Befores and Afters: Seven MORE Furniture Projects

A freebie from my church youth house - 
battered, but she has nice lines.

(NOTE: After looking at half a dozen places, 
I think I have finally found the correct baskets 
to go where the missing drawer went! 
Where? WALMART. (not pictured)
I have to buy 3 more and paint them white...

As spotted at the thrift store:
Ummm - that cushion needed a cover AND some padding. 

With gold spray paint and matching vinyl recovered (padded) cushion:
Jane Jetson sat here. :)


$5 at the thrift store...

A coat of ASCP French Linen on the whole chair - even the upholstery: 

As spotted in a dumpster-bound stack from my church storage building:

With only a coat or two of homemade white plaster paint:

As spotted at the thrift store for only $60:

A cushion-ectomy and applying three .50c mis-tint sample pots of watered down latex paint:

Dumpster-bound freebie from church storage building:
I have two of these chairs - the other is yet to be painted, but on my to-do list.

Nothing more than a coat of white plaster paint:
A new chair cushion cover is on my to-do list.

A freebie from...don't hate church. 

First, I painted it silver and aged it, added 2x4 legs (thanks, Mason!) and it worked for a while.


Yes, it got a fresh coat of white. 
If it does not move, and it stays here a while, 
it has or will most likely get painted white.

Do YOU have some amazing transformations 
that might inspire others?

Be sure to share them 
at Thrifty Life Thursday, 
here at Revisionary Life.
