Since my husband and I refuse to use credit cards and rack up debt, we have to find creative ways to make our new house into a home. One cheap and fun idea I had was to take a kids table/chairs we got a couple years ago from a yard sale, and repaint it to make it look nice and new. I went to Lowe’s (they sometimes have rejected paints for only $5) and I found a nice pale blue color I thought would look nice. The kids and I spent the day painting the table and chairs. Now they look nice and new and it only took a few hours and a little elbow grease! (The little grooves were a pain to paint and kept dripping!) It might take some time, but if you are willing to do the work, you can have a nice home at an inexpensive price.
