How To Get The Restoration Hardware Look For Less

$5.00
1 Hour
Easy

Have you often wondered where your dark furniture fits in? Should you paint it, strip it & restain it or give it the boot? I had lots of dark wood furniture from my first home that was bought during the height of the trend and couldn't bare to give it the boot. A few pieces I painted and loved, but found another alternative that gives a Restoration Hardware look, for a lot less.
