Fabulous Furniture Makeovers

Looking around today at my home and wondering if a couple pieces of furniture couldn't use a little facelift. I love natural wood tones but after seeing some of these beautiful transformations, I'm inspired.  What do you think?  Click the link to see the full details at each site of these talented ladies.

A Place for Us - I love the before and couldn't imagine it looking any prettier but take a look. The new yellow color is perfectly sunny in her gorgeous dining room. 

Sideboard Before - I love this wood tone however...

Sideboard After - visit her blog to see why this looks so much better with her dining room table.

For All Things Creative - this is a beauty!  Nnekah does an incredible job at making a boring chair look like a diva!  She has a very detailed and helpful tutorial too! Beautiful fabric and nail head trim.

Desk Rescue at Funky Mom Cards...junky to so FUNky!

Before - 40 years of paint and dirt
After - perfect for her friend's daughter!

Olde Windmill Farm - beautiful trunk restoration! Amazing work!

Before - flat, cold and plain

After - beautiful!  I love the natural warm tone.
Inside wants me to organize treasures!

The Polka Dot Umbrella - pretty sofa save!
Purple Monster

Bohemian Chic!

Scratched and worn to distressed blue beauty!

So Stinking Cute - Really! This DIY Headboard is So Stinking Cute!

A genius idea + DIY = beautiful results. AWESOME!

Now if these don't inspire you to grab a can of paint this weekend and change something, I don't know what will!

Enjoy the weekend!

I love the desk and chair makeover!

Michelle @Shellsshabbyshack said...

Awesome transformations. I'm really impressed with the yellow buffet against the gray patterned wallpaper. We have gray walls in our dining room and I think a pop of yellow would look really good after seeing this post!

Have a great weekend! :) Michelle

All of these are amazing, but that red sofa is incredible! I would love to get some outdoor cushions and put that on my porch. I’m always looking for something wicker…but an old sofa like that might be much easier to find.

Terri Weston said...

WOW!! What a difference! Amazing. Wish I was that creative and able to DIY myself.
