A couple of months ago, I wrote a post how we were in process of decorating our dining room and decided to paint our dining room furniture. I wanted to follow-up and show how our furniture looks now that the painting has been completed. We are still in process of working on the rest of the dining room, so stay tuned for more pictures of the rest of the room.
First off, here are the before and after pictures of our dining room table (those are additional table leaves in the background):
And my favorite piece of all, the buffet table:
I love how all three pieces of furniture turned out! The slate gray color is just what I had in mind. I know some people would not consider painting furniture, especially family heirlooms like the grandmother clock, but it was the right decision for us. The pieces were a little too traditional for what we wanted and the clock would have likely ended up in storage in our basement if we didn’t change it up a little. If you can’t make a piece of furniture fit your style, what is the point of holding on to it? Check out Painted Pretty for more painted furniture ideas…they do such a great job! If you live in Boston, they are at the SOWA vintage market every Sunday.
Have you painted a piece of furniture in your house? Were you happy with the results?
