Revitalize Old Furniture
In Just One Afternoon
Have a dresser that's seen better days? An old set of chairs that are functional–but far from beautiful? Even if you're not handy, there are some easy ways to give solid furniture a lift.
Pick a color that you love, and one that will coordinate with everything else. For example, if you already have cherry wood in a bedroom, don't paint a crib pink. Instead, opt for an off-white or a pure white, which can really stand out.
Once painted, your furniture will not look like stained wood, but instead will have that shabby-chic look of painted furniture. A can of spray paint runs $4-8, and is available in a stunning array of colors at stores like Walmart or Home Depot.
Follow directions carefully, and make sure you have enough paint–it goes fast! Two cans should be enough for three typical chairs, or a standard size dresser. Sanding and stripping is usually not necessary, as paint will hide many imperfections. But it's always a good idea to test a small area on the back of the piece before you begin.
When repainting a dresser, cut a piece of wallpaper (or border) to fit a specific space, or to trim the edges. Soak and paste it according to directions, wait until it dries, and paint the piece. You can paint it separately and then add the paper to the furniture, too. The color can be the same, or coordinate with the piece you're adding it to. The key is to pick a pattern you love that works with everything else in the room...and then get started!
The good news is that painting furniture and sprucing up furniture with paintable wallpaper doesn't take long or require much talent...and it can completely recharge a tired piece! So if there are pieces of furniture in your home that could use a pick-me-up, or pieces that you're using–but not loving–you can change them with ease.
You'll be amazed that with a little time, a little creativity, and just a little bit of money, your furniture really will seem like new!
