25+ Confessions of a Serial Do-it-Yourselfer Furniture Makeovers

25 Furniture Makeovers/ Confessions of a Serial Do-it-Yourselfer

Hi friends! Today I am sharing a round up of my own furniture makeovers! Since I am going to my very first blogging conference this week (It’s not easy to get away when you have little ones, but I’m finally doing it!), I don’t have anything new and fabulous in the works to share.  So, I’m hoping to woo you with some of my past projects! I hope you enjoy! 🙂

  1. Love every single one Christy!! What a fabulous idea to round them all up here! Ha…I did the same yesterday (for a post for Thursday…travel day! 😉 ) Great minds! (or it was just easy since we are going out of town this week! …either way…great minds!! lol)
    See ya soon!

    • Thanks, Nancy! I have a table and chair set I bought for Brennan that I was going to try to redo to share, but I decided to ditch that project ha ha! I’m putting together another round up for Friday. Looking forward to our trip, roomie! 🙂

  2. You make some awesome projects… gotta try that DIY chalk paint recipe with the Behr. I chalk painted a pretty table white then sealed with Clear satin poly – it turned a dingy yellow only after a few days sitting in my booth! I’ve used the poly before with no problems so guess it was the new diy chalk paint recipe I used. Now i gotta decide to either repaint it or slash to price to sell it. Ugh.

    • Oh that stinks, JoAnn! This is a great recipe, but I’ve only used wax to seal. You should be able to paint right over that poly with the chalk paint. I know it’s frustrating to have to redo a piece you’ve already done though!

  3. These are awesome! Can’t wait to meet you TOMORROW! 🙂

    • Thanks, Kelly! Looking forward to meeting you too, although it’s a shame we live less than 30 minutes from each other and have to travel hundreds of miles away to meet ha ha! Safe travels to you! 🙂

  4. Dang, woman! You have talent! I forgot just how much furniture you have refinished. Amazing! Have fun at Haven! 😀

    Such talent. Everything is so pretty. Thanks for sharing all your beauties! 🙂

    Happy Thursday…

  6. You are one seriously talented lady!! Sharing this on my FB page this week! I miss you:)
