  1. Recently, I refurbished our end tables and my daughters head and foot boards to her bed. Oh my, what a difference this made to the look and feel of our living room and to my daughter’s bedroom. It was such an inexpensive fix vs. going out and buying brand new furniture. I am so glad I did this and really don’t know what took me so long. It truly amazes me how little things can make all the difference.
