Learning To Care For Quality Furniture

By Marc Boyajian

No one needs to be told how expensive furniture is. Even lower end furniture that isn’t meant to last for years and years can sometimes put a strain on a budget. In many cases, finding almost identical furniture that has been lovingly owned and used is an excellent option. Used is back in style!

This is one of the many reasons that some families just prefer looking for some good used items. This doesn’t mean you have to bring home ripped and stained chairs from the dump. This means that you are buying excellent quality that someone else got tired of, couldn’t take with them when they moved, or simply decided it was a decorating mistake and wants to get rid of it.

Other times maybe you just need one particular piece like an entertainment center or a dresser for a spare bedroom. It’s easy to find items that are in excellent shape and will even match everything you already have – for a fraction of what they cost only a few years ago brand new.

If items are made well, they will last for years and years. Finding a table or a bureau in perhaps a second hand store could be a real find! Some pieces can be over fifty years old and still look perfect, and cost very little. Frequently a coat of paint or some simple refinishing can turn an old dusty artifact from an attic into a new showpiece in your own home.

Anyone who likes working with his hands or doing any type of craft project usually loves to refinish things. There are some stay at home moms who make a very nice living just by buying old ugly pieces and painting and refinishing them. Other than a few simple tools and a quick trip to your local hardware store, this is actually a viable home business that can help you redecorate your home and make money at the same time.

Families with kids have already learned that used is best. Teenage daughters are infamous for changing their design tastes on a regular basis, and just as you pay off the princess bed she wanted to die for last year, she now decides she needs a completely new bed. Fortunately, she isn’t the only girl out there going through these identity crises and you’ll be able to find other moms selling just what your daughter is in the mood for now.

If this sounds like your life, no problem. There are many used items from moms who have already gone through this, and they have daughters who are now tired of the brass daybeds they begged for only a year before.
