With its generous proportions and handsome built-ins, soothing blue accents, and collection of painted European furniture, this dining room hardly needed a major makeover. But something wasn't quite working -- the space was too formal and a little crowded. But with an update to a chandelier, the dining room curtains, a cabinet, and a bare-bones bureau, the room was completely transformed.
So the table you bought last year turned out not to be The One. Or the "adorably worn" cabinet you found at a flea market seemed like a less of a steal once you got it home. Not to worry: With new hardware, fresh paint, and other adjustments, almost any piece of furniture can be customized to fit your taste and needs exactly.
