I love how simple yet gorgeous this dresser is. It gives off such a sweet vintage vibe!
Sexy stripes and contrasted legs make this vanity a real showstopper.
Who says a buffet has to be serious? This is such a bright, fun piece – a perfect way to lighten up a dining room.
This amazing cabinet transformation makes it look like it could have come from Pottery Barn… so classic and chic.
A chair can become a great accent piece when painted in a bright color.
If you buy a new piece, don’t be afraid to customize it to fit in with the rest of your home!
Even a curbside castaway can turn into a real beauty with a lot of TLC.
I love the blue on this desk- can’t you just imagine sitting here writing in your journal or flipping through family photo albums?
It’s true, Mod Podge will hold just about anything in place – even burlap.
This creative piece would be quite the focal point in someone’s bedroom – and calming too. It reminds me of peaceful waves crashing on the beach… *sigh*
Don’t be afraid to go bold sometimes. The contrast on this chair makes it really eye-catching.
Another bright and fun buffet – it screams “let’s have a party!”
Wrapping paper gives this little table instant cool-factor. It’s both retro and chic!
Classy lines and delicate gold knobs make this dresser subtly stunning.
15. Textured Dresser
Besides burlap and wrapping paper, you can also glue wallpaper onto furniture. It gives it such vintage charm and texture to this dresser!
This perfectly polished piece is perfect for a little beach cottage… anyone agree?
Sometimes you find a great piece but it has layers of old paint and needs to be madeunder. The best thing to do is strip it and start over!
Gorgeous blue with perfect pops of gold – need I say more?
You would not believe how this little beauty looked before she was repaired and prettied… this is one of those times when hard work paid off big! I just love those curves on the front… and the secret hiding inside the drawers. 😉
The classic, clean style of this dresser would fit in with any type of decor – and the knobs add the perfect touch!
Who would have thought something dirty from the garage could become so charming?
22. The Gray Dresser
Another example of what can come of patience and determination. Gorgeous!
I hope you’re feeling inspired – I am! Excuse me while I go grab my paintbrush……
