Painted Furniture

Floral Desk- with recycled house paint colors

Bar Stool Inspired by Indian Patterns

Trunk Inspired by Indian Patterns

Tea Shelf

I still love painting furniture, although I would say the peak of my passion for this craft happened at around age 17. I look for old shelves, chairs, or tables in stores such as Salvation Army which often sell very cheap wooden pieces begging to be refinished. The bar stool and trunk are painted with simple house paint and some acrylic paint (for smaller detail areas) and covered over with polyurethane. The Tea Shelf is painted with house paint, and then decoupaged with decorative wrapping paper.
