10 Amazingly Bold & Colourful Furniture Makeovers


If you’re anything like I am, you have at least one piece tucked away in a shed, garage or crawl space just crying out for a makeover! And I’m constantly hunting around Pinterest for inspiration. Recently, I’ve gone deep into my heart’s desires and started bringing COLOUR back into my decor, so I figured it made sense to do a bit of a round-up of 10 Amazingly Bold & Colourful Furniture Makeovers I’ve found and really love!

(Just a quick note: You can Pin the graphic below to bring you back to this post, but if you’re going to pin individual photos of projects, PLEASE head to that specific blog and pin from there, K? We bloggers work hard for our new visitors and I know you want to spread the love around evenly! Thanks so much!)

This Blue Buffet from Thirty Eighth Street is so gorgeous! I love the detail and the contrast she created with the wax. It really brings this old piece back to life.

I always like to say that this piece is an oldie but a goodie. It was one of my most popular furniture flips at the time and I really pushed the envelope with the bright pea green colour! It was a total transformation!!

This LIME GREEN bar cart by 2 Bees in a Pod is an eye catching piece for sure! It used to be just a boring kitchen cart, but the use of green metallic paint and it’s now perfect for an outdoor fiesta!

Curbside Desk Rescue

While this little desk rehab is a wonderful warm grey (not particularly colourful) – the pop inside the drawers is what makes it work and stand out! I’m so happy to say that I’ve passed this desk onto the daughter of a dear friend and she is loving it!

You all know that we’re getting an Ikea in my city in the next couple of months?! YES WE ARE! I cannot WAIT. This Ikea Bookcase Hack by This is our Bliss speaks to me in volumes… Wonderful Blue and black and white volumes… I seriously want this in my house right meow.

Meg blogs at Green with Decor and she never ever disappoints when using her signature colour to bring an old piece into its glory. This little side table is like one you’d find at a yard sale for $5… and look at what the addition of mint paint and gold legs did for it!

I still swoon EVERY TIME I see this credenza in our playroom. I cannot believe what it used to look like and it brings me so much joy that I took a chance on a bright pink!!

Can you tell I have a thing for teal? Can you imagine how gorgeous this teal and white buffet piece by That Sweet Tea Life would be in a dining room?! Are you now looking at that boring old hand-me-down in your house differently? haha…

I’ve tried to paint a piece yellow and it failed miserably – so it always makes me happy to see other people who have used this tone successfully! This Sunshine Yellow TV stand by Just The Woods hits all the right notes!

Isn’t this coral cabinet by Nourish & Nestle DIVINE?! It’s so happy!!

I SO SO hope this post has given you some inspiration to get going on a furniture flip and to maybe take a leap and try some COLOUR!! 🙂 What do you think?
