Whether it’s just painting the legs of a chair or giving a sideboard a full revamp, furniture makeovers are fun and creative projects and now they’re also quick and easy!

Update with black

Instantly transform old or worn furniture with paint to achieve dramatic results. Try painting an old or outdated chair in jet black for a contemporary look. Setting the chair against pale, cream walls and medium-toned flooring will draw attention to your masterpiece.

Tie your furniture in with your walls by painting them in the same color. This will create a sense of unity in the space, helping it feel neat and tidy. Pale-yellow is a fresh and playful way to experiment with color-blocking. Use the bench surface to display your favorite books and ornaments. Large plants will help give the space a relaxed feel.

If you’ve gone for fairly neutral or muted tones for larger parts of a space, adding brightly colored furniture is a great way to create a point of interest. It’s also the perfect opportunity to get experimental and creative! A joyous, bright yellow tone immediately updates a piece of furniture, transforming it from average to show-stopping. Complete this contemporary look with architectural ornaments.

If you’ve got a classic piece of furniture that could do with a new lease of life, give it a makeover with color. A deep maroon will give a sense of opulence and pairing it with white will give it a contemporary feel. If you’re feeling creative and want to extend your makeover, find a complimentary tone for your walls, a light dusky pink is a timeless tone that will bring the look together.
