Before & After: Painted Furniture & Cabinetry Projects

Best of 2011

The power of paint can't be denied - we all know how it can transform a room, but the effect is also powerful when it comes to projects that involve the application of paint to furniture and cabinetry. Here are ten examples from the archives (including one where the "furniture" didn't even exist prior to the paintjob!); check out the befores in this gallery and then click through on each for the always-fun-to-see afters.
