I enjoy do-it-yourself work, like refinishing furniture. However, the term “DIY” is overused. It conjures up images of weekend chore lists, never-ending home maintenance, and challenging tasks we don’t want to do. OK, maybe, it’s just me that doesn’t want to do them. I’m changing the acronym. Let’s call it F-I-T. Find. Invent. Transform.
- F – Find a piece that inspires you.
- I – Invent a new or better use for it.
- T – Transform it into something you or someone else will love.
I love to re-purpose and refinish used furniture and antiques. I guess it’s the saver in me. I don’t like to see ANYTHING go to waste! Take a look at the refinished furniture pieces that I’ve enjoyed transforming into loved and versatile furniture in my home and in the homes of others, and get some helpful hints on products and techniques you can use to create your own masterpieces.
We’ve always been do-it-yourself. In that we’ve had complete control.Keren Woodward (singer, Bananarama)
