Painting furniture can cover a multitude of sins. In fact it can be additive, but I think everything in moderation. From chalky blues to geometric hues, painted furniture is here to stay. Here are a few that have captured my gaze this week…
This is where it started, once I clapped eyes on this elegant offering I wanted more. A powder blue sets off the ribs on this little cabinet, flanked by an Eames chair, what more could you want?
I like the mix with this chest of draws, a wooden front is framed by a chalky blue. The triangular design really catches your attention.
So simple and so lovely, a kids wardrobe with cascading circles in vibrant orange and blue.
A perfectly chalky chest of draws in ombre shades of pastel pink and and smokey grey.
In a bold acid yellow and black illustration, this piece of furniture makes me want to just get out a marker pen and start doodling.
Or perhaps go for a colour in the kitchen – a rich aubergine covered in, well, just look at that counter top! Undulating well-worn wood bolted on creates the perfect contrast.
Romantic pink painted draws double as a bed side table. I love the brassy handles paired with the retro radio and lamp.
Neat and tidy, charcoal grey is framed in white with rounded wooden legs in this mid century style cabinet.
Van Gogh inspired wardrobe in brilliant blue capturing the majesty of the magnolia tree.
Love the geometric pattern on this painted chest of draws. The miss-matched handles just add to the cool.
If your taste is little more simple, this white painted cupboard is beautiful with its contrasting black fittings.
The giant blooms painted on this chest of draws really catches the eye. The colours pick out the features of the room beyond.
You could always start small, a gold dipped chair is just really satisfying. Though I would keep the main chair bare wood and dip the top in copper paint, now thats an idea…
