I really like the look of painted wood furniture. Hubby, though, loves wood so much that it is almost sacriligious to suggest painting it. However, after forcing him to look at countless samples online, he has relented and said he’ll paint some of our wood furniture for me! Yipee! (Here are some of the samples I’ve shown him: a cobalt blue dresser, this groovy credenza, and for kids’ rooms, things can get really fun.)
Pretty much everything we own is a hand-me-down from family and is wood, so the choices are a plenty. But I think that maybe we should start small and not go too crazy. For instance, we have two small side tables that are fairly useless to us in their current state. They have water damage and scratches, but more than that, they are kind of traditional looking and not really our style.
So, design savvy folks, what do you think: Can this piece be painted? And if yes, how and what colour? I really don’t know where to start and I’m not even sure that paint can make this piece fit in with the rest of our house. So I would love to hear any of your ideas!
