And yet, while new furniture pieces are being made by the thousands (usually out of pressboard and veneer, it seems) people are throwing out good quality, solid wood furniture because they just don’t like “the look” anymore.
With the help of chalk paint (and an idea) I like take one person’s so-called trash and turn it into a newly refreshed piece for someone to love.
The best part is that while saving gorgeous antique pieces from their end at the local garbage dump, I’m also opening up different options for your next furniture purchase.
Sure, you could hit up your local Homesense for their $1000 “distressed” and “antique” piece, or you could look through my selection of revived solid wood furniture to get the exact look that complements your decor. (And for a fraction of the cost!)
So when you’re ready to buy your next piece of furniture, look to a local furniture refresher/refinisher to see what they have in their warehouse. Or take a look around your own house for something that can be given new life with a fresh coat of paint or a new colour!
