The internet has no shortage of DIY inspiration, but it's helpful to have a few centralized sources with reliable voices. If it's a furniture makeover you're working on, know that the series Restyling 101, organized by Lia Fagan of the blog Mod Nest, includes tips, tricks, and detailed explanations from five doyennes of the domain.

The Restyling 101 series includes help for distressing wood furniture, upholstering, freehand painting, stenciling, and spray painting.

The five women offering their expertise include Amanda Brown of Spruce Austin (who also made a great video about upholstery) and Kristen F. Davis, professional decorative painter.

Their handiwork can be seen above — and you can also access the list of posts through Mod Nest. On the site you can also sign up for a free e-book compiling all the information.
