Furniture I Can’t Wait To Paint!

In follow up to my previous post on furniture I won’t paint, this post has furniture that I can’t wait to paint!  This is furniture that I plan on utilizing ~ perhaps in different ways then currently used ~ when we downsize.  These pieces have to be painted to fit in with what I have envisioned for our next home.


This table/desk.  It’s hard to see because this room is difficult to photograph, but it’s that orangey looking stain.  It was an inexpensive piece but it is all wood.  I’d love to do this in chalk paint, but not necessarily the white.  We’ll see.  I think this is a versatile piece.  This could work as a bedroom side table, a desk, a craft room table, a hall table and would even work in a decent sized bathroom {imagine towels rolled up and stored on the bottom or a basket to hold t.p.}.


This three drawer dresser which presently sits in my entry foyer.   This works great for storage in this space, holding winter hats, gloves and scarves, as well as my overflow table linens.  I’d like to paint this and put it in a guest bedroom.


Next on the list are these bookcases that were part of my son’s bedroom set and he decided he didn’t want them anymore.  I love them and moved them into my daughter’s old room.  I can see them painted and, hopefully, used in a future craft room.  I would love to try the harlequin pattern like the chest pictured on my sidebar on these. 


Last, is this hall tree.  I’d love to do this one with the gray and old white chalk paint.  I’d need to figure out what to do with the brown and cream marble top though.  Maybe using the dark wax would help that blend in.  Of course, I still have to get to my thrift store headboard.


Soon.  Promise.

So, that’s what I got.  Now I just need to figure out do I paint them before we move or after.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who wants to paint half the house. Mr. CBD is not too keen on it but, hey, he'll come around! :)

Great pieces! Wait until you move. I just moved and 2 of my repainted pieced were scratched in the move.

Those are some great pieces! When do you move? You may want to wait until after just to prevent scratches and chips in the paint. I love the bookcases. That would be great in a workshop!

OMG that headboard could be totally amazing with a good paint job!!

Marsha @ Tattered Chick said...

Oh, lots of projects, Kathy! Funny, I was just thinking when I saw those two bookcases that perhaps in your next home you'll have a craft room and those would be perfect and then you said just that!

I really like that first table!

You sure do have quite a collection of furniture pieces to paint. I am in the process of figuring out what pieces I want to paint for my daughter's room make-over. I just bought a beautiful paisley quilt from Home Good Store as my inspiration piece for the bedroom make-over and I've ordered my chalk paint! Can't wait to get started.

Have a wonderful day Kathy,

Looks like you have lots of fun projects ahead!

Kathleen said...

I have never painted furniture except for a summer cottage. I just can't bring myself to paint an expensive piece. You are brave!

Great projects Kathy! I know that they will all look fabulous when you are done!I might wait to after the move because you may change your mind about some pieces and where they will live! Angie xo

I am such a chicken when it comes to painting wood, but I've seen some pretty nice paint jobs on the Internet.
