In the last couple of years, I really took to furniture, in a big way.

Renting a home that’s already fully furnished can mean you don’t have any interest in furniture. At least, that was my story.

Then I decided, I can invest in some small pieces that I can use down the line.


20 Incredible Ideas For Refurbishing Old Furniture!

I invested in a little cabinet to store my fabric in and discovered some amazing furniture makeovers online and have been following the decor trend ever since!

Perfect Purple Cabinet

It’s a fabulous colour right?

There are so many amazing, colourful paints for working with furniture these days! Currently, my favourite is DecoArt Chalky Finish furniture paint or Everlong paint which doesn’t require finishing wax.

But it changes, depending on the project.
