BRICK EYESORE TO BEADBOARD BEAUTY

 The Decor Chick is hosting a Molding Linky Party today & I thought it would be fun to link up my "Entry Table" makeover!


 When we bought our home, THIS was the 1st thing everyone saw!
This brick planter, complete with green styrofoam sitting in the top & a brown paneled bookshelf on the back.  

The pebble tech floor & the blue & beige wallpaper didn't help, but don't worry we changed that too! :)
 But look what you can do with a little BEADBOARD!!!
I asked my brother to "wrap the brick" in beadboard & lay a piece of wood OVER the sunken planter & turn this into a TABLE! I left the bookshelf as is, but painted the brown paneling white & now it is the perfect spot for books & cute decor!
 Now when you walk in THIS is what you see & you wouldn't believe the compliments I get on it!
If only people knew what was hiding underneath...
 Here is what it looks like TODAY...
but it changes on a REGULAR basis! I love changing out my HOLIDAY DECOR, so when people come over they are welcomed with a bit of HOLIDAY CHEER!:)



Now, go link up your Molding Projects!!!
