From Gross to Gorgeous Chair Makeover

Sara of Major Hoff Takes a Wife was smitten the moment she saw Ballard’s Casa Florentina Collection. She says, “The brush strokes, the depth of colors, the glazing, oh my! Then I saw the price! Double oh my!!!!” While Sara might not be able to have the exact $449 armchair she was drooling over, that didn’t mean she couldn’t have a chair with a similar look. She snatched up a wood chair a friend was selling for $20. It was desperately in need of a little TLC, and Sara was happy to oblige with a fresh coat of paint, secret waxing technique, and new upholstery. Isn’t she a beaut now?

Wal-mart Kitchen Mat Makeover

Doreen from Hymns and Verses fell in love with a pretty and functional kitchen mat from Ballard that features a measurement conversion chart. What she didn’t love was the price of$75. Doreen instead decided to try her hand at making her own with a similarly-shaped comfort mat from Wal-mart and a chalk marker. Doreen designed the chart on the computer and then used a nifty transfer method to trace it onto the mat. The final cost of Doreen’s mat was under $15 instead of the more pricey original!
