My inaugural post here on Babble several moons ago was a little ode to DIY furniture makeovers. Turns out, after our recent move and with an entire apartment to outfit, I’m back on the furniture makeover bandwagon in a major way. As in, this weekend I am rolling up my sleeves, grabbing a paint brush and getting busy transforming a pair of side tables in desperate need of some love. So I’ve been rounding up inspiration like it’s my job and I figured you’d love to get in on the action, too. So herewith, 10 furniture makeovers so awesome you’ll be skipping to the hardware store to buy a bucket of paint!
