Makeovers can make such a huge difference, not just for people, but also for furniture. This Upcycled DIY Deck Furniture project gives a rocking chair and outdoor couch a makeover to reinvigorate it and make it look brand new. This furniture was full of scratches and generally worse for it's wear. By refinishing the wood and giving it a new paint job, this upcycled furniture now looks brand new, for only a fraction of the price of new furniture. You can do your own furniture makeover; just look to this DIY tutorial for inspiration.
From the blogger: "I scored this old wooden furniture set at an estate sale and knew immediately what I was going to do with it! We desperately needed deck furniture so I got out the outdoor paint and got to work finding outdoor cushions! After sanding everything down I put on two coats of exterior primer and then three coats of exterior paint and then another two coats of sealant! So far, it has been holding up well to everything nature has to throw at it and its very comfortable!"
