Why paint furniture?
Some folks have commented to me that it's a shame to paint wood furniture. I agree - in some cases. I would never paint over a beautiful, good quality antique furniture piece. However, many old pieces can be saved and reloved by a little TLC and some paint (well, Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan, of course!). This buffet above is the perfect example. It was water damaged, moldy, warped, and had veneer beyond repair. After removing the damage, the frame was sturdy and worth saving. Add some awesome color, fabric accents, and sweet knobs from Anthropologie and I now have an awesome display piece. Destined for the dump? No way! re.invent it!
