Good morning eveyone!
I hope you all had a fabulous holiday with your family and friends! It was nice to finally settle down a bit and relax after all the rush, rush since Thanksgiving.
Today I am sharing 15+ furniture makeovers with you! (from myself and a bunch of my talented blogger friends)
If you read my blog regularly, you know that furniture transformations are one of my favorite things to do.
I’m so excited to share these with you……
So, grab your cup of coffee and sit back and enjoy!
Please be sure to visit my friends at the links below to see the full details, before and afters, etc.
And don’t forget to pin them to your boards so you’ll have easy access to them when do your project.
*Just be sure to click on the link and pin directly from each project’s own page so you’ll be able to find them easier later on!
I’ll start with my own first….one of my favorite pieces.
This one went through quite the transformation.
It was first painted with Primer Red (Annie Sloan Chalk Paint)….which was just wrong for this piece. Can you imagine?
You can see the full before, during (Primer Red) and how I did this “after” -> HERE.
Christy found this beautiful antique desk in really bad shape at a yard sale for $15. She used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint to revive it for her teen son’s room. You can find the complete how-to at Our Southern Home.
Emperor’s Silk Dresser with dark wax by Sonya from At Home with the Barkers creates a striking piece!
I know we are all interested in Dria’s post on How To Achieve a Brush Strokes Free Finish from Dio Home Improvements. Thanks, Dria!
Lani from Simply Fresh Vintage has a tip involving White-Out that she used on this dresser! Why didn’t I think of it?!
Paint and Mod-Podge rescue this Goodwill table from Jeanette over at Snazzy Little Things.
Yes, you can paint laminate! Megan from Rappsody in Rooms shares the how to! Her entire porch is full of thrifty do it yourself ideas!
Gorgeous redo from Beth over at Farm Fresh Vintage Finds! You won’t believe the before! Removing a few lower panels and replacing with bead board really updates this stunner!
Beautiful piece from Petticoat Junktion. Kathy is fearless in her creativity! She is always generous in sharing her techniques with readers.
Are you sitting down? This dining set was $85! Visit Christy from Confessions of a Serial Do It Yourselfer for the details! The transformation is amazing!
You can even update a piece with just stripes from Just a Girl and Her Blog! Abby adds grain sack stripes to an already painted chest for a quick update! Stripes are hot right now!
Chateau Grey is my absolute favorite Annie Sloan Chalk paint color. Sharon from Mrs. Hines Class painted this old dresser, and it is now used as a media cabinet! Where is the “Love” button?
Check out this whimsical beauty by Amanda from Mommy is Coo Coo. The fabric and color choice are such fun!!! I have a major crush on this chair!
Beautifully painted furniture doesn’t have to just be painted in chalky paint brands. This is lovely finished in gloss from Lowe’s! Visit Paula from Sweet Pea for the color and details!
Loving this retro table. Jen from Girl in the Garage has awesome tips for painting geometric designs on furniture! She does lots of furniture so be sure to click around on her blog!
This piece by Pamela From My Front Porch To Yours shows that you shouldn’t look over a badly damaged piece. This water damaged secretary is painted with not one, but two chalk paint colors. The inside is left stained!
Serena from Thrift Diving has an amazing twofer (is that a real word?) for you! Not only will she share with you the paint project, but shares how to reupholster this chair in detail!
Last, but not least by any means is Julie from Lilacs and Longhorns. She transformed this Craig’s List find with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint AND added bun feet. Visit for the how-to.
Do you have anything in your home that’s been begging for a makeover? I’d bet you do, everyone has at least one!
Or maybe an old garage sale or thrift store find?
Why not try it?
It’s only paint? Or stain or poly, right? Nothing that can’t be fixed!
If you don’t have anything, visit your local thrift store and pick up a piece to paint/refinish.
That’s the perfect place to find something inexpensive to start with.
But, be warned, it is addictive!
I have a storage unit full of furniture just waiting to get transformed. I’ll be sharing it and what I do with it in the New Year.
But first, on Monday, I’ll be doing a wrap up post “Best of 2013″.
Be sure to check back!
Hope you all have a fun and relaxing weekend!
Be sure to follow me on Instagram if you don’t already!
I always post projects and things I’m working on plus lots of fun random dailies.
