Bright Side

20+ People Whose Magic Touch Can Turn Any Ugly Duckling Home Into a Gorgeous Swan

We spend a lot of time in houses and put a lot of effort into making them feel like home. But some people took their renovations to a whole new level, creating amazing projects that no one expected. We found some rooms and furniture that are so amazing, we couldn’t miss the chance to share them with you.

We at Bright Side were inspired by these 21 transformations that were done by ordinary people.

1. An old picnic table was renovated with fire to warm you up on chilly evenings.

2. “Finally have my very own balcony oasis.”

3. “My aching feet say I should’ve paid someone. My wallet disagrees.”

4. “After a 3-month-long upstairs renovation, this place looks unrecognizable.”

5. A stepfather built a bulldozer bed for his heavy equipment-obsessed stepson.

6. This stunning apartment is now waiting for its lucky new owner!

7. “After such an improvement, we never want to leave this place.”

8. This mattress got a second life as a bed swing.

9. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side.

10. Not only does this look better, but it’s also much safer.

11. From trash to treasure

12. “This very comfy loveseat was donated to me after a fire. A $30 cover made a huge difference.”

13. A mother and daughter completed this project with just $109.

14. A couple turned their dungeon into a home theatre.

15. We can’t believe this is the same room.

16. A man built a cool pool bridge for his friend with a water fountain feature underneath.

17. A jaw-dropping bathroom remodel

18. A coffee table made from crates

19. Couldn’t find any local stores selling pools so this guy decided to build his own.

20. Sometimes the coolest stuff comes from the trash.

21. A husband made a closet in the attic for his wife.

Have you ever tried to renovate a room yourself? What was the result? We’d love to hear about your experience!
