Furniture Wrap - An Affordable, Quick & Easy Way to Update Your Furniture

And with a blink of an eye, the summer holidays have come to an end.  I can hear huge sighs of relief from you all as routine and normality return once more to your households; especially if your children have returned to school. I hope you’ve had an enjoyable one and if you’ve been away, welcome back!!

Furniture Wrap - An Affordable, Quick & Easy Way to Update Your Furniture

 

I’m always in awe of those who can transform pieces of furniture with their artistic capabilities. Whether it’s up-cycling or completely reinventing pieces of furniture, it’s a wonderful skill to have. Sadly a skill that I’m profoundly lacking in and, of course, like most of us, time can often be an issue. Although, if I’m being completely honest, I can be incredibly a tad impatient and from past experiences, my attempts haven’t been that great. (You can see my failed attempt at a furniture makeover on a budget at the end of this post of inherited blue storage units in my home office……… just promise not to laugh/cringe too much!

Since then, any thoughts of up-cycling have become but a fleeting thought. I’m sure I’m not alone on this one, but fear not, I might have found a solution for us wannabe furniture renovators and decorators. Yay!!

REASONS TO GET WRAPPING

In case you need a reason to get sticking and impress those you love with your new-found furniture makeovers, I’ve put a little list of reasons why you might want to consider this fun Furniture Wrap, not that you’ll probably need one.

 

INHERITED FURNITURE

There will a whole host of reasons for wanting to update your furniture without having to splurge the cash. It could be that you’ve inherited your Great Aunt Molly’s sideboard, and as much as you loved her, no matter what angle you look at it, it’s not going to fit in with your modern home. Furniture Wrap may just be what you’re looking for.

 

STARTING OUT
