We’ve all seen the Pinterest posts where someone finds an absolutely hideous piece of furniture and miraculously turns it into a completely respectable and even enviable addition to any room. How do people even do that?! I usually have the best intentions with my thrift store finds, but it takes more than a fresh coat of paint to fix most things. In the video below, we get the inside scoop on how to makeover a thrift store chair! It’s all about the prep work. Go into the store with an idea of what you want already in mind! That way you make sure to get the right chair, not just anything that looks like it has “potential.” Once the chair (or other item) is purchased, take the time to prep the surfaces for painting, and seal it up! Check out the step by step video below, with two stunning examples of major thrift store upgrades!
