Minutes with Meg: Furnishing Forward
Buying Pre-owned or Repurposing Furniture
Some people may be turned off to buying pre-owned furniture. However, if you look on
Facebook market-place, or resale websites, it’s not too difficult to find a diamond in the rough. It's good to find pieces that are durable and will last years down the line. So make sure to get a good look at furniture pieces before buying them. It is also good to look for the wear and tear and determine if it can be refurbished or repurposed.
On the plus side, giving a piece of furniture a new home is a sustainable way of shopping. It also can be less harmful, as furniture that has been around for longer has had a chance to off-gas and will release less toxic chemicals into the air in your home.
It also can be more affordable, and who doesn’t want affordable furniture that can stand the test of time?
