Inheriting (or discovering) a piece of heirloom or antique furniture is great--as long as you love the piece. But even when you don't, we have a few ideas on how you can make the piece your own, and how you can make it work in your home, just as well as it worked in the home it came from. Better, even!
First up, decoupage--and hear us out. While the term decoupage often brings up images of hideous, floral-patterned tween rooms in the 80’s, there are chic ways to use this age-old crafting technique. Make a bold statement with a large-scale black and white print, and trim the image to fit the drawers of a bureau. Bonus points: at an average cost of only $15 to blow up a print, and another $10 for decoupage supplies, this is a budget way to create a statement piece.
