4 Ways To Revamp Your Favorite Items

Spring is finally here! With spring comes a feeling of newness and a desire for a clutter free environment (spring-cleaning, anyone?). But for those of us with tight budgets or unsightly sentimental pieces, that’s easier said than done. Below are some of our favorite ways to revamp your old furniture and favorite keepsakes, courtesy of some great design bloggers!

1. Paint it
One of the simplest ways to revamp an item is with some paint. You can paint a variety of things such as chairs, doors, even lampshades! Check out this cool tutorial for an ombré bar cart, courtesy of Brittni  from Paper & Stitch Blog.

2. Cover it
A cheap way to revamp almost anything is by covering it. You can cover furniture or other items with fabric, wallpaper, contact paper, etc. If you go the contact paper route like Kaylee of The Blondielocks, you can take a $50 end table and make it look like a $500 end table! Kaylee took a basic white IKEA end table and revamped it with marble contact paper.

3. Frame it
Why hide your favorite jersey in the back of the closet, when you can frame it like Genevieve of Turned To Design! You can even frame other memorabilia such as flags, band t-shirts or tapestry for an aesthetically pleasing display.

4. Change it
Never got around to learning how to play that drum you bought 3 years ago, huh? Up-cycle it into a lamp like Lindsay did, on Makely. Your spouse and neighbors will thank you.
