There’s something almost sacred when an old, forgotten piece of furniture is given new life. A coat of varnish, fresh paint or new knobs have the power to wake up a sleepy nightstand or drab table to the most celebrated piece in the room.

When it comes to finding that diamond in the rough, both GRACEful Buys locations are jewels themselves as the best-kept secret furniture destinations in the Metroplex. Did we mention that furniture is 40% off today through January 7 at both GRACEful Buys sites?

There are plenty of like-new game room, dining and living room furniture from donors who went through a recent home remodel, along with pieces just begging for a new lifetime in your home.

For those just dipping their toes in the world of furniture recuperation, there’s what we like to call the “iconic corner cathedra”—the lonely chair that has long been separated from its table and counterparts. It’s the ideal furniture project that allows for greater liberties since there is less time commitment. Colorful chairs fit neatly in any corner in any room, and can easily pair with a bright pillow for an instant statement.

A classic furniture redo is the credenza, which is not only fun to say, but highly versatile. Arrange it in your entryway as a home for your keys, in your dining room for storage or under your TV as a media center.

Home improvement warehouses and craft stores offer a wide scope of paint finishes, from the ever-popular French finish by Annie Sloan (spoiler: Hobby Lobby sells the same chalk paint finish for $4 a tube) to rust-resistant paint for outdoor projects.

Likewise, stain and polyurethane now come as a one-step gel to give a rich, renewed look to antiques.

At GRACEful Buys you are only limited by your creativity to repurpose and rejuvenate furniture pieces at a fraction of the price.

Perhaps most rewarding about your project is that it allows GRACE to meet tangible needs for families facing hardship. Every dollar generated from our resale store supports emergency relief and translates to warm meals, life-changing medical care, education and hope for the future.

We hope you’ll be inspired by our collection! Send your #upscaleresale furniture DIY project to us for a chance to be highlighted on our social media pages!
