IKEA furniture is quite cheap and commonly available. You can assemble the pieces yourself and, most importantly, the furniture design allows for a lot of creativity when it comes to matching the pieces or converting. All you need to give an old cabinet a brand new look is a bit of paint and new handles. Take a look at how spectacularly IKEA furniture could be redone.
