Hello my amazing, supportive, encouraging, awesome Friends!! I am still working on a couple of unfinished projects, so today I decided to dig through my posts and pick out my favorite 25+ (okay, there’s 26 lol) furniture makeovers from this year to share with ya’ll! I always enjoy looking back, and I thought you might enjoy that as well!
Click on the link below each photo to see more of that project. Enjoy!
Up first is this antique dressing table I found at the Habitat Restore and paired with a thrift store mirror:
One of my favorites!
I loved that fabric on the back of the door.
This next one was only $5. I didn’t love it, but it was ONLY $5, right??
That one didn’t last long.
This one was for my dear friend’s daughter:
She loved the pop of blue on the drawers that matched her room. That whole makeover was done using spray paint!
I hadn’t planned on keeping this one, but when I staged it here behind my sectional to take photos, I loved it and decided it needed to stay!
Next is another $10 find…
It was the childhood bed of the lady that was selling it so I knew I had to do something special with it. 🙂
That was one of my dining room chairs…it matched perfectly!
Love how that one turned out!
How about some color?
That sat in my shop for the longest time. It finally sold last month!
This outdoor glider bench that sits in the entry leading up to our front door got a much-needed makeover in the Spring, new DIY cushion covers and all:
Totally counts as a furniture makeover, right?
Next up is one of my favorites…this very dated hutch got a much-needed update!
I’m always on the lookout for hutches…they are great sellers!
This is another piece that sat in my garage for forever…
I finally painted it and it looked so pretty with it’s new blue hue!
This next piece turned out so feminine and pretty, but it didn’t start out that way…
It doesn’t even look like the same dresser!
You know I love my white-washed fence pickets. This bookcase got a cool coastal makeover when I added them to the back:
Who knew that boring little bookcase could be so cute?
How about a kid’s furniture makeover?
Those sad mismatched pieces came together perfectly with a little TLC and some paint, and children’s furniture always sells well.
This French Provincial side table was my guinea pig for my Homeright Paint Sprayer (affiliate link):
It works great with my DIY chalk paint recipe!
This buffet was a $5 yard sale find…
Love the hidden pop of blue!
This next table is one of a pair that got a simple coastal inspired update:
There were two of them, but they sold separately.
I loved the first bookcase I did with the wood backing so much that I decided to do a similar treatment to this one as well, only with a little color this time:
Such a cool way to update an old bookcase!
This next piece belonged to my Hubby’s late Grandmother…
I think she would have loved it. I also did the taller dresser to match.
These inexpensive yard sale bar stools got a new look with this pretty green from Fusion Mineral Paint (affiliate link)…
I love how they turned out. That was my first time using Fusion Mineral Paint, and I loved it!
This spindle bed sat in my garage for two years…so sad! It finally got its day to shine:
If you look closely, you can see blue peeking out from beneath the white paint with this layered look I did using Vaseline.
I found this next little cutie while thrifting with my blogging buddy, Nancy from Artsy Chicks Rule. We made a video of our shopping trip you can see in that post!
That one didn’t last long as most children’s pieces don’t.
I loved how the top turned out on the desk.
This vintage coffee table got its second makeover last month:
Hoping it sells now!
I love how this turned out. This was the biggest project I’ve tackled with my Silhouette machine.
There you have it, over 25 of my thrifty furniture makeovers from this year!

I’ll be back on Tuesday sharing how I updated this shelf (again):
See ya then, sweet friends!
