Leggett & Platt Pinterest Challenge

Vintage Furniture Redo – Before and After

Nothing makes me happier than a proper before and after.  I even love those diet pill commercials where people purposefully slouch in schlubby ill-fitting clothes for the ‘befores’ just so they can stand with normal posture, fake tans and makeup for the  ‘afters.’  I’m always convinced.  It simply MUST be a good product.  I mean,… Read More …
