Now you know that I’m bit of a fan of painted re-furbished thrift furniture from my dining room chair makeover, but my obsession with painted wood is starting to spread. It seems to be everywhere at the moment and getting more beautiful, even Ikea is getting on the look with the Trollsta sideboard below.

I spend ages on Flickr looking for inspiration and Yvestown’s photostream is one of my favourite places to stop by. I think she does the painted furniture look better than anywhere else I’ve seen. Using whites as the background colour the bold colours she uses on furniture doesn’t overpower the room.
This image from House to Home.co.uk also uses the white background and a stand out colour for the coat rack and it looks fabulous.
If you have a small space painting furniture can bring the room together and bring unity to mismatching items, this works especially well in children’s rooms where you might have more ‘hand me down’ furniture. This look is cheap to acheive and easy to change as your child grows.
Have your painted furniture in your home? How do you think it worked?
