Fabulous Furniture Features

I have BIG plans for a dresser makeover in my near future. Very near. Like this week along with an entire guest bedroom makeover. Ambitious! Crazy! I don’t have the dresser yet but I do have the paint. So, let’s look at some fabulous furniture makeovers for a little motivation today! Please click the links to be redirected to the original blogger’s post with more details, pictures and tutorials. Warning: It’s a long post, but trust me…I need inspiration and these are all so inspiring. 
Daena is an inspiration when it comes to painting furniture. Her entire blog is filled with amazing transformations! Check out these beauties:

*I’d like to thank Emily for the correct pronunciation of “ikat”.  It sounds like “ee-kot”! All this time I’ve been mispronouncing it. I wish someone would have pointed it out! Of course you don’t know that I’ve been saying “i-cat” like some Apple version of a my furry pet, unless you’ve seen the videos!  Oh, I’m so embarrassed.  But, over it.  Lesson learned and thank you so much, Emily! For another lesson in pronouncing design terms, visit Lauren at Pure Style Home. She has a wonderful post about it!  
Speaking of ikat! There are still 4 days left to enter to win new flooring for your home and to vote for Cassity & Roeshel.  Our coastal cottage room was designed about beautiful handscraped maple floors and a gorgeous “ee-kot” area rug! Visit Shaw Floors on Facebook to enter! Please! We really need your help these last couple of days!  Cassity is also giving away an area rug of your choice (even the ikat) at Remodelaholic!
And while on the topic of furniture.  Enter to win a designer ottoman kit at the DIY Club too!

BIG ROUND OF APPLAUSE to these bloggers for a DIY job well done and for sharing their talents and inspiration!  I’m motivated.  Heading to find a thrifty-budget once or twice loved dresser today! Wish me luck!
