Thirty Eighth Street is a blog dedicated to taking the furniture impossible and transforming it into the possible! We love the process of repurposing, reusing and recycling unloved furniture and refinishing them into show stopping pieces. Let's face it... everyone needs a makeover from time to time! We're firm believers that it doesn't have to cost a fortune to decorate your home and our mission is to demonstrate this one piece at a time. We hope that you feel inspired, informed and empowered to tackle your OWN furniture makeovers. Return often to get the latest and most up to date furniture makeover before and afters.
Why Do We Name Our Furniture Pieces?
Some of the furniture pieces we receive have a story. We think those stories are worth telling. Some of these furniture pieces have sentimental value from the people that have loved them. Some are easy to part with, others have a hard time. Some of these pieces have traveled great distances and have seen many decades. And so have their owners. We enjoy meeting the people behind our furniture pieces. Learning and listening to their stories is just about as much as fun as the makeover journey itself! Here are some of our most favorite furniture makeovers of all time. Enjoy!
