Like with kitchen cabinets, adding some paint to your furniture will create a completely new look. If it’s varnished make sure you sand it first (an electric sander will get the job done quickly) and paint in your chosen colour. If you want the distressed look, sand the corners a little and any areas that would normally look worn over time.
