DIY furniture projects are an excellent way to use your creative abilities and turn old, used and salvaged furniture pieces into beautiful, usable pieces of furniture.
By visiting second-hand stores, garage and yard sales as well as moving sales, you can find those pieces of furniture that need a new life!
Don’t pass up a bedraggled piece of furniture at a yard sale or thrift shop. You never know how beautiful they can look with a ‘make over’!
We have two ideas for you that prove that an idea and a little elbow grease will result in stunning pieces of furniture.
Here are two DIY furniture projects that turned out great!
Turn an older dresser into a bookshelf…a coat of paint, minus the drawers does the trick!
You can turn a thrift store end table into a creative chess table for children.
Use a foam roller to get a smooth painted surface.
An interesting note – the chess pieces were painted by children for their school’s yearly auction.
This chess board can also be used as a checker’s board. And, the drawer can be used to store the game pieces.
