How To Make Over Your Furniture On A Budget

  • Paint it up!One of the easiest and most affordable ways to make over your furniture is to give it a fresh coat of paint. Choose a color that complements your existing decor or go for a bold and dramatic look with a bright pop of color. Make sure to clean and sand the surface before applying paint for the best results. I have shared so many tips and painted makeovers here on my blog. Check out my 10 tips on how to paint furniture to get started HERE.
  • Get creative with fabricAnother way to spruce up your furniture is to add new fabric. Whether it’s reupholstering your couch or adding a new tablecloth to your dining table, the fabric can give your furniture a whole new look. Look for affordable options like clearance fabrics, thrifted sheets, or even repurpose clothes you no longer wear.


  • Refurbish and re-purposeInstead of buying new furniture, consider refurbishing and repurposing your old pieces. A coat of varnish or polish can restore the shine on wooden furniture, while new knobs and handles can give a cabinet or dresser a fresh look. You can also repurpose furniture pieces for different uses, like turning an old door into a headboard or an old suitcase into a coffee table. You can find many of my repurposed projects HERE

Apply wallpaper to the inside of a bookshelf, dresser drawer, or the back of a cabinet for a unique touch. Look for removable wallpaper, so you can easily change it up if you get tired of the look.
