One of the biggest, and probably the most wonderful trends in home décor is painted furniture. Painted furniture is great because it can be adapted to any style and any room; plus, it works really well for adding personality to your home or apartment. You still get to have colorful options that are not permanent changes to your space.

  1. Paint It Yourself!

    Painting furniture is a huge trend for people trying their hand at their very own DIY project. It’s a fun way to show your artistic side. It also allows you to choose your very own furniture piece and the paint color. If you are not a do-it-yourself type of person, that’s fine – painting furniture isn’t for every one. But if you’d like to take a stab at it, here’s an awesome DIY chair painting tutorial.

  2. Contact a Pro!

    If painting your own furniture caused a panic attack, no worries! There are many people around your community you can hire to do it for you. If you have a piece of furniture that could use a makeover, try performing an internet search or ask some friends for references (maybe your friend knows a closet DIYer!). Be sure to see some of the work before you hire someone. Everyone has a different painting style, and you don’t want to end up with a vintage, distressed piece when you love modern.

  3. Shop Your Favorite Retailer!

    Would you rather find your furniture already painted and ready to go? Many retail stores have caught onto the trend and have many options already. Another great way to find painted furniture is to browse markets where local vendors sell items they have created.
