Some ideas for painted furniture include painting the legs of an accent chair, converting a simple bench into a painted filing cabinet and painting a bed’s headboard in a more interesting design. A boring media cabinet can also be painted a fun color to add interest to a living space.
Turn any type of easy or accent chair into a modern chair simply by painting the legs and wood trim. Choose a sunny yellow or a bold blue to create a fun accessory for any room.
An option for an old chest or bench that opens is to paint the outside and use it in a home office, where it can be used to store valuables or to place filing drawers and folders inside. Paint it to match the office space.
Remember to clean and sand furniture thoroughly before painting it. Adding primer is recommended in most cases.
