Painted Furniture

Good Morning! Beautiful weather here lately. The Springtime always makes me want to clean out clutter, re-arrange furniture, paint, etc. Does anyone else get those "bursts" of energy too in the Spring? I have a passion that i would like to share with you. I like to paint furniture! I take a tired, plain piece and see it as a new- embellished masterpiece! I am going to enclose some of my pic's in this post. I will take some more of the painted furniture pieces i also did in another post. Decoupage is a favorite to embellish even more on a dresser, table, etc. Here are some of my pics: Here is a cocktail table that I re-painted black w/ a damask patterned top from a worn piece of furniture. My daughter used it as a table in one of her college apartments:
This was an old dining room chair- i of course painted + put leopard padding on the seat! My daughter used it for her desk chair in her apartment too!
This is a decoupaged, painted dresser. Originally all white- but now chic + funky! What do you think?
Here is my amoire in my living room i use to store my stereo + all my cd's. I searched antique stores for a piece like this.....i found it, it was very dark but in good shape! I sanded it- painted it cream w/ a bit of gold touches. I love this piece,,,,,
Here is another chest/dresser painted, embellished in soft peach/pink colors. I also added wood embellishments on the drawers (dont know if you can see). This style dresser is very popular and can fit in corners of your bedrooms.
Thats all for now! I will put some more of my painted furniture creations on this blog soon. Dont be afraid to see a piece of furniture and create something all your own. Smile pretty- blessings!!xoxo Mar
