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.

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