My neighbour was throwing away an old chair, so I asked if I could have it. I sanded it down and repainted it using a tin of leftover black paint. Then I made a little round cushion out of an old purple scarf and filled it with the insides of an unused cushion pad. Now my new chair matches my bedroom beautifully and it didn’t cost me a penny.
