Garage Sale Makeovers Totally Impress Me!

I don’t know what it is about taking something that has seen better days and totally transforming it or improving it beyond its wildest dreams. Maybe it is the part of me that believes that you can find beautiful in anything if you look hard enough. Some of you call this process junking, thrifting, or going yard sale-ing. When you take your precious find and make it all shiny and new it can be called trash to treasure, upcycled, recycled, junk-tique… I just call it a garage sale makeover. I love these ideas and I can’t wait to hear what you think of them, too!

Garage Sale Makeovers that Wow!

Garage Sale Metal Fish Makeover by Crafts by Amanda | Garage Sale Makeovers that Wow!

Sometimes those totally off the wall finds that you see at a garage sale can actually become beautiful works of art with a little paint and tender loving care. Crafts by Amanda found these two fish statues  that were a little bland and made them into these coastal cuties.

How many Little Tykes plastic playhouses have you seen on the side of the road or at a yard sale that you’ve just passed by knowing it had seen better days. The Happier Homemaker says… “I’ll take it”. She did, she gave it a new coat of paint and even a plant and it has served her boys well for ages.

Adirondack Chair Makeover by The Gunny Sack | Garage Sale Makeovers that Wow!

The Gunny Sack is one smart cookie and knows that sometimes garage sale finds just need to be washed well, painted and accessorized. She knew that when she found this pair of adirondack chairs that had seen better days, that they were a worthy cause. I’d say she has a keen eye and I adore the color she chose to paint them. Those red chevron pillows are mighty cute, too!

Upcycled Vintage Door Beverage Station by Finding Home Farms | Garage Sale Makeovers that Wow!

Garage Sale Chair Makeover for a Summer Porch by Today's Creative Life | Garage Sale Makeovers that Wow!

Okay… it is official… I’m ready for warm weather and gatherings on the back porch. Today’s Creative Life spruced up her back porch on a time and I love how she took these chairs found at a garage sale, gave them a coat of paint and hung them for extra seating when needed. When they are not needed, there is loads of space to move freely on the porch and they have a little art on the walls so to speak. Really creative idea and I may have to try this one if I can find a pair of beauties like these.

Fabric Painted Bedroom Bench Makeover by Five Minutes for Mom | Garage Sale Makeovers that Wow!

You guys have to click on over and see the before on this project. It was definitely channeling the 90’s forest green vibe. Guess how Five Minutes for Mom was able to switch it from drab to fab? Painting the fabric and placing in her ultra serene bedroom that now has a smashing bench at the end of the bed. I really love this garage sale find and the end product is sweet!

I hope you have found something that is inspiring you to have fun at a garage or yard sale and find something to make your very own!
