When looking at furniture that needs some work or is not a color I prefer, I have always said “Imagine it painted black.” But now days you can paint it whatever color you like! Painted furniture is really in whether it’s distressed, a bright color or whitewashed. Here are a few before and after pictures of some projects I just finished…
I had found this end table online that a sweet couple in Old Hickory was giving away… FOR FREE!!! I needed a bedside table and it worked perfect! It looked nice before it was painted it but for the room I am using it in, I wanted it to pop!
For the desk and end table I just wiped them down and then applied several coats of spray paint. I really like to use Valspar spray paint from Lowes. It seams to go on better and they have a pretty good color selection. Super easy and came out with such a smooth finish.
I found this set of wooden candle sticks last weekend at a yard sale and knew they would look nice painted. When looking at furniture and objects, you should look at the style and lines of the piece and then imagine it in another color.
I also bought this lamp at a yard sale but was not liking the hot pink shade at all so I took a shade I had and hot glued the pom-pom trim around the edge.
A can of spray paint can make a big difference!
