DIY for Dummies

We all get bored of the same look over time, so having something that has lost its shine, or has become very outdated gives you that perfect excuse to get your hands dirty! It is very hard not to take the easy road and go buy what everyone else is buying, something brand new, leaving you no other option than to toss that old object away.
Little do you know that a few simple steps for a do it yourself project isn’t as hard as they look! With just the right patterns of fabric or the right colour of stain/paint, it can make a HUGE difference – and yes, of course also the right accessories to finish it off!

Upholstering that old chair in your basement can be fun, invite a friend over and get to work. You can easily create a beautiful accent chair that no one will be able to buy in stores!


There are many ways you can love that old piece of furniture again without breaking the bank! Refinishing something gives it that custom one-of-a-kind look, and gives you something to show off at those dinner parties!

Some ideas are to stop in at a second hand store and find an old coffee table, bench, or chair and buy it for cheap (if you don’t already have anything lying around at home).

It is very easy to take that first look at something and think that can never be beautiful, but if you put your mind to it, it WILL look amazing!
