20 Incredible Ideas For Refurbishing Old Furniture!
Have you been considering using a website like eBay, Gumtree or Preloved to purchase some old furniture to repaint or give a total makeover, and feel completely stuck? With no idea of how to create something as stunning as the furniture makeovers featured here today? I have to warn you that this is a huge, picture heavy post!
In the last couple of years, I really took to furniture, in a big way.
Renting a home that’s already fully furnished can mean you don’t have any interest in furniture. At least, that was my story.
Then I decided, I can invest in some small pieces that I can use down the line. I invested in a little cabinet to store my fabric in and discovered some amazing furniture makeovers online and have been following the decor trend ever since!
Perfect Purple Cabinet
It’s a fabulous colour right?
There are so many amazing, colourful paints for working with furniture these days! Currently, my favourite is DecoArt Chalky Finish furniture paint or Everlong paint which doesn’t require finishing wax. But it changes, depending on the project.
Washi Tape Dresser Drawers
I featured Wooz DK and this fabulous set of drawers before but they deserved another mention! – wooz.dk Do you have lots of washi tape that you could attach to drawers? The pink shade is beautiful and I love the contrasting colour on the mirror!
The furniture in the Wooz Household is really rather marvellous!
Beautiful Floral Wallpaper Sideboard
Red and Aqua Makeover
Isn’t this colour combination fabulous!? I love it! From Stylists own blog.
I love this ‘atomic’ 60’s style makeover. I would never have been able to think of creating this from its original state. I’m struggling at the minute with a wall mounted house shaped shelf! via Poppytalk
Pip Studio Wallpaper Wardrobe
Wallpapered Wardrobe Doors
I love Pink Friday! This wallpaper is crazy, the Scandinavian’s are SO lucky with such a huge range of amazing vintage designed furniture, wallpaper and decor that’s available. – via Pink Friday blog.
Patchwork Bedside Table
If I didn’t already have a gorgeous bedside table I would do something like this! It’s quite similar to the patchwork wallpapered door that was in my last craft room, which you can see here. The little cabinet looks marvellous. Via Two Shades of Pink blog
Mosaic Step Stool
I love this mosaic ladder! It looks so effective. I imagine it would cut the feet off you in bare feet but I guess the key would be; don’t go up the ladder without shoes! Unfortunately, the Flea Market Makeovers blog has been deleted, I would have loved to have seen more upcycled furniture.
Perfect Pastel Armoire
This armoire is just perfection to me…
Perfection! Via Couture-Et-Turbulences. I almost passed out from excitement when I first saw it. DecoArt do a great range of pastel chalk paint in those colours:
Bright Scandinavian Side Board
This blog has some of the most amazing furniture I’ve ever seen! I Love this G-Plan dresser. Via Mor til Mernee My granny has lots of G Plan furniture, it would be perfect for a retro home.
Gorgeous Aqua Pink Dresser
The colours of this dresser are my absolute favourite! via LavantteHome on Etsy. The bright aqua shade lifts my heart! Those vintage suitcases are a great storage option for a craft room.

Jasna has done an amazing job painting and distressing this Ikea cabinet! Using lace behind glass is an excellent idea.
Beautiful Purple Chair
Jasna has some amazing paint colours! I love this shade of purple.
Aqua Bedside Table Makeover
Creative Children’s Bedroom
I’ve featured a fabulous Children’s play shed from the Huset ved Fjorden blog before, I wish I lived in this house. I love that little table and those drawers. Those look like G-Plan too!
The mint shade of paint is beautiful.
Pretty Pastel Drawers
These are such wonderful colours and I love that painted frame! – via Huset ved Fjorden
I don’t have a headboard but I need one these! The heart is obviously my favourite part. Via 101Woonideeen
You could create faux embroidery on this headboard using a paint marker.
Super Bright Painted Furniture!
Of course, I had to share some bright colours! Just to even out the pastel overload – via Krudtuglensmor Blog
I struggled to find bright chalk paint, as they’re all rather muted colours. There’s a chance that this furniture was painted using spray paint and I found some fabulous colours on eBay.
