Furniture Painting Trends For 2010
Whether you’re looking for a fresh new look or want to repurpose an old piece, furniture painting is a great way to give a piece new life. This is especially true if you’re trying to match furniture to existing decor in your home.
Painted furniture is one of the easiest ways to change the look of an entire room without spending a fortune on a new piece of furniture. Simply painting furniture in a bright or neutral color can bring your room together and make it feel more modern and stylish.
Here are the top trends for painting your furniture this year:
1. BRIGHT PAINTS, DIStressED FURNITURE AND GOLD DETAILS
This paint trend is a simple way to add pops of color to your decor without overpowering the space. Use a bold, bright color to create a statement in your living room or bedroom, and pair it with distressed furniture for added texture.
2. JEWEL TONES AND SPECTACULAR PATTERNS
This pattern trend is all about mixing patterns to achieve depth and interest in your decor. It’s an easy way to add a touch of glam and glamour to any room, but be sure to balance it out with other colors in the room, says interior design blogger Druga.
3. LACQUER FINISHED FURNITURE AND GOLD ACCENTS
Lacquer finishes have always been classic, and they’re still very popular on furniture pieces. They’re especially durable, and they also come in a variety of colors that’ll complement any design style.
4. WHITE SHADED FURNITURE AND GOLD ACCENTS
White is another classic finish for painted furniture that shows no signs of slowing down. It’s easy to apply, low-VOC, and makes a great contrast color with other neutrals.
5. BLUE PAINTED FURNITURE AND GREEN DETAILS
This blue paint color is a fun addition to a kid’s bedroom, and it works perfectly with the rest of the decor in the room. It’s also a great choice for those who need to match existing decor, but don’t have the budget to spend on a new piece of furniture.
6. SHABBY CHIC AND ANTIQUE PAINT SCHEMES
This paint finish is a great choice for those who like shabby chic or antique looks but need a more durable solution that will stand up to daily wear and tear. It’s perfect for those who have small children, or if you just want to add some rustic appeal to your decor.
7. CHERRY TONES AND ANTIQUE PAINT SCHEMES
Cherry tones are always a favorite when it comes to painted furniture. This is a popular trend this year because it’s simple to do, and a fun way to update any piece of furniture.
8. WHITE & GOLD MATCHING COUNTERTOPS
This is a simple technique that adds a bit of gold detail to your countertops. It’s a great way to give your kitchen table some added character and style, but it’s also a great idea for a console table or end tables in your entryway.
