12 Yard Sale Furniture Makeovers


Hey guys!  I’ve been doing this blogging thing for almost four years now (in September), and I thought it would be fun to revisit some of my past yard sale furniture makeovers – especially for all the new followers out there.

Yard sales are my favorite place to go shopping for furniture to redo – they’re usually cheaper than thrift stores, and the sellers are almost always willing to negotiate.  Here are a few of my favorite transformations – some of the Afters look completely different than the Befores!  Click any link below to visit the full tutorial of the makeover.

    What a fun look back at all your amazing transformations!! I have put myself on a yard sale diet this Summer so I can get rid if what I already have, but I know I’m missing out on some steals!! That cabinet with the faux mini drawers was awesome! XO
