Custom Furniture Painting: Bedroom Furniture Makeover

I occasionally do custom furniture painting and these pieces were painted for a young lady going off to college.

Aqua Blue Chest with White Wash Details

This is a custom piece for one of my clients.

This client purchased my blue and white Mademoiselle Desk and then had me paint a dreamy blue and white chest, nightstand and chair to match.


The client’s daughter needed a little more storage so I was asked to paint this piece to match the others.


I used a white wash to bring out the details on the chest doors.

  1. These are great Kathy. I’ve got a similar chair (actually 6 of them!) that I was going to paint black, but you’ve now got me rethinking my plan. Still will do black, but might do the floral part in white or ASCP greek blue.

  2. Love your work. Where do I find a tutorial to help me understand the steps you did to make such a transformation? I have a blue wash piece of furniture that I want to switch to white wash. How do I do it? I don’t know anything about painting furniture. Thanks, dymphna

  3. What a beautiful job, Kathy. The chair is a great compliment. Try to stay cool. We've been having some pretty hot weather too.

  4. Beautiful Kathy – what a transformation!
    I've been painting in unbearable heat as well,
    fun, isn't it?
