Filling your dream home with brand-new furniture can cost an arm and a leg…and maybe even your firstborn child.
Now I ask you: what”s the point of spending your hard-earned cash on overpriced furniture when you can find the perfect pieces at a thrift store? Sure, the idea of decorating your home with old, sometimes damaged furniture may not sound that all that appealing, but with a little work, thrift store finds can take on a whole new life.
For proof, check out this amazing project. You won”t be shopping for brand-new furniture anytime soon.
This was the old wooden hutch one DIYer found at a Habitat for Humanity ReStore.
She started out by sanding down the top and bottom halves of the hutch.
She then painted the top half of the hutch a bright white.
She decided not to paint the counter of the bottom half white, and instead stained it a dark walnut hue.
For extra shine, she added layers of polyurethane.
She then removed the drawers and doors and began painting them white.
Painter”s tape came in handy.
Once all the painting was completed, it was time for the finishing touches.
She spray-painted the hardware that came with the hutch a nickel color to match the rest of the kitchen”s hardware.
It was finally time to reassemble everything!
And once she”d added all the necessary supplies…
Her hutch makeover was complete!
That hutch is barely recognizable! The next time you see that perfect piece of furniture in the thrift store, don”t pass it by just because it”s a little damaged. Get in the DIY spirit and make it your own!
