A simple way to improve antique pieces of furniture, such as a chest of drawers, is to fit new handles. The Victorians had a habit of replacing metal handles with round wooden knobs, often leaving the marks of the former back-plates showing. Sets of old handles can be picked up cheaply from antique and second-hand shops but make sure that the back-plates are large enough to cover any existing indentations.
Whether or not you will be moving: You might have just moved into a small rental house where you are starting your life from. When the money starts rolling in, do not just run to purchase big sofa sets. Buy just what you need at that moment. Save the money for the eventual move that you will make into the bigger space. This will allow you to lead a comfortable life both in the smaller home and the bigger one that you will eventually move into. You do not want to run to buy furniture now then after you move you find yourself dealing with issues such as the furniture does not blend with your new home or even does not fit in the new home.
Finding suitable replacement materials for inlay and boulle antiques is an even greater problem. They tend to use more complex and varied materials. Antique and second-hand shops often have boxes containing suitable oddments and it is worth searching through them to find matching pieces. As a last resort, missing pieces of inlay can be built up with synthetic resins or wax, coloured to match. If boulle has lifted seriously or is bent, leave the repair to an expert restorer; but if the lifting is only slight, carefully remove the section and scrape clean all the dirt. Stick with an epoxy resin adhesive and weight it down until the glue has dried.
