10 Furniture Pieces For Your Home
Usually this time of the year, most people add an update to their homes. Maybe a new bedspread, new drapes, or a new table - whatever it may be, fall is a perfect time to add new pieces to your home.
1. MILK PAINTED NIGHTSTAND
With some inexpensive milk paint, you can give that nightstand in your bedroom a antique or vintage look. Use sandpaper to give the original nightstand a smooth surface before painting it. Milk paint comes in form of powder so you will need warm water to mix the powder. After applying the first coat of paint and letting it dry, apply petroleum jelly on the nightstand, especially around the knobs, handles and corners. Finish off with the second and third coat of paint.
2. SHABBY CHIC PORCH
A great way to make a first impression is decorating your porch. Adding distressed window frames and door frames can add a welcoming tone to your front door. Don't forget to add some potted plant to complete the look.
3. ELEGANT SIDEBOARD
Distressed furniture doesn't always have to be in beach homes. You can definitely have a formal setting and one piece of furniture that goes well with the rest of the pieces but also stands out at the same time.
4. DINING ROOM SET
If you want to save a couple hundred dollars, you can make your dining room set vintage also. You can probably find some of these pieces at a local thrift shop. Add matching china to complete the look.
5. RUSTIC HEADBOARD
Create a mood for the bedroom by adding a rustic headboard. You can even use two old doors to make it more one-of-a-kind.
6. VINTAGE CHANDELIER
This will be a great addition to the contemporary design of the dining room set you my have already purchased.
7. ENTRYWAY FURNITURE
If you've got the opportunity to give the entryway a good look, do it. Its such a great way to welcome your guests and let people know what your taste is really like. You can find the different pieces from any home goods store and even some thrift shops.
8. METAL FURNITURE
Not too many people go this route so you'll definitely have something different in your backyard. Its a great addition if you have a particular theme to your backyard.
9. DISTRESSED KITCHEN CABINETS
Distressed pieces literally go hand in hand with any other furniture piece. You just have to be smart about picking the right color and piece of furniture in the same area. You can even add distressed kitchen cabinets to the home.
10. CHEST OF DRAWERS
A chest of drawers that has a vintage look is a great statement piece to the rest of the room.
