Makeover Madness

I like myself a good furniture makeover. Actually that is understating things a bit. I LOVE it! I love the whole transformation process. Jen, over at Sanctuary Arts at Home is the queen of furniture makeovers. She’s having a little show & tell. Since the subject is one of my favorite things, I just couldn't resist. For those of you who have been to my blog before, you’ll probably just want to skip this post, otherwise you might feel like you are having an obnoxious déjà vu experience. I have linked to the original posts where possible.

These makeovers were for one particular room: The Craft/Sewing room. They're a little colorful, but that's how I wanted this space to be.

This table was a hand-me-down from my in-laws. We tried selling it in the classifieds, but there were no takers (wonder why). I am so glad, because it is now my wonderful sewing table - a space I use ALL the time.

A little paint and a skirt was all it took to turn this into a piece I love.

This dresser is my FAVORITE transformation yet. It's the same one you see in my header, and is where I store much of my fabric stash.

A couple of freebie chairs. I didn't even paint these, I just did a quick reupholstering job.

This is what I am working on now - hopefully it will be done soon:

I also have an antique writing desk waiting patiently in the makeover queue, as well as a trio of mirror projects, and a coffee table. I just wish there were more hours in the day.
I am excited to see all the other makeovers!

Lets go thrift shopping! I am inspired by all I am seeing today... It will add to my projects and maybe yours as well.

Wow! I really love everything you've done. The chairs are just great. I'm a table person and a chair person...don't why, but I'm always drawn to them.

This is all so beautiful. I love that blue color. I can't decide which is my favorite.

Thank goodness we don't have to follow the old rule about not painting wood furniture! I enjoyed all your projects!

Oh my gosh, I am so adding you to my blog sidebar so I can keep up with the projects you are currently working on. When I see colors like you use, I wonder why I always paint everything white! I love the colors you use!.... Donna @ An Enchanted Cottage
