Happy Hour : Grab a Paintbrush

March 31, 2019

 

 

Hot pink might not be for everyone, but don't you love what happened to this old secretary desk?  Maybe a Happy Hour is best spent with a can of leftover paint as coloring a piece of furniture might be the happiest way to recharge a room.  Let's look at some examples of fun, sophisticated and thoughtfully painted furniture.  Even if hot pink isn't our thing, these ideas -in any hue- are ripe for the picking.

OK, this would take more than one Happy Hour but just look at the results.

Some original wood remains.

For my Happy Hour, a spray can of white primer freshened up this small table (Alameda flea market) in our sunroom.  A black tray holds a collection of yellow objects and his/her binoculars as these chairs look out onto our regional park.  Whatever you paint during your Happy Hour, a smile is sure to come your way.
