9 Easy Ways to Turn Ordinary Furniture Pieces Unique

1. Wallpaper the backboard of dressers, hutches etc. for a pop of color and design.

Filing cabinets are functional but not when it comes to design. Wallpaper the surface for an all around great piece.

2. Paint an ordinary piece an extraordinary color and BAM!

For this look, choose your colors from a paint chip card with gradient colors and then buy small sample jars of each color for the separate drawers in your furniture piece.
3. Exchange old knobs for new and give your piece an added dose of character.

4. Just add cushions! Cushions serve an ordinary piece best when they incorporate vibrant/rich colors and patterns complimentary to the room they reside.
Look how these cushions took an ordinary deep blue coach and made it extraordinary and attention grabbing.

5. Antique for a rustic look. Paint two layers of color and with a rag and paint remover, remove the first layer in desired spots.

6. Stencil a design on the surface. Remove the knobs and pencil on a design or buy a stencil.

7. Wood cut outs can be glued to a flat surface and painted over with the rest of the piece.

8. Wallpaper the insides of your drawers for a happy surprise every time they are opened.
9. Inside one color, outside another! Just use blue painting tape for crisp, differentiating lines.
