A Happy Before & After

I had been debating for a LONG time what I would most like to do with this huge frame. There are so many options...

But  I finally decided and I am so flippin excited over how it turned out!

BAM!!

Is that not the most delicious color of red?! Ahh I am in love with it.  It's a magnetic chalkboard,  but I have not written on it yet because I can't stop loving the gorgeous black just by itself.   =)

.....................................

When I found this hutch it looked like this:

Yucky mesh-like metal in the doors.  I think the look they may have been going for was the chicken wire look... but yeah no.

So I took it home and gave it some love with new glass cut for the doors and...


VOILA!!
 


Isn't that feeling of getting something out of your heart and mind and out into the open, a wonderful feeling? 

I love that feeling.
