7 Incredible furniture makeovers that will blow your mind

Transforming an old thrift store furniture find into a brand-new item can turn something cheap in price into a high quality (and expensive-looking) object.

Whether it’s spray painting a side table bright green or reupholstering a worn down vintage trunk bench, these furniture makeovers go bold with color and unique with design.

Take a look at the before and after of these seven stylish furniture makeovers from the editors at!

1. Tube turned dog house

Completely gutted and cleaned out, this 200-pound retro TV was transformed into a fabulous doghouse, layered with hot pink paint and flower patterned curtains.

2. Vintage trunk bench

While some vintage pieces are better left untouched, this rusty trunk was too tattered to be left in its original state. With a fresh coat of paint and newly upholstered fabric, this vintage trunk received an entirely brand-new look.

3. Ikea Tarva hack: Drink bar

This Ikea hack took a three-drawer chest and turned it into a gorgeous emerald green drink bar with custom-made shelves, doors and knobs. Pretty gold accents and a polka dotted interior top off the finished product of this makeover.
