Hello lovely Friends! I’m always so happy when you stop by. If you are new around here, welcome! I’m so excited that you have decided to follow along with me!
It’s been about a year since I rounded up a few (or 30) of my own furniture makeovers, so I thought it was time to put together another. Most of these pieces were absolutely nothing fancy to begin with, but a little TLC went a long way.
Let’s start with this little shabby sewing machine table. It was really quite beat up when I found it, but for $10, I dragged it home anyway…
It had so many dings and bumps that I kept it pretty shabby to make them work.
Next up is this little side table that I picked up at the thrift store for less than $20:
I updated it with paint and the addition of fabric on the drawer panel. It’s not so plain anymore!
I’m not sure why but this little rocker I picked up for just a few dollars is one of my favorite makeovers:
It turned out so sweet, and sold right away! I shared how to add a padded seat in this post:
This next little table had a paint job that was a total hot mess, but for $7 I figured I would try to do something with it:
I added lace detail using a lacy café curtain and spray paint!
Boy I did a lot of side tables! Here is this little cookie cutter one before:
It got a new look with grey and white paint:
Next up is this entry table I scored at an estate sale for cheap:
Fabric was a fantastic addition to this piece (and I kept it!):
This next project was a surprise for my Mom. I redid her whole bedroom suite while she was out of town. It was super 80’s oak before:
Some new feet, hardware, and a sweet new paint job brought this pretty piece right up to date!
How about something other than white? This was my number one most viewed post that I shared in 2015:
This headboard I turned into a bench was the perfect candidate for Mason Jar Blue Milk Paint:
Shortly after that, I shared how I managed to change up a table my Mom had painted a coastal scene on:
Without painting over her artwork:
I love so many things about this next set that I found for around $60:
This is actually an old chart table, but adding a couple of coordinating chairs, I thought it would make a great set for an office:
This little serving piece was 75% off on the final day of an estate sale:
I updated it with French Linen chalk paint and thought it could double as a TV stand:
This crazy sponge painted dressing table was a $20 Estate Sale find:
I paired it with a petite chair I already had purchased for just a few dollars to create a beautiful set for a sweet young lady:
Here’s another little thrift store side table I scored for a great price:
The addition of a harlequin pattern made this such a unique piece:
Next up is this hutch I found at my neighborhood’s annual yard sale for only $60:
The addition of bead board on the back and a fresh coat of white paint turned into a quick sale!
This pedestal table was a $10 yard sale find from the same neighborhood sale:
It went thorough a couple of changes before I settled on this color combination for a fresh coastal-inspired feel:
This next little chair was one of those things I purchased only because it was so cheap! I got a pair of these chairs for $3 a piece:
I had no idea how I was going to make these unique, but a little makeover with some Robin’s Egg Blue spray paint seemed to do the trick:
I couldn’t pass up this classic oval yard sale coffee table:
A little hand-painted French Detail gave it a whole new personality:
I picked up this antique folding sewing table with the $3 chairs:
A new paint job and it makes the perfect little writing desk. I thought it would make a great addition to a spare bedroom:
How about this cane-backed club chair:
New upholstery using the leftover curtain panels from the Paris Table set brings this little beauty right up to date:
This was a big brown dated beast of a dresser that I found at Good Will:
It got a much more sophisticated look with some of my favorite fabric added to the drawers:
I had this night stand that had similar lines, so I did it to match the dresser:
I did several dressers last year. Here is another that I found for only $40 at a yard sale:
It was prefect for a simple shabby makeover:
The drawers are my favorite part…
Here’s an antique beauty that didn’t start out so beautiful:
My sectional also got a makeover:
With the addition of my new DIY slip covers:
This next piece had a broken seat, but it was so cute and the price was right:
It’s so much sweeter now, plus I shared how to fix the seat in this post:
I almost didn’t get to bring this home since a girl was literally hugging it at the thrift store:
But it was meant to be…
I painted this next piece for our “Black” Themed Furniture Thursday:
Of course black isn’t really my thang, but close enough! I replaced the broken mirror with a chalkboard, and the sides got the stripe treatment. (I ended up selling it as a set with the petite French chair above!) :
This sweet plant stand was a thrift shop challenge between me and my buddy, Nancy from Artsy Chicks Rule. (We even made a video!):
It looks so much more updated with its grey and white paint job:
This empire dresser was more trouble than I bargained for:
After nearly reducing me to tears, it turned out great in the end:
This table and chair set is one of my favorite makeovers! I picked this up for only $40:
Love this coastal color combo!
This $20 yard sale table started out painted:
The paint job was really bad though so I decided it needed to be uncovered a bit to reveal that beautiful wood beneath:
There you have it, Friends, over 30 of my own furniture makeovers from the past year. A lot of my pieces were smaller this year as they move faster in my booth space, but I think I was able to get a few more done.
