Updating a Dresser

"This bedroom set was in my daughter’s room until a couple of years ago, when we moved it into our master bedroom," Jann explains at Newton Custom Interiors. Although this was a very well-made, sturdy dresser, the top had sustained some water damage at some point, and then there was the faux wicker on those upper drawers....things being what they were, Jann decided it was time to update this dresser.

Plastic Container Craft Project

Sometimes you just have to be crafty. Here's a cute little upcycling project for one of those times. It would be a terrific rainy day project for kids, too. Sherri from About Family Crafts issued a challenge to her friends to upcycle a plastic food container, and this is how she participated in that challenge. Her container of choice once held margarine.

Restyled Office Furniture

This large, sectional office furniture has been part of Denise's home for the past 10 years. "It has seen hours years of homework, work projects, video game battles and has the wear and tear to prove it," she explains at Chaotically Creative. When Denise redid the family office recently, this desk set got a completely new look.

This nifty headboard project was created by Jen from Scissors and Spatulas for Somewhat Simple. It's got a cool backstory. The forgotten, neglected headboard once was her husband's childhood bed. "It was going to be tossed to the curb until I claimed it for myself because I had a vision," Jen tells us. "Being the little scavenger that I am, I hauled it home and rescued it!"
