I cannot stop doing furniture makeovers. I am an addict.
I find discarded and unwanted furniture and try to do something interesting with it. I know I am not the only one out there.
It started when I moved to Spain. I have a love of beautiful furniture but couldn’t afford to buy any, so I started trying to make my own for as little money as possible. My house is now fully furnished with street finds. I have set a personal challenge for myself that the uglier the thing is when I start, the more satisfied I will be when I turn it into something nice and/or functional again and thriftier the makeover was, the better.
Here I will share my projects; the successes, the failures, the trials and tribulations and perhaps help a few other makeover obsessed souls along the way.
When I started furniture restoration 5 years ago, I had no idea I would later be writing a blog about it. So I apologise now for the quality of the pictures, most were taken with my tablet in poor lighting for the sole purpose of showing my mum! I am beginning by writing about the projects I have already completed. When I start with the here and now projects I will endeavour to photograph them well and include step by step images and instructions.
