#14: Refurbish Furniture
If you’ve recently walked your neighborhood or driven to the grocery store, chances are you’ve seen old furniture sitting by mailboxes and ready for the trash. Some of these pieces have fundamental issues that make them irreparable, but most of them need a good once-over. People are constantly getting rid of furniture that no longer match their interior vibe, too.
From painting to upholstery, there are so many options for getting a fresh look out of an old piece, and it’s an excellent exercise. The bonus of keeping these pieces out of landfills is just one of the many reasons to get started. Plus, you’ll have the creative control to add an addition to your home that goes well with your ambiance.
