Over the past few years, there has been a huge uptick in people deciding to DIY old furniture into something new. They will paint over perfectly good pieces of antique furniture just for the sake of customization. It’s truly horrible, because it ruins high-quality pieces that would be worth much more if they had been left alone. Thankfully, there is a group of people who restored furniture to its former glory. Here is a compilation of images taken from a subReddit called Reverse Pinterest.
A Green Changing Table Transformed Into a Beautiful Chest of Drawers
The “before” dresser to the left was being used as a changing table. It had been painted green, but seems to have been fading over the years. On the right, you can see how it looks after it has been sanded. It will look much better once the handles are replaced as well. I just wish we saw a photo of it inside of the house, rather than the workshop. Hopefully the new owner will enjoy this piece to hold their clothing for years to come. (via Pinterest)
