Painted Furniture

Written on 5th October 2018

When we think about decorating and adding colour to our homes, we tend to focus on the walls, leaving the interior trim and furniture as an after-thought. But when it comes to creating beautiful interiors, it pays to get creative with paint. By custom painting furniture pieces or introducing colour to your interior trim (such as skirting boards and base boards, chair or dado rails, banisters, doors and door frames), you can inject personality and interest to your décor.

Whether your style is bold and bright or soft and subtle, a freshly painted dresser, chair or table will revive your interiors and introduce a splash of your favourite hues to your home.

There is something exciting and satisfying about finding an old piece of furniture for not much money, seeing its potential and renovating it to look lovely in your home...
