Hello Party Box Design Fans

Hi, I'm Shara. I blog over at Little Gray Table. Jess kindly invited me to guest post over here from time to time. I'm huge into DIY projects and refurbishing furniture. I also love cooking, baking, photography, and being a stay at home mom to my three rug rats ages 6, 4, and 2. I look forward to sharing with you some fun and creative craft and home decor projects.

Today, I am going to share with you my top five furniture make overs that I have completed in the past year. I love finding something that is no longer loved and turn it to something fabulous. So let's begin:

#5 Old Ugly 70's Hutch turned bookshelf for the boys' room


This ugly old hutch was in desperate need of some love. I transformed it into a fun place to store books and toys. To see the full transformation, click here.




#4 Broken dresser with missing drawer given a new lease on life


This dresser was missing an entire drawer so I added wood to create the perfect shelf for a basket. It now holds crafting supplies in my craft room. To see more, click here.


#3 Coffee Table Makeover


I found this diamond in the rough at a local thrift store. It was the perfect size for my living room. I took it from drab to fab with a little paint and a fun stencil. See how I transformed it here.


#2 Dining Table Make Over

This one is on the list not only because I love how it turned out but because I got this table for free off of Craigslist.

#1 China Hutch Make Over

This is by far my favorite project to date. It is just a fun and vibrant piece. I love it.


Would you believe this hutch only cost me $25? It is the best find I've come across so far.



So, what do you think? Do you like transforming things into something better? I hope this post has inspired you to look beyond the surface beauty and envision what something could become. I am excited to get to share with you some other fabulous transformations and craft ideas in the coming weeks.

Happy Crafting,
