Maybe it’s a table given to you by a family member that fits your space well, but doesn’t go with your whole home color scheme.

Or maybe it’s a cabinet you need to keep because you just can’t afford something else right now.

7 furniture makeovers to inspire your own projects

What to look for in a piece of furniture that you want to makeover

  1. Great bones. You want something that’s fairly solid. If it’s not, but you can easily repair it, that’s okay too.
  2. A great shape. When you makeover a piece of furniture, the overall shape generally stays the same.
  3. Something you can paint. Paint and primer has come a long way, so you can paint almost anything. But make sure you do a little recon to see which paint will work best for your piece.
