Home Sweet Home on a Budget: Dining Furniture Updates

Hello, everyone!  I’m Ruth, visiting from A House in Holland.  I enjoy stopping by Remodelaholic every Saturday to share budget-friendly decor tips from around blogland.  This month, the focus is on dining rooms, and today I’m going to show you some great ideas for dining room furniture updates you can do yourself.

Before I do, though, I just want to take a minute to remind you about the upcoming Dining Room Linkup.  On the last Saturday of the month (June 30th), Cassity and I invite you to linkup any of your recent projects that involve the dining room.  If you’ve updated your decor, redone your floors, hung new curtains, reorganized your china cabinet, made a centerpiece, or done anything else to your dining room, get ready to link a blog post about it.  I’ll feature some of the outstanding projects the following Saturday.

Now, back to dining room furniture.  When it comes to furnishing a dining room, it’s hard to get by without a table and chairs.  Extra storage in the form of a hutch, sideboard, or some other cupboard is nice, too.  Sounds simple, right?  Right, unless you’ve ever tried to shopping for those items.  A brand-spankin’ new dining room set can cost thousands of dollars.  Ouch!  Luckily, there are bloggers out there who have found ways to make classy updates to the furniture they already had or acquired second-hand.  Take a look at the following DIY updates.

First up is one from our very own Cassity, right here at Remodelaholic.  Remember when she transformed this ugly china hutch with paint and new cabinet doors?

At Crafty Scrappy Happy, a ho-hum table got a fresh coat of paint and more personality with vinyl lettering.

I absolutely love what White Place Flea Market did to turn a mish-mash of garage sale chairs into a gorgeous dining room set.

This table from I {Heart} Naptime got a completely new look with the addition of stripes on the tabletop.

Craftaholics Anonymous added bright upholstery to dining room chairs for a fun update, and has a great tutorial so you can do the same.

Speaking of tutorials, there’s a really good one for painting and distressing dining room furniture at Clover Lane.  So classy!

Have fun with your own dining room projects, this week.  I’ll be back next Saturday to share more dining room ideas from around the web.
