Best Kids Furniture Before & Afters

Best of 2013

New Years is all about new potential so it's fitting that as we say "goodbye" to 2013 and "hello there" 2014 we salute readers who saw new potential in old furniture. Not only did they have vision, they executed their plans beautifully. Here are ten favorites:

  1. Before & After: Brittan's Chair for the Generations
  2. Before & After: A Fresh Look for a $5 Thrift Store Dresser
  3. Before & After: Simple IKEA Wooden Bed Gets a Luxe Upholstered Look
  4. Before & After: Kid's Corner Gets a Mini (Mario!) Makeover
  5. Before & After: DIY Herringbone Dresser
  6. Before & After: A Rocking Chair for Mom
  7. Before & After: Obsolete Crib Makes a Fantastically Functional Set of Shelves
  8. Before & After: Rocking Chair Makeover for a New Generation
  9. Before & After: Boring IKEA Billy Bookshelf to Rad Reading Bench
