Classic, Timeless Wood Furniture...Putting the Paintbrush Away

Although I love, love painted furniture as it is such an economical way to update furniture that is outdated and timeworn, I love to rescue those classic wood beauties too. The timeless warmth of wood will never go out of style for me and I put away the paintbrush for these furniture finds...

    I am so with you on this one Sophia. I too love the warmth of wood. Though the look of well painted furniture is very likable, nothing is more beautiful than the richness of natural wood grain on a piece of furniture to me.

    I soooooo agree!!!
  • Jessica @ Dear Emmeline
    totally agree! there are just some pieces that shouldn't be painted and I personally love a mix of wood and painted elements in a room!

    Beautiful work! Love how you've "styled" your photographs too. I'm really working hard on my styling skills.

    This is really really amazing.Such a great concept with a huge impact! I love it! I saw your tutorial and went out and bought myself a piece of furniture to paint. I can’t wait!

    I love original woods...So, I don't paint my furniture - just shine and oil it up to keep it in good condition.

    My husband would divorce me or maybe even bury me in the backyard if I ever dared to paint pieces as stunning as yours. They are just so lovely!

    So glad you are the one that got these pieces! They are beautiful and it would have been a crime to have painted any of them.

    If I got pieces that were as beautiful as those I would not paint either. The ones I get have real problems that a bit of oil and cleaning can not fix.
