This is the perfect weather for one of my favorite summer activities: refinishing old furniture pieces. Goodwill’s stores have unique old pieces of furniture that look amazing with a new coat of paint and a bit of creativity. One of my incredibly talented peers in the local non-profit industry has done a really impressive job turning old pieces into new treasures. Her blog, Pinterest, and facebook page all have great ideas for inspiration, and if you’re in town this weekend, it gets even better: she has her semi-annual sale this Friday and Saturday! Follow her facebook page to find more information on the sale.
Check out her projects in her “before and after” gallery, and make sure to stop by her sale this weekend to find some pieces for yourself.
Smart Goodwill shopping tip: Call ahead to see if the Goodwill store you’re heading to has any furniture sales coming up. I’ve seen a few of the stores in our area with 1/2 off furniture sales, which means you can refinish a great piece for an unbeatable price. Check back throughout the summer to see more “before and after” pieces on Goodwill’s blog!
