bold painted furntiure...

I bet you were expecting my 'Emerald Reveal' today.
Do you all have me figured out? I usually post my reveals on Mondays
because I've had the weekend to finish up and take photos. 
Well, this week it's scheduled for Tuesday and I have a fun surprise to go
with it, I guarantee you'll be more than happy to have waited the extra day!

In the meantime...I can tell you I LOVE my green dumpster dive, and it has
inspired me to take a look at painted furniture that makes a statement!

Imagine these pieces 'pre-paint' in a thrift store, garage sale, craigslist,
 or even tossed to the curb...

If you need to ease into color this one's for you!

Do you like the look or are you on the fence?

That red bookshelf is screaming my name! :)

Each piece is so fresh, modern and vibrant! I am mulling over painting a new side table in our bedroom lilac!

Luci @Bungalow At Home said...

Oooohhh... Haven't seen a lot of these before and yes, love the look and can't wait to see yours!

I've always like the look of painted furniture and love how it can add such a fun pop of color to a space. Love that red shelf! How fun! xo

Painted furniture is still okay in my book - especially if it improves the space that it's going to be situated in. The other day I saw a piece that was going to be painted and I wanted to say Noooooooo because it was beautiful, but that happens.

I certainly enjoy it in other people's homes, but I'm not sure it has a place in mine. Never say never :)

These are gorgeous! Love them all!

Cathy Wall said...

LOVE the look and posted about a local artist who does the same here in Madison today! Need to figure out how to add a little oomph to my home without re-doing the whole thing!!!

Kim @ La Belle Époque said...

I used to be on the fence, but I find myself more and more attracted to statement making pieces with pops of color. Can't wait to see your emerald reveal.

Danielle said...

Ooooh, can't wait to see your reveal tomorrow. You know how I feel about painted furniture - love it painted!!!! x

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

Love all the inspiration....I have many pieces waiting to be painted!...Can't wait to see your beautiful reveal!!!

Denise @ frazzled JOY said...

Love the look! Sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to see your emerald beauty!!

No fence here, I love it.

Dana Frieling said...

Why do I have the sudden urge to go jump in a dumpster?! I'm a fan but lacking in the patience department for doing it myself. Furniture painting scares me. I'll just sit back and appreciate your work of art.

Lisa @ Shine Your Light said...

Love a piece of furniture brought back to life with a coat of paint!!!
Cannot wait to see the emerald beauty!!!

Lori said...

I'm a recent convert, but probably would only do one piece. I'm excited to see yours (and the surprise!)

Calypso In The Country said...

I love it but I haven't done any in my home yet...oh wait, I did paint a desk chair for my son's room. I guess that counts! Can't wait for your reveal!

I love a good find turned decorator objet d'art! I love what you do with everything you touch! I also believe in the integrity of genuine wood so ideally for me a mix of the two is best. Looking forward to tomorrow's reveal!

Love the look. Now, will Tomorrow ever come?

Leslie said...

Great look and so many paint options. I have been painting cabinetry.. next is a coffee table. I like the look and it's fun:)

Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

I'm a believer! There are still a few pieces that I like the look of natural wood, but there's just something about a good painted piece. Can't wait to see yours tomorrow!

Katie {Miss Dixie} said...

I have a painted piece coming in the near future! The hunt begins for the perfect paint!

Gypsy Heart said...

I adore color! These are remarkable. I have 4 pieces to paint...now I'm in the mood. :)
