Whether you’re operating on a budget, looking to give your furniture a new twist, or trying to add “pop” to a room, painting your furniture is a fun DIY project that gives you the ability to accomplish all or any of these things!
Ombre shading is a big trend in clothing, decor, even hair. You can adapt the look to painted furniture by adding a soft gradient to an update an old dresser. Using a fan deck, purchase a quart of each color and paint away! Typically the top drawer, dresser top, sides, and feet are all the lightest gradient color.
Don’t forget: where there is paint, there can be stencils! Forget the fusty, country blue geese you may be envisioning. Adding a contemporary stencil design is a great way to add fresh style and personality to your painted furniture.
Using a bright color on a once-basic colored piece adds focus and style. For instance, this Kelly green cabinet is the perfect amount of accent to a black and white foyer. The before and after on this project is quite remarkable as well.
