We know that some of you have very...err...strong opinions about painting wood furniture, but the owners of these dramatic before and after projects might disagree with all you naysayers. Especially on damaged or cheap wood, a coat or two of paint is an easy, cost-effective and super-cute strategy to refresh tired pieces. Watch me prove it seven times.
Claire's campaign nightstands got a new blue and a new purpose in another room.
Reeves gave her wood a dose of bright white and a little clever geometry.
Rita's built-in got a custom, classy look in subtle dove grey.
This dresser's color change was so dramatic and bold that it got a spotlight placement in the dining room.
Nicolette gave this wooden chest a good going-over with her own handmade stencil.
This dull garage sale score got a dose of color and a hardware refresh too.
Just $15 made Elly's stool look miles more expensive.
