Hey ladies! (And the few gents that follow me…) Have you painted any furniture lately? Y’all know that I’m usually working on jewelry boxes but I do some small furniture makeovers. Mostly end tables, coffee tables, and I’m currently working on a piano bench for the dining room that I hope to show you soon. But I dream! I dream about having a garage where I could do projects like these amazing Goodwill furniture makeovers that I’m sharing with you today.
I’ll start with one of my favorite Goodwill furniture photos. My daughter and I went thrifting for furniture for her new apartment a few years ago. She fell in love with this $25 French Provincial dresser and told me she thought we could get it into her PT Cruiser. I think I just laughed. But she did it! (I’m hoping she took a picture of the finished piece… she painted it green!)

5 Amazing Goodwill Furniture Makeovers
This first piece is a big, chunky piece of furniture that I see pretty often at Goodwill. They’re too big for our townhouse but I’d love to get my hands on one of these. Deborah spent $25 and turned this old dresser into a useful TV stand. She shared a before photo that included the ugly doors… don’t miss it!
BTW, this was the first piece of furniture she ever painted! What do you think?
Here’s another large piece of furniture that I’d LOVE to have… but no room! Jen turned it into a farmhouse style china cabinet, complete with shiplap!
She also shared how to keep the original mahogany finish from bleeding through the white paint.
These next three furniture makeovers are a little more my speed.
I could probably handle this small dresser project in my house. Plus, I LOVE mid-century modern.
Those legs!!! You’ll get the step by step tutorial when you click through to this furniture makeover.
This was a $4.50 Goodwill find that ended up on a front porch. I see glass top end tables and coffee tables pretty often.
Amy used a photo transfer medium to add a cute spring label to this little corner table. I have one almost exactly like it but I spray painted mine black. Turned out VERY different!
