What To Do With The Things Your Grandkids Don't Actually Want

8. Repurpose Furniture
I ended up with furniture from my grandmother and great-grandmother. Of course, being my parent's clone, I thought my daughters would someday want these "antiques." Since I now know that is not going to happen, I am repurposing these pieces and having a lot of fun doing it.

There are tons of YouTube videos on how to do all kinds of techniques to refinish old furniture. Many of the old pieces can enjoy a new life with a little imagination and time. Who knows? You might actually reinvent something into a piece your kids will want!
