Wallpaper is key!
Try facing your furniture with a mural or wallpaper – this can be extremely effective and always be removed again. Try it on the table surface and add a glass topper for full effect. You can also add wallpaper/wrapping paper inside the drawer space to add some personality. Adding gold strips in-between the drawers can add definition to your accented silver or gold concept.
Other ideas work well, such as taking a simple plastic chair, spray painting the metal legs gold, and covering the plastic seat with a fluffy rug or fluffy fabric and you will be left with an Instagram worthy vanity chair. Making small changes such as changing colour, texture or adding to an item can really make a difference.
