Top 10 Furniture Makeovers of 2015

Every year, I get so excited to pull the reports and see which of our blog posts were the most viewed in the prior year. Then I compile them into a quick list for you all to see and enjoy! You can click on any title or picture to see the “how to” for each makeover and a little of the story behind each piece. The story is one of the things I love the most about what I do, so take some time to check them out. A HUGE thanks for stopping by friends! The list starts with the most viewed post during 2015.  Take a peek and see if your favorites made the top ten list!

1) White Mid Century Dresser with Ombre Drawers

Seeing this as the top post for 2015 made me so happy! Mostly because this is one of my favorite designs this year. I loved working with this mid century piece, painting the box a crisp color and staining the drawer fronts. I’m thrilled you liked it, too!

2) Pantone’s Color of the Year Marsala Hutch

This hutch was painted Pantone’s color of the year for 2015 so it seems appropriate that it made the top 10 list. To be honest, it’s not my favorite color… but you all wanted to see it on a hutch and then you came here to check it out! Thanks for stopping by!

3) Art Nouveau Desk & Glass Secretary Cabinet Makeover

This is another piece I was happy to see on the top ten list. Mostly because it’s such a unique piece and I poured myself into the design. I wanted something timeless but completely different.

4) Black Retro Style Sideboard 

Once again… we had similar taste in favorites because this is decidedly one of my top favorite designs of 2015! I loved taking a traditional sideboard and giving it a retro feel with similar colors as the original. Melt. Swoon. Melt!

5) Gold Dipped China Cabinet 

This makeover was so bold and I knew it would take just the right buyer, but I still thought it was the right look for the china cabinet. It’s actually still available to buy here on our Furniture For Sale Page.

6) Gray Mirrored Dresser

I couldn’t wait to get started on this dresser and boy oh boy did I love the final result! It flew out of our store so I guess that means you all liked it a lot, too. :)

7) Updated Ethan Allen Hutch

Fabric backed hutches were another popular design for 2015 so seeing this on the top 10 list seemed very fitting!

8) If Vera Bradley Had a Hutch 

Here’s another go bold or go home hutch with fabric on the back that didn’t last long on our website and was shipped to Texas!

9) Rustic Chic Dresser Set 

Hands down… probably my favorite new design of 2015. I had never seen it done, but I wanted to add barn board to a dresser that had clean lines. Mixing modern and rustic in one piece – which is one of my favorite things to do. Thrilled doesn’t even begin to show how excited I was to see this on the top 10 list!

10) Gray Buffet Makeover

Last on the list but probably the most sought after from our posts is this gray hutch. Once people saw the transformation, they wanted one of their own.

Also, to recap the year, we were beyond ecstatic when our episode of HGTV’s Flea Market Flip aired in March!

Also, on a personal note, we moved into our 1805 dream house this year. We weren’t even looking to move and saw this dream house of ours for sale. God worked out every detail and here we are as of November!

Last, but most certainly not least, you helped raise over $1,100 to help those in poverty around the world! We auctioned off a furniture piece every month that had 31 days and all of the proceeds was donated to Hope International.

  1. These pieces are amazing and I would have owned probably half of them had I found out about you sooner. I’m addicted.

  2. LOVE all of these pieces and everyone in between. I am still trying to have you paint and redo my bedroom furniture! Good luck in 2016! xo
