I hope you have all been having a wonderful holiday season!
I am so enjoying a little break and spending time with my family just hanging out!
I am excited for the new year and beginning new projects in our home. Painting furniture and accessories is such a wonderful way to give new life to items that you are maybe not so excited about anymore. Or maybe you found that great side table at a yard sale, and you just need some inspiration! Enjoy and be inspired by 15+ Awesome Furniture Painting Projects You Can Do!
Here are 15+ Amazing Furniture Painting Projects!
Let’s get started with one of my projects. My mom bought me this antique desk in really bad shape at a yard sale for $15. I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint to revive it for my teen son’s room. You can find the complete how-to HERE from Our Southern Home.
Emperor’s Silk Dresser with dark wax by Sonya from At Home with the Barkers creates a striking piece!

You can even update a piece with just stripes from Just a Girl and Her Blog! Abby adds grain sack stripes to an already painted chest for a quick update! Stripes are hot right now!
Chateau Grey is my absolute favorite Annie Sloan Chalk paint color. Sharon from Mrs. Hines Class painted this old dresser, and it is now used as a media cabinet! Where is the “Love” button?
Check out this whimsical beauty by Amanda from Mommy is Coo Coo. The fabric and color choice are such fun!!! I have a major crush on this chair!

This piece by Pamela From My Front Porch To Yours shows that you shouldn’t look over a badly damaged piece. This water damaged secretary is painted with not one, but two chalk paint colors. The inside is left stained!

Last, but not least by any means is Julie from Lilacs and Longhorns. She transformed this Craig’s List find with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint AND added bun feet. Visit for the how-to.
I encourage you to look around your home. Is there something that you are just bored with? Why not try your hand at paint! Scared or nervous? Practice on a yard sale or thrift store find first. You can even practice on scrap wood!
I’d love for you to pin the individual projects…just visit the individual blogs from the links and pin directly from their project. It will make it much easier for you and others to find it down the road.
You can follow Our Southern Home on PINTEREST.
I share lots of behind the scenes of projects in progress and some family along the way on INSTAGRAM. Instagram is such fun. I’d love for you to follow!
