Paint is miracle that saves our budget (and sanity) when renovating: it can completely transform a home, a room, and even furniture! To inspire you for your next painting adventure, here are some incredible before and after pictures of furniture painting makeovers!
Life is a moving, breathing thing. We have to be willing to constantly evolve. Perfection is constant transformation. -Nia Peeples
From Bulky to Fresh
Inherited a bulky dresser from grandma and don’t know what to do with it?
Paint it with a bright and airy color and let it add style and personality to the room!
The painting transformation from the before and after pictures above is simply breathtaking: the dresser went from something dark and standard to something that made the room much brighter and added a new, fresh look!
Blue Painted Buffet
The original wood grain on this dresser was competing with the carved details - one muffling the other - and instead of being the showstopper the piece deserved to be, it became a piece of furniture that no one would be impressed by. That is, until it encountered a bucket of paint.
The blue painting job made it look way more stylish, accentuating the details and keeping that beautiful vintage look that ups the appeal.
The lesson to learn here is: don’t be afraid of painting that thrift furniture! It doesn’t matter what the style is, every piece can benefit with a new color or a new finish.
Why have some bland piece of furniture if you can have an amazing one instead? The transformation above is simple, but very powerful.
The DIY-er added some trim work on the drawers, but the painting job was the major change here. The grey and white combination made the piece look modern and unforgettable!
Get the look:
You can get a similar look on your own dresser by painting the dresser with a neutral color and the drawers with a contrasting one. And remember that you can also play with colorful tones, such as yellow, blue, or pink!
From Super Dated to Super Chic
Yep, painted upholstery is also a thing! You don’t need to go through the hassle of reupholstering a sofa or chair just because it looks dated. You can easily change the look just by painting it!
