lipstick and pigs

Did you read the latest issue of House of Fifty yet?  It's great, maybe my favorite one yet- but then I say that about all the newest magazines.

Anywoo, my friend Danika's bathroom was featured, along with her awesome company O'verlays.  Seriously these things are the best invention since sliced bread.  I even used them on one of my own projects that you can see here.

Back to the point- just look at this before and after

before... 1960's dated yellow loveliness

After... hello lover!!
Paint and a little elbow grease seriously can do it all people!

Her bathroom makes me think I could give my rental bathroom a makeover.  The pepto pink tiles are just itching for a makeover too.  Check out more awesome projects and O'verlay stuff on her blog Gorgeous Shiny Things. 

Have a good weekend everyone!

I had to go back and forth between the two pictures to make sure my eyes weren't deceiving me. I couldn't believe that's the same bathroom! Way to go Danika!

Great blog..what a fantastic cabinet makeover. I just found you via a link from an Australian blog, Table Tonic. So, I was so surprised to see that you are in Boston too. Looking forward to reading more. ;)

It is indeed a great issue- I loved it too; and I thought of "you" when I saw that overlay article as your blog was the first place I read about the brilliant concept!

Hope you are both well!!

O'verlays are amazing, they really transform a piece of furniture or a whole room!
