Out with the old and in with the—old? You may not know it, but a lot of outdated items can look brand new with a little DIY ingenuity. For instance, if the finish on a table doesn't match your newly upholstered chairs, strip it and stain it in a new hue. A worn bedside table can be painted and repurposed as an end table for a screened porch. No matter what you have on hand, if it's in relatively good condition, it can probably be salvaged. And when in doubt, give something a quick coat of paint—sometimes that's all it takes.
