The Art Of Painted Furniture

I love painted furniture and furniture makeovers.  There’s nothing more rewarding than to find a “unloved” piece of furniture and turn it into a beautiful piece that will add interest to a room.  One of the best ways to save money when decorating is to locate an unloved piece of furniture and do your magic.

Power of Paint                                                                                                               

Never underestimate the power of paint when it comes to transforming a piece that is outdated or worn out. Also, new furniture can be distressed to appear like a vintage piece of furniture. Glossy finishes give an immediate update to just about any piece. Click here to get some ideas!

Transfer Designs

Be creative and experiment with transfers on your painted furniture. You can find any transfer to suit your taste. You must choose how formal you want your piece to be or you may want a simple look or a design that appears to have been painted by you the artist. Click here to see some examples.

Hardware to Die For

A favorite thing about refinishing furniture is getting to choose new hardware. I think of it as the icing on the cake or like buying a new necklace to wear with your favorite dress.  You don’t always have to change the hardware but if you are changing the use or the style of the piece, new accessories might be the very thing to do.
