Bedroom Furniture Makeover
I've had this bedroom furniture for over twenty years. It was natural pine at first, then I painted it white. I thought about giving it a fresh coat of white paint, but decided to go for a color this time! I haven't painted our bedroom walls yet because I'm still trying to decide what color! I sat and contemplated whether I wanted to paint the furniture a dark gray or green! Since I have green cornices and a green pillow I thought hmmm... OK green it is!
The hardware is about to get another makeover too!
Oh I have my work cut out for me! There goes my weekend! Oh well it's for a good cause!
Let's get started!
Oh so many greens! I finally picked Valspar's Olive garden 315-4. I was a little nervous in case I chose the wrong color, but I really love it! I lightly sanded the furniture with an electric sander just to smooth out any rough areas.
All you need to get started is a small roller, tray for paint, paint and a good paintbrush! You also want to make sure you have a drop cloth to protect your carpet or flooring! Make sure to open a window for ventilation!
I used cardboard to stick the hardware in to make them easier to paint! They took a couple of coats, but they turned out great! This is a great way to cover all of them all at once! I used Rust-oleum's Metallic oil rubbed bronze paint and primer in one for around $7. Amazing coverage!
Two coats later..
I'm in love and I don't want to leave my bedroom now! Who knew a tin of paint could change a room completely! For around $45 I get to sleep in a beautiful room. I'm so glad I never got rid of these pieces because I saved a bunch of money and I love how they turned out!
I must admit I was a bit nervous that the hardware would have been too dark, but once I put them all back on I really liked it! I love that the product I used has primer in it!
