In my weekly Craigslist posts, I try very hard to not be a “slap a coat a paint on everything and it will be gorgeous” type of girl. There is something to be said for the effect paint can have on inexpensive or unrestored furniture. I think this is a trend that tends to become popular during bad economic times, people tend to want a quick and cheap effect. In a few years, when the economy is hopefully booming, we will be all about wood finishes and will be stripping all of our painted projects. Here are some pretty pieces that have been improved by appropriately and creatively applied paint.
Have you ever made over a piece of furniture with paint? I would love to see photos of your paint projects.
