I’ve known about Design*Sponge for a while, its a really great blog (you’ll find it in my blog roll) with sections on trends, sneak peeks at designers work, guides on places and other stuff, lots of guest bloggers and even recepies! (see my Macaroon blog)

Best of all is the Before and After section! People send in before and after photos of their DIY restoration projects and they’re really great! I’m so inspired! Can’t wait to move into my flat (whenever and wherever that may be) and get some awesome junk furniture to restore!
I love the beautiful fabrics, bright colours and interesting paintings people use to revive their objects!

Here are a few of my favourites:before and after

I love how inventive the ideas are and that nothing is too small to restore! Even some new Ikea products have been given a personality all of their own…check out the rest of the blog and the Before and Afters, the archive goes back to 2004 so theres no shortage of exciting things to look at 🙂
