Furniture makeovers: before and after

We love to see a bit of clever DIY and we especially love furniture transformations that take sad, old pieces in a totally new direction. So we’ve rounded up 10 of our favourite before-and-after furniture makeovers to get you inspired!

A TV unit becomes … a play kitchen

Furniture makeovers: before and after

For a total cost of about $65 (and fair bit of elbow grease) Erin from Sutton Grace transformed a disused TV unit into a supremely luxe play kitchen – complete with a view! See the steps here. (via Sutton Grace)

A bedhead becomes … a sofa

Furniture makeovers: before and after
The bedhead becomes a sofa backrest, and the footboard is cut in half to form the arms. Add an MDF base and some upholstery and you have a very pretty settee. More details on how it was see here. (via Better Homes and Gardens)

A chest becomes … a mini wardrobe

A TV becomes … a puppet theatre

Furniture makeovers: before and after
The ‘before’ picture is practically an antique! A hulking old TV was gutted and re-born as a kiddie hideway – for use as a reading nook, puppet theatre, pretend shop, and more! See how it was done here. (via Sugar Tot Designs)

A bench becomes … a nicer bench!

Furniture makeovers: before and after
Faults like ripped upholstery and rusty casters can hide a furniture gem’s true potential. A little bit of DIY and a lick of paint and voila! See how it was done here. (via Better Homes and Gardens)

Drawers become … a dolls house

Furniture makeovers: before and after
Two curved drawers were freed from a bedside table, turned on their ends, and fastened together to make a dolls house. The pretty paper decorations add a finishing touch. See the step-by-step process here. (via Nice Girl Notes)

An armoire becomes … an office

A cot becomes … a craft table
