Furniture Finishing Finesse
Have more imagination than cash? Simple treatments for unfinished and vintage furniture prove that some beauty really is skin-deep.
Dress Up a Dresser With Color
If you can handle sandpaper and a paintbrush, even dumpy hand-me-downs are simple to refinish.
Everybody has one: A hand-me-down piece of furniture that, frankly, you'd love to hand back. But before you toss it or pass it on to someone else, give the item one last look. If it's a solid piece with nothing wrong structurally, you'll be amazed at how far a little cosmetic work will go. Pick out new paint and new hardware, add elbow grease, and that once-worthless chest of drawers can become something stunning to add to your room -- instead of something you hide in the attic.
