Things to Do with an Old Dining Set

Much like baby furniture disposal, you’ll quickly discover there’s not much demand for a used dining set. And, why there is some need for used baby furniture, the vast majority of parents opt to buy new or get from a family member or dear friend. Plus, some of that furniture can find its way onto a recall list and that means it’s no good at all. Unless you can find a retro resale shop nearby, an old dining set won’t necessarily be easy to get rid of for good.

You are not stuck with a dining table you don’t like, even if you can’t afford to buy a new one or have to stick with the one you have for some reason. There are things that can be done, of the DIY variety, that can spice up a dining table and add a little delight to your dining room. —Apartment Therapy

But, this doesn’t mean you can do anything with an old dining set. You have some options at your disposal and one just might do the trick for you. Of course, you can disassemble it and deal with the parts or even perhaps reuse various parts. But, in general, that’s not a particularly great way to go. Here are some easy things to do with an old dining set:

  • Refurbish it. With all the DIY materials and tools available, there’s really no reason you can’t refurbish it to continue to use it. This is especially true for a wood dining set. With some paint drop clothes, sandpaper, paint remover, and a little primer and paint, you can completely refurbish it to give it a whole new life.
  • Repurpose it. If you don’t want to go through the trouble of refinishing it, consider repurposing it. Put it in the garage or in another space to use as a workbench. If you use your imagination, you can find a way to repurpose it to get a lot more use out of it.
  • Sell it online. If the dining set is in good condition, you can probably sell it online locally. Price it to sell, with the contingency the buyer needs to pick it up and haul it away. You might well put a little money in your pocket.
  • Give it away. Of course, another thing you can do with an old dining set is to give it away. This is a good option if you’re near a college campus or you can always reach out to local charities, you’d be surprised by how much this type of donation is appreciated.
