If you are on a budget and have been shopping for kitchen tables and chair sets you may be thinking you will never find sets that will seat all the people you want at prices you can afford. That may be because you are looking at this all wrong. All you need to have is a little creativity and a little time on your hands. You can use furniture you find cheap and create a fun eclectic look in your table and chair sets.
Mix and Match
Who said all of your sets have to look alike? If you are on a budget, you can work with what you can find. Even though the pieces may not look alike, you can still use a little creative talent to make them seem as if they are all from the same, albeit unusual, set.
What to Look For
The best way to do this is to look for furniture pieces that are wooden. Most prefer if the table and chair sets are either painted wood or just raw wood as these can be painted and accented the way you would like. Items like these are pretty common and relatively easy to find.
To begin start collecting kitchen tables and chairs sets you like, and then add to them with other pieces you find. For example, if you are able to find some items that used to have four chairs but now only have two, because some of the others were broken or lost, that’s alright, grab them and look for other wooden chairs that you can make up the difference with.
Once you get all the pieces home, use some paint and artwork to create kitchen tables and chair sets that work together. Some of the best sets that have been made use a lot of color. The table will become a collage of color, pictures or artwork and each chair will be one of the colors that is taken from the overall picture. While they all look different at first glance, when you move up to them, you will see that everything fits together beautifully.
Where to Find Kitchen Tables and Chair Sets
It’s not hard to find the pieces to create your own special kitchen tables and chair sets. Start by taking a trip to your local thrift stores. Thrift stores are places where people donate items they no longer need so a charity can sell them and make a profit. Often you will find stray kitchen tables and chair sets with pieces missing for a great price.
Another place to look for old kitchen tables and chair sets is garage sales. Plenty of people upgrade their old tables or just decide they no longer need what they have as they are moving and sell them cheap. One persons desire to not have to move something to a new home can save you a lot of money in finding the perfect pieces of furniture that will work for your home.
