I'd love to know some inexpensive ideas for sprucing up old furniture. Got any? —Michelle
You don't need to ditch your beloved furniture. Why? Because with just a few simple tricks, your chairs, desks, and tables will get their much-needed pick-me-ups — and what's more, you'll save money for more important stuff (like a lot of pizza). To give an older piece a little more interest, paint the legs a bright color. To upgrade the surface of a dresser or nightstand, add a few graphic decals. And to make anything and everything look that much more luxe, spray paint it a metallic hue like silver or gold. That's it! Go forth and furniture.
