Furniture Makeovers Using Color

Color has such an amazing effect on the ambiance of a space. It reflects our personality, it can change our mood and when we’re ready for a change it’s relatively inexpensive to alter. Painting furniture easily fits into this category. A bright and vibrant piece of furniture isn't for everyone. But one thing is for sure... it's definitly eye catching. :)

Stare hard at this next before we're calling The Natalia Dresser, a wonderful french provincial styled piece! What do you think about the color? Blah, right? When you see a dresser like this at a thrift store does it make you want to stop and ponder about ALL the amazing possibilities you could do with it, or do you just keep on a truck'n? I hope that the yellowish finish on this piece wouldn't have been a detour for you!

When shopping for furniture thrift store scores, here's what matters:

  • Does the furniture piece have good bones? 
  • Is the construction made of quality wood?
  • Does the piece of furniture need repairs that I'm capable and willing to do?

Here's what doesn't matter.... that existing color! Painting furniture is such an easy and inexpensive way to update a space. So, if you happen upon a thrift store score, but you're not crazy about the color... snatch it up. Once you re-finish it in YOUR perfect color, you're the one that's going to go crazy (over it)!

We selected the Natalia Dresser for it's intricate detail, the fabulous hardware and let's be honest... those legs are to die for. If you're drooling over this vibrant color, you'll want to choose Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan and mix one part Aubusson Blue with two parts Florence to create this rich and deep turquoise color.

The results? You get a fabulous french provincial piece that you want to stare at longer simply because of her color…
