Begin by rummaging through your favorite antique store for the item you have in mind; be sure to keep an eye out for any good sales. Once you’ve selected and bought the piece, remove any old or outdated hardware. Next, sand the furniture with 150 grit sandpaper; this will smooth out your item and prepare it for a fresh layer of paint without damaging it. Of course, replenish any chipped corners with new wood, and exchange old-fashioned handles with accents that complement your personal style. Lastly, repaint your dresser or table with a high-gloss paint in the color of your choice. And, just like that, you can give your home a little upgrade.
