Time for a Makeover…

…not for you, but for your out-dated furniture!

These are a few projects I have found that take an old piece of furniture and give it an update into a new beautiful piece. I haven’t tried one myself yet, but I can’t wait to! So if you have a worn down desk, table, or drawer that you’ve been thinking of getting rid of, go get some paint, and get creative!

Here are some before and after shots.

A few simple steps to follow when re-furnishing something:

  1. Sand it down
  2. Prime it with a coat of white paint
  3. Paint it your desired colour (once dry)
  4. Give the handles or hardware a new coat of paint where possible

Of course you have the freedom to do whatever you want with your piece, but I like the way this example used a decal to enhance the inside of the drawers and the interior.

Here are a few more ideas to get you started:
