When you have a piece of furniture that does not fit with the new décor of a room, furniture painting is a creative alternative to buying an expensive new piece. You may have had your piece for many years and functionally it serves you well, but perhaps the brown wood no longer fits with your room’s new colour scheme.
Furniture painting uses oil or acrylic eggshell paint or chalk paint to give a old, sturdy piece of furniture a new lease of life. Instead of being an aesthetic liability to your room’s overall design, this very same piece can accent the room or help to tie together the room’s styles and colours.
When furniture painting, we typically are working with a single colour, so colour matching is a useful technique to deploy in the consultation phase. For techniques such as gilding, stencilling and applied fine art, see decorative furniture.
