12 Painted Furniture Pieces
Happy Sunday Friends! You all know how much I adore paint… so I thought I’d do a roundup of some of the furniture pieces I’ve painted over the years. I’m still amazed at how paint can instantly transform a piece or a room… adore paint! All of these pieces were freebies, Craiglist scores and one we bought in a cheap auction storage unit.
Let’s check them out…
This dresser we found in a storage unit that we purchased. Some creamy white paint and some new knobs and this piece was a winner.
This princess dresser all creamy white was boring brown laminate. Some white paint and bright pink knobs was all it needed.
This was a roadside freebie buffet. I originally painted her black but her latest update she went a deep gray.
This armoire was a $25 craigslist find. I painted her a creamy white and updated her hardware with some oil rubbed bronzed spray paint.
A freebie table was updated with chalkboard paint for my sewing table.
This was a $1 garage sale chair that I updated with some apple green paint.
This use to be my grandma’s dresser. I created a fun gingham pattern with paint.
I added some wave detail to my daughter’s bookshelf with painter’s tape and white acrylic paint.
This was a craigslist freebie desk. She was already white but she got a fresh coat of white paint and some pretty new hardware.
This TV armoire was given to us for free by our neighbors. I painted it with some light gray paint.
This gray desk was updated with a faux zinc look using a variety of acrylic paint.
My free craigslist chairs got a chalk-like paint update with a mixture of freebie paints.
Free and cheap furniture is a great way to get your feet wet if you’ve never painted furniture. Checking your local craigslist for great deals and your neighborhood garage sales is a great way to find some pieces.
Happy painting friends!
Hi Maryann, I love how you transform old furniture. As for the apple green chair, did you use spray paint? How many coats did it take? I have 4 pf those that I will be painting soon and wasn’t sure what kind of paint to use. I would very much appreciate your advice. Thanks.
Hi Allyna ~ Yes… I did use spray paint. If I remember correctly I think it took 2-3 light coats to cover.
Beautiful work! I love that TV Armoire so much!!!!!!!!
Thanks Anne! You have a great Sunday too.
Your painted pieces are all just beautiful! I love how you transform them with your painting skills! I have more paint on me than anything else! I need more practice, I suppose. Maryann, I really am crazy about your armoire, it’s awesome!
Have a wonderful Sunday~
Thanks Nancy! Yes… practice definitely helps. I rarely change into paint clothes now-days… I know… horrible! One of these days it’s going to bite me in the tushie.
