I like to see the before pictures of refinished furniture because it gives me an idea what to look for when thrift store shopping. It helps train your eye to find that "just right" piece that may look like "just junk" to everyone else. (Hey! I should have my family do this! They think all the stuff I buy is "junk"!)
More to come! Right now my husband is waiting for me to watch "24". We just got Netflix and we can't stop with this show! It's not even that good but they really get you with the cliffhangers.
