How To Transform Second Hand Furniture Easily

Transforming second hand furniture is an easy and economical way to revamp a space! In this article, you're going to learn the best places to find second hand furniture along with our best tips of what to look for when buying used furniture. We'll provide you with step by step instructions on How To Refinish and Updated Thrift Store Furniture properly so YOU can repurpose and customize your own furniture and save some money! 

Many moons ago, before the chalk paint® craze and before I had a handle on painting furniture, I was thumbing through the Craigslist ads in search of a used kitchen table. I had two young boys at the time and I knew that I didn't want to spend a lot of money on an old table that may or may not catch some abuse over the next few years.

But, just because I didn't want to spend a ton of money on a second hand piece of furniture that didn't mean that I didn't want to have a nice table for my family to look at and eat at.

Without too much searching on Craigslist, I discovered a used farmhouse style table and four chairs offered for the low price of $65. I snatched them up, ran to the store and bought myself 12 cans of white spray paint (smack forehead), too thick of a foam pad to reupholster those chairs and made plenty of mistakes along the way gave the table the royal scratch down to get that perfect farmhouse distressed and worn look (sarcasm).

What Is Dry Brushing With Paint?

In short, dry brushing is a painting technique that uses such a small amount of paint on your paint brush that it feels almost "dry" to the touch. When you use minimal paint on your brush and apply light pressure, the dry brush effect leaves a light and scratchy brush stroke that resembles texture.

Dry brush painting is a furniture painting technique that you typically apply right before you seal your project. Dry brushing adds interest and highlights the gorgeous details of a piece. The reason I LOVE dry brushing the most is because the process goes so quickly! But be prepared. Your friends and family are going to think it took you hours to create your finish! Do you tell them or keep that to yourself, ... that's up to you! ;)

I confess. I love a mis-matched room full of colorful patterns, textures and white walls. Are you just as intrigued by Bohemian design as I am? Boho styled decor looks effortless and creative and has a sense of sophisticated whimsy.

If you're wanting to incorporate more Bohemian style into your bedroom or home, throw pillows are an easy and inexpensive way to play around with colors.

If you're new to mixing prints, Domino's Best Bohemian Decorating Ideas suggests starting small as you build up your boho home decor. Use different printed accessories like rugs, throw pillows and hanging tapestry. This allows you to mix colors and patterns without giving in to a hard design commitment.
