Furniture Facelifts: Innovative Ways to Give New Life to Tired Furniture Total Hits - 395  |  Hits Today - 0Rating:   Rating Average (1)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
Perk up tired, dull, and worn furniture! Fill your home with individually decorated chairs, tables, and dressers, and revel in the opportunity for showing off your creativity. Every one of these projects uses innovative techniques and offers wide scope for self-expression. Take that faded old chair, for example: paint the wood a springlike shade, with the softest patterns and textures, and give it a bright new cushion. Any cabinet could benefit from a coat of rich blue paint and styling that emphasizes the wood's grain. And, don't let your current pieces hold you back from indulging in a favorite hue or design that you thought might not fit in; this imaginative volume reveals the many ways that either subtle or full-blown changes to existing furniture can alter the whole look and result in a whole new living environment.
