5 Ways to Transform Your Furniture

 The latest trend for refinishing furniture is paint, but there’s more than one way to paint a piece of furniture.  Luckily, there are several tutorials out there so even the beginner can successfully turn something old and boring into something fun and beautiful.
Glazing (Antiquing)
Stacy from Not Just a Housewife stenciled this end table with a diamond pattern and then finished it off with glaze.  She has a great tutorial for how to use glaze to give furniture an antique look.
Kelsey from Tattered & Inked also used glaze over bright red paint to make the woodwork pop on this end table.  I love how Kelsey and Stacy both used the same technique, but achieved a very different look.
Stenciling
Liz Marie stenciled the top of this end table, but left out the glaze to make it look fresh and clean.  What a fun piece!
Chalk Paint
Chalk paint has been all the rave for refinishing furniture recently.  I’ve been wondering what all the fuss is about.  Liz Marie talks about the benefits of using chalk paint and she has a fantastic tutorial on how to make your own chalk paint at home.
Painting Laminate
Most of our old furniture at home is laminate and it would be nice to give it a face lift, but paint doesn’t stick to laminate very well.  Centsational Girl shares a tutorial on how to achieve a store bought look with laminate (and without sanding!)
Oil Based Paint
Natty By Design uses oil based paint for many of her pieces.  She share tips on how to paint with oil based paint and what brands work best.  I love her high gloss style.  It makes each piece have an expensive look.
Good Luck with transforming your boring old furniture into eye stoppers!
