Happy Hour : Grab a Paintbrush
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.
Love this bamboo table transformation.
Old kitchen chairs spring to life.
Wicker chest painted a dark green.
Settee in black chalk paint.
A daring chest - goldleaf and randomly placed drawer pulls.
Wicker chairs in stone grey.
Cohesive table, chairs and buffet all in a matte dark charcoal.
Flat black and a bit of distress revamps an old dresser. For fun, let's look at some stunning before and after photos.
Kitchen table freshened.
OK, this would take more than one Happy Hour but just look at the results.
Coffee table might be even better in a muted chalk paint.
A 1970's bureau for a bedroom or dining room.
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.
