before and after

before & after: maggie’s window + misty’s dresser

by Grace Bonney

today’s third before & after comes from letterpress artist in tampa, florida. a design team was coming to her studio for a visit so she needed a way to display some of her stationery work. so she headed to local antique store to hunt for a frame and came home with an old, beat up window. she painted the frame blue and painted the glass with magnetic paint. then she had her create magnets for the display board. and ta-da: a brand new way to display work out of an old window frame. thanks for sharing, maggie!
