Painted Furniture



I have an old oak school desk that was painted brown. I was going to strip all the old paint off, but it was too hard. I painted it red and blue. Matthew uses it for his nightstand. He likes being able to slip his books in the desk after his nighttime story. Also, I painted the top of my coffee table light blue to match my new living room with it's new upholstery. I hope you will come back and see me work on my vintage sofa.

I like very much. I'm Swedish, and we're not afraid to paint furniture, either. My kitchen table is blue.

You're inspiring me! I just bought a desk at the resale store for $15 and have big plans if it will ever cool off here. Still too hot and humid to paint outside and we don't have basements here. Can't wait to see the couch.
