4 Quick Ways to Refurbish Old Furniture

 |  Furniture Tips

Is your old furniture looking just that: old? The good news is you don’t have to spend lots of money and invest in new furniture  – you can give it a fresh, new look with our DIY tips. It’s quick, doable and cost-effective – and it’s becoming increasing popular. We share our tips on giving your furniture that new lease of life.

  1. New Furniture Fixings: Door Knobs or Door Legs

Making a small change to furniture such as swapping the door knobs or door legs will have a big effect. For a modern yet fun appearance, make every door knob different! We have a vast range of choice available.

  1. Change It Up

If you furniture has door knobs already, or if it doesn’t, give it a new appearance and add door handles instead! SCF Hardware have a vast range of pull door handles to choose from.

  1. Paint It!

White furniture is still a popular trend, and it’s one that easy to achieve. An item of furniture can be transformed into one that could be new with a lick of paint! This is a great approach if your room is being completely decorated and you want the furniture to match. Wooden furniture can be transformed with Rubio Monocoat, a revolutionary wood oil that masks scratches and gives it a long-lasting sheen.

  1. Add Features

Adding wooden mouldings to furniture can change the style completely. Paint decorative mouldings such as floral wood appliques to add colour to furniture or transform your contemporary fitting with a scroll applique for a traditional look.
