DIY Painted Furniture Makeovers

We can't wait to share this next furniture makeover with you! If you've followed us for any length of time you know that we are big proponents of altering furniture when it makes sense.

If it's not functional, if it looks outdated or doesn't fit your decor, ALTER it! You can easily update your furniture by painting it, adding legs, taking off doors, adding design elements or simply just re-thinking it's purpose. Today, we're going to share some examples of DIY painted furniture refinished with all of these in mind!

Aren't Christmas traditions wonderful!? We have a few of them and one of my favorites is to buy matching christmas pajamas for my kids and watch them open them up on Christmas Eve. Once they unwrap them and put them on, I ask them to sit next to each other around the Christmas tree for a quick 2 minute photo shoot. We take some nice ones and add in LOTS of silly ones. These holiday photos are framed and turned into ornaments for our Christmas tree. Over the years it has been so fun to see how they've grown from one holiday season to the next. My oldest is now a pre-teen so finding comfy pajamas that match at a regular retail store is getting to be tricky.
