1. Bold velvet chair makeover

Doing a makeover on a piece of furniture is one of my favorite DIY furniture ideas. So when you see the before and after of this accent chair, it’s almost like a magical transformation took place! The left side was looking so worn and tattered, while the right side looks so much more fresh and stylish – I just love the gold and black velvet finish that it ended up with.

It goes to show what a little bit of re-imagining can do with something that may have looked outdated before. This accent chair will now look stylishly bold in any room!
