4 Amazing Furniture Transformations

4 furniture RedosI wanted to share some Furniture Re-dos that I thought were awesome. The thought for this group is seeing an amazing  transformation in something I would think had almost zero potential. Now that’s me thinking it has zero potential, my personal opinion. Now Create Inspire’s table is quite lovely before but I would have walked right by it because I tend to stencil and with the raised detail it might now work for me. But…… after seeing how she refinished it. My mind is totally changed I am now looking for a piece with a lot of detail so I can glaze that sucker up. I hope you find some inspiration like it did.

The Finished Table My Epic First Stencil project. I learned a lot making this piece. If I did again right now it wouldn’t take me as long. I am sure proud of this Beauty. Read more and check it out in my Shop.
teal-table This is little Blue table that blew my mind and showed me the potential of glazing a piece. Can I say I love Blue? Check out the full transformation on Create Inspire’s site.
1-1 I love this piece because it shows the power of paint. To me the piece before is dated and boring. I wouldn’t have looked twice at it, but look how lovely it is with after Carrie’s crisp white paint job. It got me looking for a majorly underwhelming piece to transform. Read more at her site Painted Furniture Ideas.
Round Blue Table And finally the Round Blue table. This table I left at the a garage sale because I had no idea what to do with it. After I went home I saw a similar round table in a nice bright color on Pintrest. I went flying back for that sucker with fingers crossed and it was still here waiting for me. Read more and check it out in my Shop.

Share your favorite Furniture transformations in the comments. Lucky Melissa. Till next time
