This site features creative furniture makeovers submitted by the talented DIYers and artists who created them.  The makeovers featured here represent:

  • scouting yard sales, thrift stores, online sites, curbs
  • often hours of prep work
  • trial and error
  • experimentation with paints and techniques
  • months or years of experience
  • sweat, heart, and soul (and sometimes tears) into every project
  • either kept for personal use (decorating on a budget) or sold to help their family’s income

We realize that one pretty After picture is more than just a picture; it is the culmination of all of these factors.  On this site we celebrate all of these things and strive to inspire our readers to be creative with their own furniture makeovers.
