30+ Painted Furniture Before and Afters

Painted furniture has been all the rage in the past few years and I definitely got caught up in the trend. (Although it’s amazing to me how quickly and dramatically trends have changed!) If you’re willing to look through this post, be prepared for maybe a little inspiration, and to be witness to some bad decisions and crappy photos. It’s all part of the learning experience!

Here’s 30+ painted furniture before and afters:

  1. French dresser painted turquoise – One of my favorite projects! At the time this style of dresser was in high demand! 
  2. Coffee table

    Glazed coffee table
  3. Antique dresser

  4. Picture frame

  5. Mid century dresser. I hated this set at first and tried to make it shabby chic. Thank goodness I didn’t get rid of it. It fit in perfectly with the mid century trend painting navy!
