15 DIY Turquoise Furniture Makeovers

I love turquoise. Can I say that again…..I love turquoise. I have several turquoise furniture makeovers in my past. The color seems to be making a comeback or maybe it never left. Turquoise just screams happiness. It brightens rooms, it draws in the eye, and it makes me do the happy dance.

Beautiful French Provincial hutch and dresser painted turquoise is one of 15 diy turquoise furniture makeovers featured today

Turquoise Furniture Makeover

If you have a piece of furniture  that no longer fits in your home or your décor you can get rid of it or you can give it a new life. It’s usually cheaper to give it a new life than go out and buy something new. I’m all about saving money so I would opt for working with it and see what happens.

It’s hard to imagine the end transformation in your mind until the project is started. You will be amazed how one coat of paint will get you pumped up and impatient to finish the project. If you’ve ready to take the plunge I have a bunch of turquoise furniture makeovers for inspiration. Three of the projects are mine from earlier times. I’ve painted a lot of turquoise pieces and you may not have seen these.

2. Eulalie’s Sky Side Tables. I love these two tables that started life as part of a vanity. The turquoisy color of Eulalie’s sky is perfect too.

3. Turquoise Table Top and Blonde Bottom.  It hasn’t been that long ago since I painted this table and I think the makeover made my Aunt smile. My Aunt and Uncle purchased this table soon after they were married. The top got a little damage over the years and needed something. I’m glad I was able to just pretty up the top and leave the blond finish on the bottom.

4. Buffet Entertainment Center  Makeover. If your TV stand is dull and boring it might be time to try something new. This buffet turned entertainment center has hidden compartments for all those electronics.

  1. I love turquoise, and your furniture looks great!!! It is inspiring me to paint an old table that is in my formal dining room that needs to be updated. Thank you, Kathy, for all of your inspiration!!!

  2. I am liking turquoise quite a bit lately, but only in small doses so far. A vase or lamp here, a pillow there or the turquoise parts in the pattern of my LR rug. It’s definitely an accent color for me at this point, but you never know how that might change in the future! Even so, I always love seeing all your projects, turquoise or not!

  3. Not a fan of turquoise, especially that much in one place. The biggest I can take is a small square, sorry.
