Updating old furniture ideas

Beyond creating an instant accent piece, his technique allows you to easily cover roughed up edges or other damage.

Since I shared my sister’s first guestroom makeover and also the 2nd guestroom/nursery combo, I wanted to show you how we made over the furniture. So, here’s our day of furniture painting…all finished.

According to a Bankrate Study, open floor plans are on the top of the list when it comes to home buying and home ownership.

While you could always lay a nice cushion over your piece for a quick fix, this DIY version is well worth the challenge for a chic, one-of-a-kind finish.

Update the Hardware Maybe the only thing getting you down about your piece is the outdated hardware that clashes with your style.

Try replacing the hardware with a store-bought substitute, or DIY your own one-of-a-kind knob or drawer pull.

Instead of getting rid of your old, unwanted pieces, try them out somewhere else in your home—you might find the perfect fit for a different room!

Turn It Two-Toned Instead of a full paint job, offer your piece an interesting quick-fix by adding brightly colored paint to just the trim or other details to add a two-tone effect.

Waxing protects the top and gives it a nice luster.
