Reupholstering and painting furniture is one of the easiest ways of getting unique furniture without the hefty price tag. I can honestly say that I have bought only three pieces of furniture new for my little house. Everything else I have inherited, ‘borrowed’ from my Dad or Nan, given to me by friends, or bought from secondhand stores, garage sales, and opp shops. I even found a table on the side of the road! What I have ended up is a house full of unique pieces that reflect my personality and tastes. As my tastes and styles evolve and change, so does my house but I always follow one rule- keep it feeling hyggelig, a danish term for that warm, cosy, comfortable feeling you get.
