We’ve all heard the saying, “Reduce, Recycle, and Reuse”. With the ever-increasing efforts to preserve our planet, we constantly need to find new ways to live that mantra. When Maureen started The Millionaire’s Daughter she had a couple things in mind, one of which was being mindful to recycle, reuse and re-purpose in all areas she could throughout her business model.
At The Millionaire’s Daughter we are all about different ways to recycle, we reuse every packing material we can when you bring in your consignments! So if you have extra unwanted newspaper or boxes, send them our way. We will use it to wrap up your fabulous treasures you find in the store!
Keeping with the eco-friendly trend we strive to showcase decor and furniture that creatively reuse old treasures. Is it reclaimed, repurposed, recycled, refinished or have green intent? Perfect, we love it!
Really, when you think about it what could be more eco-friendly than a store filled with consignment furniture? To further cut down on environmental impact, we showcase a mix of brand new, vintage and antique furniture from local retailers and homes across Ontario. The whole purpose of consignment is that something gets a new life, we hate to see good quality furniture being tossed aside!
Today we’re sharing 3 furniture DIY makeovers to try this summer! Get inspired, grab a paint brush and start recycling!
We found this first DIY over at LiveLoveDIY.com where Virginia transformed a thrifted dresser with a bit of paint and some painters tape. We LOVE the result. We thought this project could totally be done with this Buffet we have for sale.

This DIY campaign style night table was found on Vintagerevivals.com (one of the BEST DIY blogs out there). We thought the similar Campaign End Table would be perfect if someone wanted to re-create this!
Campaign End Table | Item #34943 | $127.40
We found this next chair makeover on Sophiasdecor.blogspot.com and we LOVE it. The fabric she used it amazing! You can give this DIY a try using a ladies parlour chair we’ve got for sale.
