My “Before & After” Dining Area

 

image

I spent my spare time yesterday and today spiffing up my blog using

some photos of my dining area...

image

I thought I wanted to use a blue background but ended up going back to a

turquoise color.

I edited a photo of my dining area in Photoshop.

The colors were edited in the above photo.

I did a lot of things to it...wish I could tell you what I did...

I do remember that I used a watercolor effect and crosshatching effect.

I thought it turned out pretty neat.

Birdhouse-------before & after!!!

It is the selective cropping that gets rid of my clutter Smile

I like the Photoshop version a lot better than the “before” version.

Wonder if I can make this area look like my edited photo???

Geezeee, if only redecorating was this easy!!!

  1. It would be great if decorating was this easy. And wouldn't life be grand if we could edit out the things we don't like?

  4. What a fun way to spend a day. I don't know what your blog looked like before, but this is super. The aqua background looks super, and your post-processing on your header worked well.

  6. You are so funny! Can you just imagine if we could edit our decorating with a click? This was a very "Bewitched" post!

  15. Photoshop makes artists out of all of us. It is such fun experimenting with the different options for photos from blending techniques to textures. Thank goodness I took Kim’s class. I am still confused, but I’m doing so much better with it all that i was last year. I love the way you played with the shots of your dining room. Continue to have fun with your camera and Photoshop.
