Dear Mo, what a great post!! Thanks to you, I'm now thinking of recovering my sofa. I've got so many great ideas from this visit. You have so much imagination; my son says to me. 'Mum, you're not very girly, are you.' That made me think for a moment then I replied, 'Not very, no'. It's a work in progress, lol.

What a wonderful post, Mo! I LOVE all your makeovers. Especially those Vict. overmantles. I've got a couple of those, too. And I sell lots of them. The tins you added to the living room one are a stroke of genius! That little bench in the last pic is just adorable, too!

Big TX Hugs,

I don't know which project is my favorite, I really like them all. I've tried to redo something, but it sure doesn't turn out like yours. You just have the knack.
I enjoyed seeing everything you had pictured, thanks so much for sharing with us.

Your make over projects are so pretty. Some of them I remember and some I was seeing for the first time. It was fun to look through the pictures. Thanks for sharing!

Wow! These are super amazing - so very beautiful - those mantels! I'm really amazed though at the redo of that ugly old floor lamp - so surprising - great makeover on that.

If you have a follower thingy, I am going to sign up...

Astoundingly beautiful!!! Would you tell more about that first table? The tiling and the re-do are just exquisite, and I'd like to see a better view or hear what you did to make things appear to float like that?

I could live my life in pink rose petals and white lace, and a lot of it, I do through your beautiful talents.

Thank you.

Interesting article you got here. I'd like to read something more concerning this topic.
BTW look at the design I've made myself A level escort

Your makeovers are amazing!! I am always so impressed by people who have the vision to see the potential in an old castoff and transform it into something lovely and useful. What you did with the bench was just so creative!! Could you tell me what that polka dot paper around the topiary is - the ruffle it makes is so cute, I've never seen paper like that before?
