This is a post from 2010…but I’ve added updated photos because almost 5 years later, I still LOVE my painted dining room furniture! Keep scrolling for update pics!
Painted dining room furniture makes a big difference in the overall look of your room! (2010)
2012—in our new (old )house
(2013…I added new chairs…but…)
I used the painted chairs at the farm table in the eat-in kitchen!
Really…there’s just no end to what you can do with an old dark wood piece of furniture and a can of Behr paint…
Here’s a peek at the Before dining room furniture…it was super dark wood…
Thanks to Behr Paint with Primer I tackled my dinning room furniture, a project I really thought I’d never be able to do. I have arthritis in my hands and 2 coats of primer and 2 coats of paint would have caused me grief for weeks. When I realized I only had to do 2 coats with the Paint with Primer I jumped right in!
This stain glass is my inspiration for my color changes in my house. (I’ve done loads of color-changes lately) I’m on a mission to infuse these scrumptious colors into our little world. I’m in love with the soft hues of blues and greens and the sandy neutral color.
I distressed the furniture after I painted. That was really the hardest part.
I used Behr Antique White on the table...
A color called Beach Sand that I had color matched in Behr Ultra Paint with Primer for the Buffet.
A tealish blue color on the hutch. (My Home Depot “Paint Specialist” color matched it for me)
Then I painted 3 chairs the teal color and 3 chairs the Beach Sand color…
I love the way it turned out…the room feels bigger, brighter…fresh.
Have a color-filled day my friends
