Before I met my husband, I was the kind of girl that would paint wood furniture all the time. In college, almost every piece of furniture in my house was painted. I don’t know what it is, maybe I watched way too much HGTV my senior year of high school, but I just love the look.
Peter is the kind of guy who is snooty about painted furniture. He makes turned wood pieces of art and builds furniture from scratch and thinks that the wood is sacred and should not be covered.
Which I get and with beautiful wood, I understand, but not all wood is the same. And plus, I feel the itch to paint some furniture coming on!!
We are in need of a head board in our master bedroom, since we put our bed in the guest bedroom, when we moved our mattress to the floor to make co-sleeping with Penelope safe.
I saw this and fell in love. Not sure where the heck I can get a used door cheap, but sure it is cool.
This is not furniture, but I really, really want to do this to my garden. Maybe later this winter, when it is all dreary outside.
This is why painting furniture is so great. You turn some piece of crap thing, into awesomeness for just a few bucks! You can see all my pins here.
Do you like to paint furniture? Or are you a purist like my husband?
