Hello, everyone! It’s Mari from Design Shuffle, a fabulous social networking community for interior designers and design lovers from around the world. As a writer for Design Shuffle, I often have the opportunity to do guest posts for great blogs like Paint Me Plaid. I’m especially excited to be here to share some of my favorite painted furniture. Plaid makes some wonderful paint that can be used on furniture. Click here to see some other furniture pieces paint with Plaid paint. I really enjoy discovering interesting DIY decorating ideas that involve the use of a good paint brush to turn well-worn treasures into gorgeous painted pieces with a new life and sense of purpose. The best part is that painted furniture can be used in any room in your home. For your inspiration, here are eight lovely ways to get your paint on!
This inviting sunny yellow formal foyer is kept down to earth by the pastoral scenes on a gorgeous painted piece.
An antique armoire is enhanced by chalk paint and hand-painted botanical images that flow from its delicate feet, across the doors and over the sides and top.
Chairs often offer an irresistible blank canvas. Here, the artist brought an Adirondack chair to life with a tribute to Van Gogh’s Starry Night.
In this bedroom design a bedside chest is painted to mimic Indian bone inlay work. This pretty effect could be created with Plaid’s FolkArt Painting Stencils using pale paint on a dark basecoat.
Pretty pastel paints turn these white-trimmed storage pieces into decorative elements for a child’s playroom. This is a space both children and parents would love.
A toy storage wall becomes a town when the cabinets are painted and trimmed as whimsical buildings. What a beautifully clever idea!
On this gorgeous chest it’s all about the paint that is missing. It’s been given an appealing distressed look by selectively sanding corners and drawer edges after it was paintedógreat effect.
This intriguing picture documents the evolution of dining chairs given a new life in white with colorful painted details. Can’t you just imagine the interior design these beauties will be welcomed into? Images 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8
