Ever have a drawer malfunction on an awesome dresser? I have met that sad fate, and my faithful, trusty, and much loved dresser was out on the curb by end of day. Oh, if only I had half the brains of Offbeat Homie Tess, who totally had a "baskets!" moment with this dresser drawer makeover.
This is Offbeat Home's archive of Before & After posts.
Before & After looks at the dramatic room overhaul performed by Offbeat Home readers.
Check out this fucking brilliant before and after highboy dresser action from mollykb. Quite the dramatic change, no? This makeover says I'll see your "fresh paint" upgrade and double down on some patterns and funky knobs. Thankfully she explained how she accomplished this Bohemian dresser look.
Another week, another amazing chair makeover. What is with you talented guys!? Though, I will say that I think this chair makeover wins the Offbeat Home "zombie award" for bringing such an old, broken, ugly chair back from the dead with SUCH amazing style!
My cousins recently moved from California to Texas. They say "everything's bigger in Texas" but that wasn't true for their living room. The large L-shaped sofa that fit perfectly in their last living room was taking up the ENTIRE living space. Luckily for them my interior decorator mother lives near by, and she came over to see what could be done about the situation, without having to buy a new couch.
Maybe it was the paint fumes, but I had epiphany while turning an old bedside drawer into a plant stand… It's not supposed to be a plant shelf — it's a planter! A "tropical blossom" planter.
You often see home makeovers going from retro to more traditional upgrades. Which often makes me sad, because I'm BIG into retro kitchens and living rooms. But Jenn Fletcher from BlondeShot Creative took her dining room and kitchen from "perfectly fine" to "perfectly AWESOME" with retro makeovers.
Kristen took a $40 pair of Craigslist chairs that had CLEARLY seen better days and gave them a painted, glazed, and upholstered makeover that is so chic I couldn't believe it. Even MORE unbelievable — this was her first attempt at DIY re-upholstery! It's Home AND kitty approved for sure.
