{ makeover monday: diy love }

I'm all about DIY makeovers these days. Frankly, it's the only type of makeover that currently fits the budget and I find it oh-so rewarding to tackle and complete a project on my own, which is why I was instantly smitten with Kasey's recent DIY project. Her approach to this piece was so fun & clever, I couldn't resist sharing it with you on Makeover Monday.


The original piece was given to her by a friend. It was not painted and the two side doors were in poor condition. Kasey started by repainting the piece in a swedish gray. 

 

She then replaced the knobs with some from her shop and found two colorful kitchen towels from Anthropologie, which she used to create no-sew curtains that replaced the two worn doors--such a clever and creative girl!

The result? Wow!

Full details and more photos of the makeover are available on Kasey's lovely blog, Lola B's.

Did you all have a lovely first weekend of Spring? Hope so! 

P.S. Last week's giveaway winner will be announced later this afternoon.

I LOVE Kasey's work - and this one is TOPS in my book - she's got such a great way about her! She completely inspires me - and because of your post - I'm completely motivated to redo that 'old dresser' that is collecting spider webs in my garage. THANK YOU! HAPPY SPRING!
