Updating traditional dining room furniture Free mobile porn chatrooms no login
I LOVE transforming ugly, forgotten, or outdated pieces into beautiful assets for any space.But sometimes painting a piece of furniture isn’t the best idea or just isn’t an option. .) But even if you “can’t” paint a piece of old or outdated furniture for whatever reason, you don’t have to live with it the way it is!I had no shortage of ideas for the kitchen and other rooms in the house but the dining room was another story.Two years ago I designed and installed a spectacular Poggenpohl work area and created an open plan eat-in kitchen that could seat 10 comfortably for dinner.Use it to add Greek key detailing, a chevron pattern, or even simple lines!Wrapping it around the legs is also a fun way to use washi tape on furniture. If you don’t mind a piece getting a little “holey,” furniture tacks (nailheads) or pushpins can be a great way to give a piece of furniture a new look!Continuing with the Venetian theme, I bought a huge Murano chandelier at auction which arrived in a million pieces and had to be assembled before it was installed.Miraculously, we figured out how it went together and hung it up successfully. I went on to other decorating projects, as I still did not have a clear sense of how I wanted the room to look.
(Or maybe you have a husband who is sick and tired of you painting every surface in your house. It comes in a million colors and patterns, and removes without damaging the surface.Hardware is seriously like jewelry for your furniture. When we renovated our kitchen four years ago, we insisted on saving the original, built-in china cabinet because we’re doing the best we can to maintain the vintage charm of the home.So we kept the walnut-colored finish and just updated the hardware to match that of our new cabinets. Now we have the original piece with a slightly updated look.I had the feeling I wanted an italian theme to the room, as I had purchased a lovely 18th century Italian corner cabinet that was hand painted in a Venetian style.With the house being a Mediterranean style villa, it just seemed to go with the house.
Everything neutral was the fashion at the time, so beige walls, beige Stark carpet, brown furniture–when I look at it now it was just as boring as could be.
