Today I have a bunch of painted furniture projects you guys have probably never seen. They're from the first couple of years of the blog and I didn't really do a full tutorial on my projects back then.
The old posts where the painted furniture projects were first featured are gone as of today. Bonus....I made a video of my latest finds from my favorite junk shop and the video is in this post!
The green chair with the floral seat is the very first project I posted for the blog back in May of 2011. I've come a long way since then. I don't have the before photo of this one, sorry.
Back at that time lime green was my favorite paint color and I painted a bunch of things with this color. The color is Honeydew and the fabric was a kitchen curtain in another life.
Most of these photos are really bad. I've learned a thing or two about photography since these pictures were taken. Still learning.
I bought the waterfall chest of drawers at the Nashville Flea Market and have never seen another one like this.
The blue knobs decided the paint color for me. The two tone finish is one of my favorite.
Very seldom do I paint new furniture but I won these chairs at a blogging conference. They came in a box....in pieces.....the JTS put them together for me.
The bold colors say it all. You can't have Summer chairs without lively colors.
This is the bottom part of a very rustic bookcase.
I painted it black and distressed the paint so the original white paint would shine through.
This old dropleaf table got the works.
I painted it with Caromal Colours Peppercorn (black) paint and then I used a Caromal Colours Chipping Creme to act as a paint resist (think Vaseline distressing) . Next I topped it all with my favorite lime green paint and distressed the paint so the black would shine through.
The green chest is the before picture. I painted the chest and stenciled it when we were living in Florida. So that would be about 2008.
This is the latest paint job and I did it for the Behr Paint Designer Series. You can find me here on Behr!
I found this piece at the Nashville Flea Market too.
The JTS removed the top drawer and made the space into a shelf. We use it as a tv stand and the shelf holds the cable box.
Painted furniture makes a great TV stand. Much better than those ugly black and glass things. The paint is Beyond Paint and the color is Latte.
Boy was that chest of drawers ugly....but it had good bones.
I painted it a pretty fuchsia (or pink) for a friend who was opening a children's clothing shop. I don't have the color name but I sure wish I did. The color is the perfect bold pink. The picture doesn't do the piece justice.
You can see these painted furniture pieces here for now. I deleted all the blah posts of these makeovers mainly because there was very little valuable info in them.
Here is the video showing what I bought on last week's trip to my favorite junk shop. I got some good stuff!! Check it out......
Junk Shop Finds
What do you think of my junk finds? What color should I paint the vintage dresser? Leave a note if you have time. Thanks for being here, Kathy
