6 Furniture DIY Projects

For the last two weeks I have been in the middle of new carpeting and re-arranging my furniture. It's a lot of work! I plan to make a few changes to my existing decor, reusing what I already have and making it work for my new look. I am a big fan of using what you already have; you can make big changes with a little effort. Here are 6 furniture make over's that you can do too. Some are more involved, and some very easy! 





I love this transformation! She took something she had and created something she could make use of. You have to see what she did on the inside....so pretty! Check it out right here at Create Inspire Me. 



Here is another redo from Creat Inspire Me; beautiful! And she has given this buffet some finishing touches to make it extra special too. Please click here to see what I mean. Sometimes it's the little details that make all the difference. 


This is an Depression era piece that Create Inspire Me painted. Once again she added a special detail to make it sing and make it hers! I have a Depression era piece I will be re-doing soon (I hope) and I think I may borrow her ideas. I love the blue color too!

Little Black Dresser

You won't believe what this looked like before getting a nice paint job; so classy and elegant  now! Stop over at Sophisticated Yellow to see how she gave this dresser a make over. 


I love the easiness of farm house style decor. And, farm house style is often easy to do yourself. Carissa Miss made her own farm house style table; check it out here.

spray paint patio chairs : like a saturday

Is there anything easier for a DIYer than spray painting? You can make big changes with a little spray can....Like A Saturday painted these freebie chairs for her patio. Did you know they make spray paint just for painting plastic?
