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!
Before we get started, download my free furniture painting guide and learn everything I’ve figured out about painting furniture over the last few years.
