Here are three quick tips:
- Clean it: A little elbow grease goes a long way. Does the item have really good bones, but looking a little dull under all those layers of dust from hiding out in someone’s attic for years? Give it a thorough clean to uncover its hidden beauty and make it shine.
- Paint it: Painting an old, worn item will breathe new life into it. Love the shape of that old, oak side table, but looking to decorate in a more modern color scheme? Paint it your favorite shade of turquoise and add a jeweled drawer knob! Instant fab!
- Re-purpose it: Just because it was an armoire in a previous life, doesn’t mean you can’t tweak it into something more suitable to your lifestyle. Add some shelving and baskets to turn it into a kitchen pantry cupboard or perhaps create toy storage for the living room.
