Paint: Just Sentsational

Lois Butler - Sunday, May 31, 2015

I love to follow inspirational blogs that give great advice.  Enter the well reasoned opinion of Centsational Girl, Kate Riley, who has loads of practical experience and tons of market place knowledge.  In her own home and make overs, she often turns to paint for tables, chairs, and dressers to update the look or to balance a room.  Here are some impressive photos of her work.


The after shot displays a soft green and white palette and some fabulous glass knobs.  The piece looks refreshed and perfect to use in a child's room. 

Paint provides impact, a transformation, and even a rescue for items that have seen a better day. Check out the before and after shots of this white table from Cherished Bliss.

Sticking with the side table theme, take a look at this beauty.

Starting with a piece that has great lines is critical, but the condition can be less than perfect.  The results can be truly outstanding.

Here are some other wonderful samples of furniture that has made a miraculous change, thanks to the magic of paint.

Mid-CenturyModern Dresser

The body was painted in a coastal blue and the drawers refreshed with a stain which certainly rejuvenated the dresser.  It is destined for a boy's bedroom but it could function in many areas.

The Red Dresser


The top now has a stained wood finish and the glorious red paint was detailed with black.  The black also highlights the new pulls and unique pewter knobs. 


Big Blue Buffet

The curvy front and original hardware is brought to life by the rich and regal blue.  

The Grey Side Table


The stained top has been refreshed and a trendy grey colour has been applied.

Blue Buffet

Elegant lines, turned legs, and a detailed profile make people take a second look at this versatile piece.  Originally a serving piece it might serve a more modern function as a media console or foyer addition.
