Fun Furniture Makeovers Before and After

If you couldn’t tell already by my past posts, I love it when old furniture is upcycled or repurposed into something new and fabulous.  Go green and get eco-friendly (and budget-friendly) by turning trash into treasure.  Here are some fabulous furniture makeovers with some of my inspiring favorites. Most of them only need a few materials.

Update a Dresser with Stencils

Add some color with stencils and spray paint. This was an old wooden IKEA dresser and I used stencil tape and spray paint to add some color and use in my dressing room and walk in closet. This style and idea also works well for extra storage in a teen bedroom.

Materials Needed

  • Paint
  • Stencils
  • Paint Brush
