AHAH Before & After Projects

Monday is our official Before and After showcase day.  I find transformation not only inspiring but deeply moving.  So often we take what we see for granted.  We often operate under the assumption that things, people, situations simply are what they are.  However, I have come to find that almost everything is in a chrysalis state.  We must simply look past -- scratches and scars -- ugly paint -- or a little extra weight.  What it comes down to -- is how we elect to see ourselves and the world around us.  It is my hope that if I can show you how to Restore, Restore and Redecorate something as easy as dresser -- that you can apply this hope and vision to the other facets of your lives.  There is beauty everywhere -- sometimes it just needs to be coaxed forward.
