I wanted this one a bit darker so I mixed in more of the dark poly and layered the nightstand with two more coats. I think it is amazing stuff and I just love the ease of it.

Several thin coats are much better than one thick coat….always! Here is another piece I did basically the same thing to. (also )….after…(Min Wax Poly Shades on the drawer fronts, Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in “Cream” on the rest) These were all very easy projects using 2 great products that don’t require a lot of prep work. Definitely an inexpensive & quick way to transform and update wood on a piece you may already own or one you might pick up at a garage sale or thrift store.

Update that pair of curtains by adding a few yards of trim — be it pom-pom trim, craft store ribbon, or a strip of colorful fabric.

Nothing beats a nice sanding, stain and refinish job but this is a great way to change up your furniture quickly & easily for fresh new look.

Don't have the money to buy a new sectional for the living room?

They are cheap, brightly colored, and already cut into squares!

You can sew them of course, but iron-on hem tape is again your friend.

(See also: Surprising Home Uses for Mayonnaise) Those old laminate countertops might be worn out and dated, but new countertops aren't cheap.

A great interim solution is to skim-coat your laminate countertops with a concrete product manufactured for this specific purpose.

So I’m going to show you a super easy way to skip those steps and still update wood furniture. The finish was nice enough just not the right shade for me.

Besides using Chalk Paint, I’m going to show you how to either refresh a piece of stained furniture or change the color completely. It did stay like this for a few months until I decided whether I would paint or refinish it. I wanted it a darker color of stain but didn’t want to go through that whole process. I blended these two shades until I came up with the color I wanted. I don’t think I ever just use anything as it comes.

One easy, old-fashioned, cheap, and non-toxic way to refresh wood is to rub in some mayonnaise! Simply apply the mayonnaise in a thin layer, and let it sit for a couple of hours before wiping it off.

The oil in the mayo helps to cover the water marks and brings out the depth in the wood.

Spray paint is a great way to revitalize old pieces of furniture that you're about ready to toss. These folding chairs look amazing with fresh coats of colorful spray paint, and these brassy builder-grade doorknobs now look way more upscale with a coat of bronze paint.
