Beth of Sawdust and Embryos recently shared some of her redos with me, and man, that gal has been a busy bee! If I churned out even one of these projects, I'd congratulate myself and take a couple of years off. No, really, I wish I could produce makeovers left and right, but I can't seem to make it happen at this season of life. I don't know how people like Miss Mustard Seed and Brooke at All Things Thrifty do it, but I'm suspecting there's some kind of deal with the devil involved. (ha! I kid!)
Anyway, let's get to Beth's fantasticness. First up, this horrid, HORRID buffet thing somehow turns into a respectable, nay, resplendent changing table! See more HERE.
Second, this chunky dresser got the VIP treatment, which is of course, being doused in gold. That's what I imagine happens inside the VIP rooms, right? Servants smother you with liquid gold and money falls from the ceiling? Don't ruin my dreams.
Anyway, doesn't it look like a Mayan treasure chest or what? See more HERE.
And lastly this yellow hutch looked more like it had a place in the "tales as old as time" rather than the current times, so Beth transformed it from a singing cartoon armoire look-a-like to a bright and funky showstopper. Notice the swirls on the back? Whimsical! See it HERE. Amazing work, Beth!
Hi! I'm Lindsey, and this site is inspired by you! This is a showcase of my favorite part of any design project or makeover: The before and afters! It's always better after! I love seeing transformations of thrift store treasures or overlooked items into beautiful and functional design and decor. I'm endlessly inspired by what people can conceive and create.
