How to Make Your Furniture Look Like New

Making old furniture look new, isn’t as hard as may seem. If you have furniture that needs an update, whether it’s a tired family heirloom or an old-fashioned piece you picked up at a garage sale, consider these clever hacks to make it look new again.


Before refurbishing an old piece of furniture, think about how it relates to other pieces in the room. Once you determine its place in your desired aesthetic, you’ll have a better idea of how to change the finish. For example, if you want a dresser to be the focal point of the room, you could refinish it to let it stand out from its muted counterparts.

Equally, refinish your old furniture in a common, tame colour if you want it to blend in with other pieces in the room.


The same applies to reupholstering an old sofa or chair. If your couch has good structure and just needs fresh fabric, find one that complements your room colour scheme. We recommend using only two or three colours maximum to complete your palette.

If you’d like your sofa to steal the show, dress it up in a bright fabric you and your guests can’t help but notice. Be intentional with your colour choices to highlight or hide your sofa, depending on your preference.

After you’ve decided on a colour, add some fun finishing touches. Textiles like throw pillows, blankets, and rugs can add modern flair to an older piece of furniture. It’s also a good idea to add some vintage decorative items to match the antiques, creating a cohesive theme.
