Thrifty make-overs for "The Big City Apartment"

Today I am sharing a few of the fabulous transformations of the thrifted and hand me down pieces that Therese rounded up for her son's "Big City Apartment."
She did such a great job, some of these pieces we collaborated on and others, she just did on her own and shared the results with me. 
I have said it before, but we really do make a good team....
High fives for "The Committee!"

A garage sale bulletin board gets some pizazz with a black frame and painted stripes.

Since the fabric was in decent condition and the color worked perfectly, this cute little chair got a fresh look by removing the skirt, cleaning up the legs and adding a hip Therese Marie Designs pillow.
 

 Only the tiniest bit of paint and a little creative genius and this chest gets a simple update.


Inspired by this, a thrift store painting, a thought, stick on letters and a wash of paint yields
a conversation piece in the powder room.

A little spray paint and some dark wax gave this side table a hip new look.


A funky vintage lamp, so cool it doesn't need more than a good cleaning....
 

 And how about a little sneak peak to see the lamp in use 
and how the "Sting" poster makes an appearance..... 

Yep, that's the Ikea Karlstad, a Lack side table and a couple of TMD pillows.
Lookin' pretty darned good dontcha think???!!!!

Have a great week-end!

BTW I am linking up to the Best of the Nest party and you should too.... no doubt you have some cool project to share, so be brave and do it!

So much creativity in this cool pad! That smallest detail - the dresser knobs - have me rethinking my day so I can pick up some paint and do that to my son's dresser! So cool and interesting. Also the Well, Damn art - awesome!!!!!!!! Thanks so much for sharing, Cathy, you and Therese make an amazing committee!

So awesome!! I thought my favorite thing was the chairs (they are really cool especially w/ the stylish pillow included) but that artwork for the bathroom is so great - total winner there. It's going to be the talk of the town. Three cheers for #thecommittee - this deserves its own home tour at some point. Apartment Therapy here you come!!

This is shaping up to be such a hip place, and your simple, inexpensive tweaks have made a huge impact! Removing the skirt was so smart, and that bathroom art idea I want to steal!! Way to go you two, thanks for sharing at Best of the Nest!
