Love the popular look of mid-century modern furniture? My parents had this style of furniture and I am just so upset I did not keep some, especially their dresser. With funky legs and accents, clean lines with a fun edge, mid-century modern furniture is timeless for a good reason. If you did not hold onto your parent’s old furniture, either or you can’t afford to buy the awesome designer mid-century furniture offered in stores, check out this project list of 50 ideas to get your going with a modern style on a budget. From bedroom furniture to cool living room decor pieces, you have plenty to choose from. I made the white dresser last weekend, a cool IKEA hack I could not pass up, and could not be more pleased with the results. We plan to update our bedroom, entirely using projects from this DIY list.
