Who never thought about buying beautiful furniture, but ended up giving up after seeing the prices of it? An amazing way to decorate a place without spending too much money and helping the environment is remodeling or repainting the furniture!

It’s very important to create a color board and define the style of your place before you start your DIY Project, this way you won’t risk painting your furniture with colors that don’t match your personality or the surrounding environment. The more you do the more professional you will be, but it is important to follow some guidelines so that your project lasts longer without having to repaint.

For a simple and easy-to-do design, I would recommend you to use some paint that is just a one coat coverage. Even if you decide to apply more than once, the consistency will always be the same.

Always clean your furniture with soap and water before you start painting, this will prevent dust from getting in the paint, creating an undesirable texture.

If your furniture is originally varnished, you will need to sand it.

Using primer helps a lot to keep the color longer, but if it is a furniture that you plan to use only for a short period of time, you don’t need to.

For matte toppings I recommend buying one paint that is already matte rather than just covering with a matte sealer. Be very careful with primers and sealers since they often cause the color to become greenish.

Always do a test before you start using some paint/sealer! Always remove the handles (and paint them off the furniture if you prefer) and use tapes to cover any area you don’t want to paint!

 

HAVE FUN!

 

Here’s my latest project:

Bedroom set – Bed, nightstand and dresser. These furniture were not old but I didn’t think their color were matching with my place, to solve this problem I decided to paint them with charcoal color. I love the matte finishing so I use the paint: CHALKED from the Rust-Oleum brand that you find to buy at Amazon!

 

I hope you like it!
