Furniture old paint updating
Whether stripping the old finish off, sanding and cleaning, or staining and waxing, the process can be very time consuming, but it’s not a difficult process.
At this point in my life, I don’t have a lot of time to spend in the process of refinishing a piece of furniture. If you are a furniture painting newbie, then research is key to success.
Last Summer, I gave a laminate nightstand a makeover with spray paint, and I then added a decorative stencil to the top.
Replacing the upholstery on a piece of furniture can completely transform it.
Besides painting, using decoupage on drawer fronts and table tops is a fun way to add extra interest and texture to furniture.
Sheet music, wrapping paper and scrapbook paper are great options for decoupage.
It is very common for older furniture to have water damage, a chipped finish and worn upholstery.
And I've used a lot of them to paint dressers, console tables, chairs, mirrors, and more.
I hope you’re inspired to look at older furniture in a different way.
Just imagine how great a piece can be with a little extra updating love.
Many pieces are sentimental – passed down from generation to generation.
Others are rescued from thrift shops, estate sales and antique shops.
