“We’ve spent the entire year restoring our backyard. Not going to lie, it was pretty expensive!”

“Including clearance, garden furniture, a gazebo, a patio, a greenhouse, and a pond with its planting, we likely spent around $12,000.”

 

“I decided to polish this figure and the result was unexpected.”
“Before and after my marathon of a backyard project”
“I have a hobby: I buy Soviet watches in terrible condition and restore them.”
“A bit of an improvement”

“My wife bought this old junk and turned it into an Ikea-like cabinet.”
“I restored a classic guitar the best I could.”
“I just washed this table with pressured water.”
“This is how I changed the design of my bathroom.”
“The previous owner inherited a few of these but didn’t like cooking with them so he left them outside.”

“I counted 5 layers including navy, pink, and teal before it went back to normal.”
“Before and after — I’ve spent the last many weekends doing this project.”
“I finally got around to my bedroom door project — my personal spin on the Doors of Durin.”
“What I did to this old cabinet”
“The second life of an old Soviet toy truck”
“Before and after shots of our tiny backyard project”
“I’ve finally finished my restoration project!”
“It would’ve been easier to just buy a new stove but I decided to do this.”
“I saved $7,000 by resurfacing my pool myself!”
“Got this table for $5. Sanded off the old stain and put on some new legs.”
“A gorgeous $10 chair from the thrift store and a curtain for $2. The originality of this antique chair was beautiful but it really needed some love. Very pleased with my results!”
“I restored this watch.”

If you mess with the finish on a valuable antique piece of furniture, you can drastically devalue it.

#6 & #20 would have been better if they would have just sanded and stained instead of DI-whying it.
