the before

Back in September, lovely friend T moved into her first one-bedroom place. She purchased some great pieces for her new space — a bone-colour couch and chair set, a dark red leather chair, and a cute dining set for two.

Mixing these modern pieces with some of her old favourites got a little tricky. How do you blend the old with the new and make it all co-exist in one open-concept space?

Here are a few before shots of the pieces she wanted to makeover —

Two barstools:

One bookshelf:

And a small side table (with a hot pink top):

(The leafy print fabric is our makeshift drop cloth)

How do you blend the old with the new in your home?

Check back for part one of the reveal tomorrow!
