“I knew that I could turn this piece of garbage into a nice thing.”
“My copper sink changed its color but I cleaned it with a mild detergent, apple cider vinegar, and a thin layer of toothpaste.”
“I purchased 3 skillets for $6 in total. Quality cookware was hidden under a thick layer of rust and dirt.”
“I made a Harry Potter themed dresser for my niece.”
A trash can makeover:

“I just had to soak this pot overnight in detergent made for grills and ovens.”
“I restored a mid-50s highchair that my grandma used with my mother. Now we can give it to my sister, who just had her first baby.”
“We’ve just purchased a power washer, and this was our first project. We cleaned our 20-year-old bench.”
“My mom wanted to buy a vintage mixer and I found a one that still worked for $5 at a thrift shop. I had to work hard to fix it and give it to my mom for Christmas.”
This car looks like brand-new now:

“I restored a Louis Vuitton bag that I bought for $75.”
It turned out that the teddy bear was never brown.
“I refurbished these Corcoran jump boots.”
“I bought this silver sugar bowl for $3. This is what it looked like after a good polish.”
“I bought the exact replica of a vintage Herman Miller Eames lounge chair. I had to work on it a bit, but it looks like new now.”
“This oven was so dirty that I had to use putty knives and razor blades instead of cleaning products to clean it.”
“I washed the rug that was left behind by the old homeowners. I had no idea the design was this intricate.”
“It was a real challenge to make this old toy look good again.”
“I’m over halfway done with restoring this leather sofa. The difference is pretty dramatic, right?”
What a professional restoration looks like:
“I still don’t believe that I managed to get the seats that clean.”
“I got this old retro table at a garage sale for $2. It looked like a real Frankenstein, made of cheap wood. I needed 2 days to bring it back to life.”
