3. Reupholster Your Own Dining Chairs
Tired of that ugly floral pattern on the dining chairs you inherited from your mother? Instead of going out and purchasing a new set, consider reupholstering them. Having chairs reupholstered by a shop is usually just as expensive as buying new ones, so save some money and DIY.
There are many simple tutorials available on design blogs and YouTube videos that will walk you through the process. Most of the tools and materials will already be available around the house such as a staple gun, wood glue, and hammer. Avoid trendy patterns or colors that will likely go out of style in a few years.
