today’s first makeovers are all about an easy upgrade. normally we think of paint for a simple makeover, but these clever ladies both turned to something even simpler (but just as fun) to change their furniture: fuzzy throws. karen bertelsen of the art of doing stuff mastered the art of recovering a chair in 5 minutes by draping a lambswool throw over a rescued curbside chair. no stapling, upholstery- nada. just tucked into the seat of the chair and voila- a fuzzy new look without all the hard work. while a woolly look isn’t for everyone, i love the effortless way karen used something so soft and cozy to make over a roadside find. click here to read more about her insta-makeover.

the next fuzzy upgrade comes from michelle baldwin at every little thing. michelle picked up this 70s era telephone table on kijiji for only $50 and decided she wanted to give it a cozy, furry feel. after repainting the table in a crisp linen color, michelle replaced the knobs with hardware from anthropologie and finished the look with a a few yards of ivory mohair, found on sale for $16. great work, michelle!
