15+ Amazing Furniture Makeovers


don’t know about you, but December 26th is the day all of the Christmas decor comes down.  It used to be that I thought my house felt so bare afterwards, but now I welcome the clean slate. 

Well, empty slate would be more accurate since the house isn’t clean.   Either way, it’s a chance for a fresh start.

Speaking of fresh starts, today some of the bloggers who brought you the 12 Days of Christmas Home Tours are sharing 15+ amazing furniture makeovers.
