Painted Furniture

I have a confession, I’m a man and I have a thing for painted furniture. I say that because I’m always hearing people (wives) say, “Oh, we can’t paint that table, my husband would kill me if I covered up the wood with paint.” Now, I’m sorry, but there are just sometimes that a room or a certain area calls for a painted piece of furniture, there are also times when a room that is decorated with wood on the walls and a couple layers of light colored paint would just really lighten that room up. I want to look at painted furniture today and what a difference paint can make to some pieces of furniture, especially pieces that you find at tag sales or in consignment shops. I have a project coming up that I’m going to try out the popular chalk paint, I’ll share that with you when it happens. In the mean time let’s take a look at painted furniture and a special look at some painted pieces of furniture available on Etsy, Enjoy!!! ( above, via )


Isn’t this pink piece beautiful, I wish the picture was clearer, looks to be gold on all the lighter colored edges. ( via )


This piece is a great example of not completely painting furniture, painting the background of the piece and letting the natural wood show through in the drawer and door fronts. ( via )


I really like it when you can add some metallic shine to ANYTHING, this gray and gold piece is very good looking. ( via )

This vintage White Console Table is from the 1920’s, it would look great in an entry, hallway or behind a sofa, it’s also from RedBarnEstates


I really like this pair of end tables, they have a retro feel to them. They’re from Three Painted Arrow and listed as handmade, this is also an example of chalk paint. 


Isn’t this painted vanity a beautiful piece. It’s from the 1920’s and comes from RedBarnEstates on Etsy. The paint makes all the difference in the world.
