Redo your room! Freshen up tired furniture

 
While we’d love to redecorate our bedrooms every summer, there’s one thing that tends to get in the way: budget. That’s why we’re big on takin’ what we’ve got and transforming it into something fantastically fresh. Think these projects might be out of your league? Think again! If we can do it, you totally can, too.

 

New knobs. Who knew?

The easiest way to give your dresser a li’l oomph is to replace the knobs. Would you believe there are stores that specialize in selling the coolest drawer pulls you’ve ever seen? Look one up, or go hunting through antique stores, home improvement stores or a unique boutique like Anthropologie. A little finagling with a screw driver will have you grinning at your handiwork in minutes.

 

Sand it down

For a bigger project, try hauling your furniture to the garage or driveway. Sand down the current finish until your work surface is nice and smooth. Then head to a hardware store to pick out a new wood stain or paint color. Follow the directions to get the look you want, and ask for help form the knowledgeable pros at these stores if you want some insider insight. Let it dry, then move it back in!

 

Get fancy

If you really want a room that screams your name, it might be time to pull out the big guns. A mosaic backboard or mirrored drawers can make your room instantly new and 100-percent Y-O-U. For projects like these, you’ll want to go through some interior decorating magazines or websites to score some stellar ideas. Then, take your notions to a home improvement store and let the experts help ya come up with a game plan.

 

If you could redo your room however you wanted, what would it look like?
