10 Before and After Furniture Makeovers

Hopefully these before and after furniture makeovers gets your creative juices flowing.  Furniture makeovers are at the very least, eco and budget friendly. Take on a DIY project and transform your flea market finds into fabulous one-of-a-kind furniture. With a little spray paint or fabric, and a lot of imagination you can give new life to a thrift store find for a few dollars. These DIY projects are from some of my favorite blogs and websites. The foot stool is my favorite.  I love the shape and pattern that was chosen.

Here are some quick tips if you are considering a DIY furniture makeover!

Tip 1: Reupholstering is actually very easy.  If you are considering this, examine the piece of furniture before you buy it to make share the seat, for example, is easy to take off and put back on.  Check out my post on upcycled bar stools for

Tip 2: Check out my post on when and how to use primer for a quick and easy to follow guide before tackling a furniture paint makeover.

Tip 3: Instead of a paint make over, consider using wallpaper remnants to update an old table or armoire.
