My favorite places to find furniture and decor on a dime are:
It’s like a treasure hunt searching the clearance sections. You can score some great finds that may just need a few touch ups or some new paint.
-Never underestimate the power of a new coat of paint or new upholstery. You can easily transform the entire look of a piece of furniture for less than $20.
-You can easily jazz up an old bookcase by applying some adhesive wallpaper to the back of the shelves.
-Instantly make a piece of furniture look more modern or rustic by changing out the hardware. You can find some affordable and unique knobs and handles on Etsy.
-If your wooden furniture or cabinets are a little scuffed or scratched, this scratch cover can make them look brand new again.
-You can easily change out the legs of tables and chairs to keep up with the latest trends. I know that the hairpin legs are very popular right now.
-Want a table with a marble top but can’t afford it? Cover a Formica or plastic table with marble contact paper for the same affect.
