When it comes to furniture DIYs, most ideas are simply surface level. But these pieces didn't just get painted or stained — they got entirely new second lives. Trust us when we say you're about to be inspired to turn your old tub into a couch.
Before: A Neglected Stereo
This RCA Hi-Fi might be a find for retro lovers — but this one was gathering dust in the basement.
After: Play Kitchen
Colorful fabric, a coat of paint and three old turners transformed the dusty piece into a kitchen any kid would love.
Before: A Rusty Waste
We're sure this cast-iron tub was luxurious in its hay day, but this piece was in total abandon and a dusty, dirty mess before its revamp.
After: A Cozy Seat
Now this outdoor sofa reminds us of the chic couch from Breakfast at Tiffany's. The surface was restored, one side was cut out, and a colorful array of cushions were added to turn it into a comfortable reading spot.
Before: A Dated Armoire
This bedroom storage unit had great bones, making it strong and functional, but seriously lacked when it came to style. In other words, it had a case of the boring blues.
After: A Country Pantry
By replacing the mirrors with transparent screen doors allowed the piece to still offer all of the storage, but with a decorative touch. Now, white containers and wooden utensils shine through and provide a homey kitchen vibe.
Before: A Boring Dresser
This wooden, six-drawer dresserwas ... fine. But definitely didn't make a statement or go above-and-beyond in the style department.
After: A Storage-Savvy Kitchen Island
An extended butcher block counter and wheels turned this standard item into a standout piece with tons of drawer space for cooking essentials.
Before: Dated Dresser
When choosing a dresser to transform into a bathroom vanity, height is crucial — you're going to bend over it to wash your face every night, after all. This piece fit the height requirement, but not the style one.
After: Sleek Bathroom Vanity
A coat of shiny grey paint gives the exterior new life and a chrome faucet adds glamour. Drawers offer storage for towels, hand soap, and toothbrushes.
