The most affordable home makeover hacks

Posted by Joan Shumaker on

Sometimes you just don't want to spend a lot of time and money to give your home a makeover. We get it! One of the easiest and cheapest ways to give old furniture a new look is to switch out the hardware or add some fresh legs.

Furniture hacks for $10 or less.

Changing the knobs or pulls on a cabinet, dresser, or a nightstand is the fastest and most affordable way to give it an upgrade, or an entirely new look. Our hardware comes in brass, gold, chrome, and matte black. These are a steal at $9 and $10.

Our legs have a universal fitting plate and are compatible with all furniture that has a surface to attach the four screws we include in each package. A regular credenza requires four Sara legs.

Ilse in brass, chrome, and matte black ($25/pc.)

The Ilse can be used as support legs for longer units using the Sara legs, or as stand-alone legs for a sleek designer look. All legs are made of steel and can hold 150 lbs.

 

Buy the customer favorite.

In 2020, our matte black legs have truly dominated, and it's easy to see why. The legs' design is timeless while giving the piece of furniture an edge. Match it with the colors of the credenza, like in this example:

 Charcoal black Credenza with black legs

Frida credenza with black Sara legs and Ingrid pulls.

 

Or create a refreshing contrast, like in this example:

Amelia white sideboard with black Sara and Ilse legs, and Marlen knobs.

We hope you will try one of these hacks! Upcycle instead of piling on to the landfills.
