Whether it’s an old family heirloom or a fabulous thrift store find, up cycling an old chair is a great way to add a unique piece to your room for a lower cost. Depending on the design, you may find that you can actually do the work yourself. Even if you need some help from a pro, you’ll have a unique accent unlike any other that fits your style perfectly.

To complement your updated furniture, bring in a vintage cart and turn it into a beverage station for your family, your guests or just for you. Keep it stocked with the makings of a great cocktail or some simple kid-friendly refreshers to create a go-to spot in your home.
