A simple paint-over of wooden furniture can transform a piece for next to nothing. No need for shopping!
IKEA stool used as a side-table showing signs of wear.
Dark wood does not match new colour scheme.
Paint over with white paint (lightly sand all surfaces, coat with two layer of undercoat and two top-coats)
- Dress table with dramatic slightly oversized lampshade on existing base (the size of shade is balanced by the table)
Project cost = £20. Undercoat and Satinwood paint, plus £1.50 for lampshade on eBay. Original (unfinished) stool was around £7
