Funky Furniture Redo

We haven’t posted a ton of tutorials lately. Etsy orders started growing in January. I was hoping a “break” would come any day now so I could get ready for my wedding in Mexico at the end of the month…but alas, the orders keep coming in.

In the meantime, I just wanted to share this inspiring post with ya’ll. It is the Top 15 Happily Ever Afters, a fabulous collection of fun and funky furniture that got a little DIY ticket to a new life.


Here are a few of my favorite pieces from the remodel list:

I love this redo!  Nothing brings a restored piece from old and classic to new and modern like a fresh coat of red laquer paint.  I wouldn’t mind dropping my keys on this guy when I came home every day.  Not to mention the fun geometiric print painted on the wall now.  What a difference it makes in the before and after pictures! See the full post here.

I’m pretty excited about this next project too. Lamps, especially designer ones can be so dang expensive. Every once in a while you’ll get lucky and find a piece with good bones at HomeGoods or some place similarly affordable, but more often than not you’ll have to take it to the next level to get a funky piece for cheap. This DIY Vase Turned Lamp project is one I plan to take on this month!  (Now I’ve said it so I have to do it )  Get a good laugh to as you read about UsedEverywhere’s adventures with electricity.DIY Geometric Lamp


Want to buy a lamp like this without all of the DIYing and Base hunting?  Lamps Plus has them in EVERY color of the rainbow for $184.

And lastly this fabulous kelly green table makeover. Do we see a trend in fun funky accent furniture around the house? I think so! See the full tutorial here. I love all the classic whites, crystal, and wood used around this colorful piece.  Provides a nice balance between over the top color and the more traditional.Funky Buffet Before and A

So how did I come across such a colorful collection of furniture redo’s? Well it just so happens that my Chevron Chair project made the list of funky re-do’s.   Don’t forget to check out that tutorial too if you haven’t already!Funky Furniture Redo Tutorial

    Someone recently posted a before and after picture if a nightstand that you refinished black. I also about a year ago did this with a piece that looked identical to yours. It has not lasted so I was wondering what u did exactally. Urs us beautiful. Thanks for ur help.

      Mine is in my living room and still looking fabulous, although it isn’t our most used piece of furniture there…hmmm. I would say the primer step + several good layers of the poly sealer at the end have been helping keep it fresh looking all this time. How many coats of sealer did you use???

      Good luck!
