“Reverse Pinterest”: This Online Group Shares Photos Of Furniture Brought Back To Its “Original Glory”

Published 2 years ago

Although Pinterest is the perfect platform for DIY’ers, sometimes they go overboard with their experiments and ruin things instead of making them beautiful.

There is even a subreddit called ‘Reverse Pinterest’ where people have started posting restored versions of furniture that have been “rescued from Pinterest-paint hell and restored to their original glory.” Check out some of their interesting posts in the gallery below.
