A fundamental item in the decoration of environments are the furniture, they alone can give an UP to the space, with their shapes, lines, textures and colors. But those beautiful sofas that look like a soap opera room or armchairs and chairs are not always affordable, most of the time they are expensive, some are very expensive, so that dreamed decoration for the living room or bedroom has to be postponed. Wrong who thinks so.
Today the fashion of customization has also invaded our homes, we see several times that chair from grandma’s time being redesigned with just a paint job and a new upholstery, and the most amazing thing: being sold at the price of new furniture, if not more expensive. Just like grandma’s chair, any piece of furniture, the old one you have, but don’t want to let go due to quality or just attachment, can become a super modern piece and make a difference in the space in which it is placed.
Today brought some amazing examples of how to renovate and transform that old piece of furniture into one with modern design and the best, exclusive.
How to renovate and transform old furniture
If the chosen furniture will be renovated with paintings, some care must be taken. As they are old furniture they can have a high value if it is in good condition, as we know, old furniture has much more quality than these “disposables” we have nowadays, so if it spoils, you won’t even get a lot of money with it.
Before painting, correct all imperfections and clean well, remove all dust and dirt, if there are termites, put an end to them all because if you receive the painting with a dirty surface, in addition to a bad finish, it will have a short shelf life.
These furniture above are one of the great trends in decoration. Today it is very easy to find them for sale, both renovated and new, some produced in materials other than wood and which cost a fortune.
If that sofa or armchair upholstery is faded, with an old and outdated appearance, there is no need to get rid of it. Nothing like a nice paint job and new upholstery won’t do it. As mentioned before, due to this tendency to reuse old furniture, prints are also in great variety. Take your furniture in a quality tapestry, just a new print and your furniture will have a new look.
Customizing Old and Used Furniture – Old Table
What to do with an old table? If the top is all spoiled, twisted over time, you soon think it has no function. Mistaken! With a lot of creativity, the table below was transformed with one of the most fashionable elements in the decoration: Portuguese tile. The renovation required only tiles of the same size, in this case 20cm x 20cm, and white glue, which we use at school.
All you need to do is leave the table surface clean for the piece to fix well and it is recommended to do a pre-assembly to assemble a really cool composition. Then just paste it piece by piece and that’s it. If there is room left on the table, take it to a carpenter to remove.
