Out with the Old in with the New – Fab Furniture Makeovers

It’s time to start thinking about the new year.  I love holiday decorating but when it comes time to put it all away, it feels so good to start the new year de-cluttering.  I also love to re-arrange the rooms and make them feel new. How about you?  An easy way to do that is to give an old piece of furniture a fresh new look or get creative and think outside the box.  Check out these for inspiration…

This transformation from Agakry at Niemamconasiebie is so sweet.  It’s in Polish, but like she says, you can understand the universal language of pictures.  Here is the before…
and this is the adorable after. I love the new white look with the striped fabric.  The little bug decal is too cute.  I enjoyed browsing through her blog to check out her unique and fun style too.
Even just something small can make a big difference.  I love this before and after from Happy House, Happy Home
