DIY to Try: Embroider Your Furniture

At this point in the game it seems that everyone is up for purchasing an old piece of furniture and giving a makeover a try. We've painted them, we've stained them, we've antiqued the hell out of them and the list goes on. So what's next? How about embroidery? Yes, I think so.

Although the idea isn't exactly new, it isn't seen on every page of every home decor magazine (yet) and we doubt it will catch on in the same way that ombre dresser drawers have. That said, we still greatly adore this simple idea that helps out those of us who aren't talented enough to stencil an octopus on our found furniture items.

We checked in over at Design*Sponge and found this lovely cabinet transformation. The piece was simple and perfectly nice looking as is, but this hand stitched design has made it drool-worthy for sure. It would be easy enough to do with almost any pattern and a trip to your local craft store. Do you like the look? Let us know below!
