Just paint it!

Its raining, again, and I am housebound with a bunch of sick kids, so I have begun to scrutinize my surrounds. I am noticing all the things that need to be painted, furniture in particular. After meeting with a client yesterday and discussing the option of painting some of her pieces it got my wheels spinning. I have loads of furniture for my boy's bedroom and play area that will become my guinea pigs once the weather breaks and I get a chance to get outside.

I came across an interesting before and after in Ready Made yesterday and loved the ingenuity of the use of belts for drawer pulls.

It always amazes me what a coat of paint can do. So gather up your dingy, chipped, and outdated and give them a spring makeover. Change out the hardware, wallpaper a drawer front or add stripes or wall decals. The possibilities are endless. I'm attaching a how to paint furniture link for those new to the process. http://www.ehow.com/how_121_paint-wood-furniture.html Good Luck! Here is some inspiration...

Knack Studios does an amazing job transforming old pieces. Definitely check out their website, its loaded with beautiful things.

I love the chalk branch and those birds! So sweet and simple.

Always a sucker for turquoise.
The papered drawer fronts are fabulous!

Calm and simple Martha Stewart

If you lack artistic ability try wall decals.

Stripes are grand!
