Learn how to love your home in this 30 day series about making small improvements to,
being grateful for and seeing the beauty in the home you have.
Welcome back to day 27 of our HOME SWEET HOME – 30 Days to Love Your Home series!
Part of loving your home is learning to spot the things that you don't necessarily love, but that could be awesome if they were just a wee bit different.
Maybe it's a table given to you by a family member that fits your space well, but doesn't go with your whole home color scheme.
Or maybe it's a cabinet you need to keep because you just can't afford something else right now.
In any case, I'm betting that you have at least one piece of furniture in your home right now that has great bones and could be amazing with a little help!
What to look for in a piece of furniture that you want to makeover
- Great bones. You want something that's fairly solid. If it's not, but you can easily repair it, that's okay too.
- A great shape. When you makeover a piece of furniture, the overall shape generally stays the same.
- Something you can paint. Paint and primer has come a long way, so you can paint almost anything. But make sure you do a little recon to see which paint will work best for your piece.
