Don’t give away or sell your old furniture, make it look new and give it a second youth by repainting it. You can also do a patina or a ceruse paint to lighten and offer a different style to old wooden furniture.
Here is my DIY, affordable and without much effort.
Chest of drawers, table, chair, wardrobe… Few furniture pieces can resist the rejuvenating power of a fresh and radiant painting. The acrylic paint preferably, remains the most accessible solution for the makeover of a piece of furniture. Personally, I use Farrow and Ball paint. The colors are beautiful and extremely chic. Impossible to make a “misstep” with those. They also offer a matte finish, very fashionable this year.
It is not always necessary to repaint the furniture in its entirety to produce a wow effect. You can paint only the legs, the drawers or only the table top. This is often enough to give the furniture a cachet and transforms them into stylish and ultra-trendy pieces.
A pine kitchen will modernize under the effect of a fashionable color such as black, gray or powdery shades.
I like to paint geometric designs, multi-color stripes, or to copy the design of a printed fabric that I find in my favorite showrooms, or to play with the effects of patina or white lead. Sometimes I only use a tone on tone colors for a classic look.
You just got some wooden chairs in a flea market, give them a contemporary look by painting them with colorful geometric figures, or off centered stripes.
To want to refurbish a piece of furniture can be a challenge if you do not pay attention to few rules! Here are some mistakes to avoid before embarking on a furniture makeover and succeed brilliantly!
