By now, it’s obvious that I’m a BIG fan of 2nd and 3rd life furniture, especially when it has great ‘bones’. Meaning, that just because a great piece of furniture is intended or built/finished one way, doesn’t mean it has to STAY that way forever.
That being said, occasionally we also have the issue of finding the RIGHT piece of furniture or decor to finish a space, and that’s where the more extensive DIY portion of what we do comes in. When we were building up our entryway nook I realized that we were never going to find storage crates the exact size we needed them to be, so out of pure necessity, we figured out how to build some!
It’s not like I go crazy about it, because life gets busy and I don’t have all the time in the world to be refinishing and revamping every little thing I place in my house, but there ARE items that I know can make a huge statement, with just a little bit of TLC.
You can check out the new Cabot Premium Wood Finishes online or exclusively in Lowe’s stores. There are lots of traditional, as well as on-trend colors to choose from.
I’m a sucker for personalized little makeovers and DIY projects like these from time to time, because they’re fast, easy and can have a huge impact in your space. Plus, just changing out a few features, or adding a certain color paint or stain to something can really tell people a lot about your personality and homes overall style.
Do you have a thrifted, handed down or just old, outdated piece of furniture that you’ve decided to keep and restyle, instead of getting rid of? OR, What sort of things have you repurposed, altered, or created to help customize a space in your home?
We’d love to hear!
