Fun & Fresh

Hi friends! Hope you’re having a great week! I’ve been busy getting back into the teaching and school routine, but wanted to share one of the ways I used paint I already had to breathe new life into bedroom furniture.

Even though I would love for each of our rooms to look like a two-page spread in a home decor magazine,ย I have to face reality sometimes.

The reality; the bedroom furniture my husband grew up with was in a spare bedroom upstairs in our house. It still had his bedding from his days living as a bachelor so naturally the bedding was manly (gray, black, white). I knew painting the headboard and side table gray would give new life to the bedding and I already had gray paint from our guest bathroom vanity, perfect!

Here is the bedroom furnitureย before:

Fresh look! Now, for wall art above the bed.

As I’ve mentioned in other posts, using paint with a primer in it makes for a quick and easy painting process.

Once the paint dried I chose new knobs at Hobby Lobby to update the bedside table.

Here’s another painted headboard and bedside table in our guest room:

New knobs and a fresh coat of paint; both small and inexpensive ways that I made over the furniture in these rooms.

Sometimes a fresh coat of paint (that you already have) is all it takes!

    1. These pieces I didn’t sand/prep or anything. I did two-three coats. I think having the primer helped, but that’s the reason I love chalk paint and then making it look shabby on purpose so it’s supposed to look uncovered in some spots ๐Ÿ˜Š
