I think I usually confuse “restore” with “upcycle.” I love older pieces, but personally would just stain and change hardware. I love the look of wood. I usually get outvoted though! Husband power washed the deck- it looked fantastic, but “to sell” it must be painted because boards were broken and needed to be replaced. And the oak kitchen cabinets are now white, but with nice pulls. I’m still getting used to them.

I really like unique hardware and some pieces look great with paint depending on color, but everyone can do what they want. Give me the polished antique piece over the trendy painted piece any day though! Hopefully the heirloom mindset will come back. I don’t need stained wooden walls, floors, built ins, etc to be happy, but beams and original wood floors are lovely. Haha, tanget.. sorry. Some of these projects look creative, others I’m curious what stain might have done.

And also very minimalistic! I have something similar to those "college cubes" and I was wondering what I could do with them.. my girlfriend doesn't like them but I'm sure I can find a use for them ?

Why doesn't she like them? I don't understand how simple white squares can be hated

They are old and very used, so they have scratches on them.. they are a DIY project from some years ago so they need a new coat of paint
