Furniture DIY

Hey there,

If you know me at all, you know that I am always on the hunt for a good deal. I love bargain shopping, or even better, getting things for FREE! I also enjoy turning ugly things into something beautiful, there is something thrilling about the whole process.


Anyways, recently I moved into a new house. We were at a lose as to what to do in the dining room. We had no dining room furniture so when my mom asked if we wanted a free table and chairs of course I jumped on it. When I saw them I was less then thrilled about their current status but I could see the potential and it made me excited for the outcome.

Here is the “Before” of the table and chairs

I got to work sanding, hammering and painting. It was probably pretty entertaining for any by standards to watch as I’m not always the “handiest” of people. haha.


Here is our dining room “before” we started decorating and putting in the freshly painted furniture….


Here is the “after”!
It’s still a work in progress. We decorated this room for $30! The only thing that we spent money on were the book shelves. We bought them from a friend who is downsizing.


Anyways, hope that you enjoyed this little DIY project. If I could do it, YOU can too!!!!
