Easy Peasy Transformation

When you’re broke, you’ll take what you can get but that doesn’t mean you can’t transform say a dress in to something gorgeous and trendy.


This is what my side tables looked like before.

And now after.

D.I.Y. side table

So much better right?

Slap on a coat of paint, screw on some new knobs and do something funky to the top. Apply the same principle to old out of date furniture. Refinishing furniture is a fun weekend project that doesn’t take much time and is rather affordable. If you go to your local paint store and ask for mistint paint they’ll sell you a gallon for under $10! That’s it for paint that was almost unnoticeably different than what the customer wanted.

Antique shops and garage sales are great for finding one-of-a-kind knobs that look super chic for just pennies.

Now go throw down a drop cloth, grab that ugly desk and sand that baby down. Slap on a coat of paint and presto! Let your imagination go wild, it’s so cheap and easy that you can always change the look.

Here’s some refinished furniture to inspire.

Happy D.I.Y.!
