You’ve heard people say it before, there is real power in paint. It can transform the walls of a room, or completely change a piece of furniture. I always always always will give a discarded piece of furniture a second chance at life by slapping on a fresh coat of paint and seeing if it works. You really have nothing to lose by at least trying! I recently did a big time clean up of what I like to call my basement flea market (or a potential episode of Hoarders), and I had this little wood side table that I used for my record player and records back in the day that needed some love. So I gave it my attention.
I’m back to share part two of how I repaint old wooden furniture. If you missed part one, you can find it [here]! There are so many methods to repainting old pieces, and like I said in part one, this is one method that works for me. I am a lover of chipped paint and that old distressed look, but sometimes even if the piece is already old looking, it may still need some TLC to get that look you want. In my case, I purchased this little old step stool and knew immediately I wanted to repaint it. And by repaint it, I don’t mean just slap another coat of paint on top, I mean really do some work on it to get it looking great again!
If you’ve followed along long enough, you probably know by now that I am huge on repainting old wooden furniture. My favorite projects come from taking something old, cleaning it up, and making it into something new, at least new to me. A solid wooden piece of furniture is gold, if it has the right bones. It never ceases to amaze me what a little TLC can do to something discarded.
Over the years I have learned a few things about restoring furniture and have found a method of repainting old pieces that has worked for me. By all means I am no pro or anything, but there are so many methods and tricks that you kind of have to find what works for you.
