Welcome to another fun fleaChic Before & After Friday.   Let's dive right in.

A dated hand-me-down dresser and
hutch were given a country makeover: 

A pitiful dresser was given
an extended useful life:


One can of paint completely changed this china cabinet:

Look what you can do with a thrift shop dresser:


The beautiful details of this distressed

Sanding and a paint wash highlighted the scroll work.

Here's another example of paint bringing out details:

What a lovely shade of blue.

This pair of end tables went from blah . . . . .

. . . . . to ahhhhh!

We've all seen these pressboard side tables
at yard sales and thrift shops:

I don't know about you but I would probably
have walked right past this dresser:

Paint and new hardware completely transformed it:

Beautiful transformation . . . . . .

Look what a difference paint made
to this bedroom chest and dresser:

Yikes!  This little desk was almost beyond salvaging:

What a cute addition to a young girl's room.

Here's another astonishing desk makeover:


It's easy to end up with different pieces of mismatched
furniture.  This charming little end table and an old chest
of drawers were painted to match:


The next time you happen across a distressed little nightstand . . . . .

. . . . remember this nautical makeover.

Today's last before and after project will make you smile.
A very clever homeowner turned their ugly pool filter
into a Despicable Me Minion: 


If you're out thrift shopping this weekend keep an
eye out for your own potential makeover projects.
