Don’t be too quick to throw out or dismiss old furniture.
With the help of some common items found online or at your neighbourhood hardware store, it’s easy to transform tired chairs and cupboards into funky statement pieces.
Here are our top picks to work that makeover magic:
1. Spray Paint
There’s no better way to make your furniture look new again. We especially love the glamour gold spray paint imparts to simple household items like table lamps, and how plain metal chairs painted in pastel colours can instantly brighten up a living space.

3. Wallpaper or Contact Paper
The possibilities with these are almost limitless. You could, for example, make your bedside drawers match your room décor perfectly by using the same wallpaper, or give your kitchen table a faux marble finish.
