STUNNING


BEFORE...


AFTER...


After seeing Rachel's bathroom redo on Design Sponge I must say I became quite enthralled with many of her home projects she features on Southern Exposure. She has a background in interior design but is a stay at home mom currently. I suppose that explains her amazing eye for detail. This before and after stopped me in my tracks. The glossy black is stunning, but adding the green and white stripes takes it to a whole new level. Completely stunning. See more of this gorgeous transformation here. Oh, how I would love to recreate this look.

You're right - the armoire is terrific but the detail that sets it apart is the striped back. Very cool! Marija

I am a big fan of black and a huge fan of stripes. Especially green and white! I am in love with this transformation! So glad I got to see it.

Lining the piece with the green and white stripes takes it from nice to "Wow!" She could easily switch out the lining for a different color/pattern to change the look too.

I love the redo as well. It is crazy how just a new coat of paint can give new life to furniture.
