Our Favorite Furniture Makeovers

Do you love seeing before and after furniture makeovers as much as we do? If so, you’ll get a real kick out of this round up of DIY furniture transformations, everything from dressers to consoles and accessories such as lamps and other home decor.

Before and After Furniture Makeovers

One of our favorite hobbies is to upcycle, turn something old and dated into something new and usable. Many of these items were already in our homes and instead of purging and throwing away, we came up with creative ways to make them over.

We also really enjoy heading to the thrift store or nearby garage sales to find hidden treasures. Here are our absolute favorite DIY furniture makeovers we’ve shared on the blog! Be sure to visit the posts to check out the befores!
