Many of us leave old, damaged or faded furniture to sleep in the attic, basement or garage ... We say to ourselves that one day, we will be able to fix them up and give them a new function. We don't want to get rid of them, because they belonged to a loved one!
What if we took the time this week to give a second life to one of these dust collectors? You might be surprised at what you can achieve!
To help you create your masterpieces, here are 15 inspirations!
1. An old chest of drawers transformed into an elegant chest of drawers
This piece of furniture is now much more modern and can find its place in the living room as well as in a foyer. And what about the much more vibrant color?
2. A cozy pet nest
By removing a few drawers, giving a few brushstrokes and adding a soft cushion, you can make you pet happy without spoiling your decor.
3. A new style for an old dresser
Paint + a little creativity and voila!

Instead of buying a new sideboard, try using old furniture!

Sometimes a sanding, a new varnish and a little paint makes all the difference.
