Featured Designer: Trisha Atkinson


Check.  this.  out:




A beautiful piece of furniture, right?

Perfect for a girl's room.

Any guesses as to what it WAS used for?


Fab before & after designer Trisha Atkinson, of TDA Interiors,
created this kid's armoire out of this: 




Do you see what it was now?


Maybe the notches inside will help you figure it out....



A GUN CABINET!!

I'm just so stunned that Trisha picked up this thrift store bargain
knowing what she could do with it!



A fresh coat of white paint -
don't we all LOVE WHITE PAINT?!!



And a super pretty fabric for the door!

What a great storage cabinet for a girl - or a boy with different colors.




Head over to Trisha's site for the full tutorial, great before & afters,
