Show & Tell Surprise Party – Furniture Makeover Madness!

Furniture Makeover Madness. I love it! I have so many pieces of furniture sitting around with ideas in mind. Check out these inspirational projects. Click the blog link to see the original post, more pics, “furniture surgery” and more creative projects.

Before – yucky!
What I love about this is the magical transformation. Ottomans are SO expensive…look how pretty and perfectly cozy this turned out!

Twenty-Six to Life

Before – monster!

After – sleek and gorgeous!

So many beautiful transformations, I couldn’t choose just 1.

From Jenna – A couple months ago, my aunt was cleaning out her basement and discovered an old patio set that used to belong to my Grandma. It was in good shape and we were in need of a patio set so I snapped it up! I picked up a couple cans of black Rustoleum to cover up some of the rust spots that were showing through and had my Mom cover the seat cushions with some outdoor fabric. The real change needed to happen to the table though, I considered investing in some fun table clothes but decided to go all out and try this mosiac t
ile project. The black tiles were remnants found at a local tile shop (pretty cheap, though I can’t remember the exact price), the while tiles were from Habitat for Humanity Restore (10 cents a tile!), and the green are smashed IKEA plates ($3-4 bucks/plate, I used 3 plates I believe). It’s not quite finished because I need to seal up the edges and make them pretty, but I couldn’t hold off sending in pictures any longer!

Patio Table Before – boring
(Big blogger empty space that I can’t delete…not sure why! Continue scrolling down!)
