New Year's Resolution

I'm not one to make much of New Year's resolutions.  Perhaps it's because I never manage to see them through.  But this year is different.  This one I think I can do!  My new year's resolution is to take "before" pictures before I start paining!  Sounds do-able, don't you think?  

This buffet is actually in my office at school.

This little table was a dumpster find.  It takes a LOT of tape to create these diamonds!

This library table began life as a white pine import from Mexico.  Much better now, huh?

Here's a cute little chest in French gray and white.

How 'bout a coffee table?  This one is still available!

I just finished this little desk today!  Love the black and white!

It's just hard to appreciate how far these have come without seeing their humble beginnings.  So this year, I'm going to take "before" shots!  I think I can...I think I can...

I think you can keep this resolution! And it really helps to appreciate the transformation when there is a before picture. Now go grab your camera!
