What is best way to paint traditional brown furniture?
April 12, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Bedroom needs facelift. Want to paint the traditional brown furniture (not yet sure what color) to liven up the bedroom. Any ideas on what works best and will not chip. If painting furnitue won't work what wall color works well with brown?

My first thought is to find if this is an antique. If it is do not paint it as you will ruin its value. If it is not then my next concern is why paint, it looks beautiful to me and paint is a problem if you change your mind. Look at the back of the cabinet or at the bottom side of a drawer and see what is there.

If the piece is an antique and you have grown tired of it, you could sell it and buy some other piece of furniture for storing clothing.

Before you paint be sure to sand down the original finish to help the new paint adhere. You also could line the drawers with pretty paper to give it a boost.

I would chalk paint antique white. No need to sand with chalk paint. Could you remove the curly top bit on the unit. Might look better without it.
