Trash To Treasure: Revamp Your Home With Vintage Pieces

There are several ways that you can choose to revamp the vintage pieces that you may have in your home in order to create a new look that goes with the decor that you prefer. Perhaps you have a set of old lamps that may have belonged to your Mother or even an Aunt, consider purchasing something as simple as a new lampshade in order to give your lamp a more modern and trendy look. If the lamp has a wooden base, then you may choose to paint it in a color that goes with your decor so that it fits in perfectly and adding a new shade can make it all like brand new.

If you are lucky enough to have some pieces of furniture that have been passed down from a generation or so then you'll be happy to know that you can also give it a facelift in order to create a new look for it. You may consider stripping the old finish off of it and re-staining it with a lighter or even darker stain so that it fits into your home. Many are choosing to paint furniture using chalk paint and staining gels so that it is not only the color that they desire but also has a look that is still vintage but also fresh. Beds, dressers, armoires, chest of drawers and even vanities can be transformed by painting and staining.

Vintage decor has made a huge comeback and people are using it in their homes in droves. However, if you want to transform some of the items you can always purchase affordable items such as spray paint in order to change the color of many pieces. Metal vintage pieces can be spray painted any color you choose and you can even choose a spray paint that helps prevent rusting. You can even make that vintage metal patio set look new again so that it provides the joy you are looking for on your patio.
