How to Turn Consignment Shop Finds into DIY Décor

Consignment shops like The Furniture Den in Petersburg, IL allow you to add vintage furniture, frames, and art to your home décor at a fraction of the price. However, DIY décor projects are the best way to create a look that matches your unique sense of style. So, if you’re looking for ideas, here are some items you may use to add your personal touch to your interior design plan.  


Three-dimensional wall art is an emerging trend this year, and there’s no better way to create your unique wall art than with an arrangement of colorful baskets. Not only do they come in a lot of different patterns, sizes, and shapes, but they’re super cheap and won’t set you back a lot of money. This is a wonderful way to add the final touches to your interior design plan.

Accent pieces help bring all the other design elements together when you’re redecorating. You can turn vases into DIY décor projects by adding final touches to them yourself. Your choice of style, color, and the flowers you showcase can all complement the rest of your décor. If you have open shelving or bookcases, vases are excellent for filling empty spaces.

Picture Frames 

If you’ve got empty wall space, consider hanging family photographs or classic artwork. Our design center near Petersburg, IL allows you to browse custom frame options so that you can find the perfect frames to highlight your family memories and vintage art. We’re happy to help you create an impressive and original design. 


You can use oil-based paint, decals, string and rope, ribbons, and felt to bring a plain lamp to life. Place the lamp in a space that needs to be filled, such as on a dresser, bookcase, or corner desk. If you have an empty corner in the room, a floor lamp can fill the space and add depth to the room.  

Vintage Mirrors 

The Furniture Den can help you find the perfect mirrors to accent your room, whether you want a gilded mirror to match your existing home décor or add light or depth to a room to make it look larger. Our consignment shop can even help you restore your old frames.

Reupholstered Furniture 

New furniture is expensive and not built with the same material as vintage furniture. However, sometimes you can get a better piece of used furniture at a consignment shop and have it reupholstered to your liking for less than a new recliner and sofa set. Then, you can work with us to find the perfect material and design to fit the rest of your space.
