I just finished painting 2 cute thrift store chairs for our laundry room makeover and I can’t wait to show you guys.  I’m getting close to the reveal, but until then I am working with the fabulous All Things Creative team bringing you our very best painted furniture projects.  You are going to flip when you see these “9 Painted Furniture Rescues”!

Here are 9 painted furniture rescues that will knock your paint brushes off the shelf!

You may remember my Black Credenza Makeover from a few months ago?  It’s one of my most favorite transformations yet.  If you click that blue link you can get the paint color and the full tutorial.  Here’s the BEFORE:

The black paint brings out the shape don’t you think?  You may have noticed that switched out the hardware, too.  I then added the pretty pink Peony painting above it because I think it makes it pop.  Then my little pink collection sits on top.

Are you in the mood for more?  Well, here you go.  Just click on the ones that interest you the most.

    Hi Julie, always enjoy reading about what you’re up to. Have a piece a little similar, but thinking dark grey. Already have blah shelves near by. If it doesn’t work, I guess it’s just another pot of paint. What finish did you for?

    You do make it interesting, We wait for your next post, love, Mom and Dad in NY.

    Hi Julie,
    I love the transformations! I love to give old things a new purpose for life and not toss. A friend of mine just recently gave me her old patio furniture, love seat, coffee table, side table and chair, from Pottery Barn, so I knew it was great quality. She was going to give to the trash. It was white, but knew it had potential that a can of spray paint could do. Well after 7 cans of Oil Bronze spray paint, it looks brand new. My husband couldn’t believe it and cost just pennies to do.
    Can’t wait to see your laundry room:-)

      Oh my goodness, Ann! Pottery Barn? That was a huge score. I just bought 3 cans of SP last night ha ha. Oh, and next laundry room post is coming a week from Friday. I have something coming up this Friday that I think folks might enjoy so I snuck it in first. Have a great weekend, almost there! ~ Julie

    The black credenza is amazing. It’s a beautiful piece of furniture to begin with, with all that metal work…but the black just brought it to life.

    Loved your office makeover and the black credensa. Now I’m so excited to see the new laundry room. You have such awesome ideas and I’m sure you inspire many many people along the way. Wish you could come to my house and update the whole place!!! Your ‘new looks’ always give me hope (I just need the energy) lol. Thanks for your awesome blog.

      Hi Carol! I’ll tell you a secret that you may not realize. My house doesn’t look like those pictures. Yah, I mean it does to a certain extent, but I am in my pj’s still today just finished a photo shoot and had to get massive cat hair off the couch to take the pics-haha. So, a little at a time is the way to go. There’s no way a house can be perfect. I know I promised the next laundry room update this week, but I had to push it to next Friday because I have something COOL I did in the living room for this Friday. Can’t wait to show you. Back to the mess I have here! Have a great rest of your week 🙂

    Wow, the black credenza is beautiful! I have used a foam roller for my wood before, but I had to go back and brush it to smooth out the small raised areas it left. Would I have to do this with this paint as well if I wanted a smooth finish? Thanks for the ideas! Your work is amazing!

    • Julie says:

      Hi Karen, It all depends on the quality of the roller. I haven’t had a problem, but my husband who is super picky about this takes tape to his roller before he uses it to get rid of all the loose particles in the roller. Try that with a high quality roller and you should be fine. Make sure there isn’t too much paint in the roller, too. Let me know how it goes! ~ Julie

    Your things are lovely! You sure are inspiring. Thank you!

    I love the new black sideboard too of all the pieces and especially the rack beneath – how unique! I bought an antique sideboard at a resale shop and wanted to paint it black. Hubby wasn’t having it. More to make me happy I replaced the hardware by buying black/white knobs from Hobby Lobby. It will have to do though I tell you “visually” I see this piece in black! lol

    Great job on All the transformations.
    I ‘m still in love with that Credenza makeover and then come that beverage /sewing cart makeover. So unique and great conversation piece when having those special gatherings.
    Let’s face it; Julie, you Rock
    hey girl; Great tip about using tape on paint rollers in removing the excess particles from the roller. I will have to remember that. Thank your hubby for me on that great tip.
