. I'm looking forward to featuring your project!
Hope to see lots of redos in our inbox!
Did anyone work on a redo this past weekend? I'd love to hear about it in the comments section!
Enjoy your day,
