Old Dresser Makeover
It’s amazing what a little paint and new hardware will do. I got this dresser for free and now use it so store my craft tools. It’s perfect because the drawers are lined with velvet. Check out all the details and video for this dresser makeover. I made this over twice. The first time I bought the knobs at Habitat for Humanity ReStore, which is a great resource for inexpensive hardware.
Easy Drawer Makeover
Change drawers by decoupaging them or changing the hardware. I made over these drawers and then changed then back after a couple years.
Use Fabric in your Furniture Makeovers
Here is an outdated side table I made over for my best friend to fit in her apartment. All it needed was a fresh coat of paint and some fabric.
Old Bench Makeover
Here is a $5.00 garage sale bench I made over with padding and fabric.
Thrift Store Reading Bench
I turned this little bench with drawer into a reading bench for my daughter’s book nook in her room.

This old picnic table was neglected from the rain outside. With a little sanding, primer, paint, and fabric, I gave it a new fresh makeover for my kids.
