The best furniture makeovers are not necessarily the most over the top. A little paint and some new hardware can make Goodwill and Craigslist finds look like they’re straight off the showroom floor. Take for example these 12 makeovers, each is as fresh as a spring day. 

Lexi’s dresser makeover (pictured above) was inspired by Benjamin Moore Paint Strips. However, she made her own custom colors with some white and green paint she had on hand. She simply mixed them together to create the graduated colors. 

Not only did Leigh make over her Craigslist find, she also made over the little alcove which it now calls ‘home.’
