Tips on buying furniture to paint

What to look for in a piece of furniture you're going to paint?

I've been painting furniture for couple of years now, and there are some things that I've picked up through my experience that I'd like to share with you. There is a lot of furniture available to paint. Beautiful pieces. I have decided that there are also some to just walk away from. Since secondhand furniture is so plentiful, and you can get pieces for such a low cost (at least where I live), I have decided that some pieces are just not worth the time to restore. There are four things that…

BEFORE and AFTER: The Makeover of a Vintage Vanity

This pretty vintage vanity has been sitting in my garage for over a year. Surprise, surprise. Most things I make over have an excruciating wait time in my garage (a.k.a. "triage") before figure out what

Since we haven’t gotten our new mantel installed yet {I’ll give you a sneak peek at it soon!}, I asked Beth if it would be okay if I linked up a Valentine’s vignette to...Read More

Colorful and Charming Teen Bedroom - Classy Clutter

This is my sister Sophie’s room. Sophie is in 8th grade now and a few months ago her room felt to young for her. Once upon a time this was a kid garden room but is now a perfect spot for her and her teenage friends to hang out. I painted this cute desk for her and the knobs were found at Hobby Lobby. The adorable 4 foot chalkboard I also made for her using some MDF and chalkboard paint. (If you are in the AZ area I do custom make the chalkboards and sell them, if you are interested email me…

typewriter with dark wax and white | Miss Mustard Seeds Milk Paint

Let’s all admit that we love some color, and the MMSMP line has something for everyone…I am personally a huge fan of the blues. My house is full of them. But when you can’t make up your mind on colors, stay neutral. Classics like white and black will never go out of style, and you can accent with them no matter your taste. I wanted to share some tips for you when using blacks, namely milk paint blacks. If you have played with Typewriter before, and had some snags- or perhaps felt the color…

Mint Desk Makeover

Holy bananas… another project finally checked off the to-do list in my office! Possibly the most important piece of furniture in any office is the desk, and mine has definitely seen better days. It was passed down from my grandmother and is still in great condition, but with my freshly-painted white office, this old desk was…

Roll-Top Desk Makeover!  Such a dramatic before & after.  Amazing what fresh paint and a little vision can do!  Oh, and wait until you see the pop of color with the drawers open....

Roll-Top Desk Makeover: Business on the Outside, Party on the Inside!

How’s this for an analogy? I believe I have created the mullet haircut of furniture transformations. Now, hear me out: what sets a mullet apart is its element of surprise, right? “Business in the front, party in the back,” as the saying goes. And similarly, with my new and improved roll-top desk, we’ve got businessRead more

So pretty! Coral desk makeover in Sherwin Williams Begonia


I was soooo excited when my customer wanted me to paint this sweet desk for her in one of my all time favorite colors! She saw the "diamond in the rough" piece in my inventory and instantly knew it would be perfect for her space. It was an old desk and needed a lot of TLC with all the dings it had, but it is made of solid wood and sturdy. The glass knobs helped make this pretty thing even prettier:) Look at this sad, sad desk before I got my hands on it:( All ugly and alone with no hardware.

Rivulet (SW 6760) is perfectly paired with the gold-plated hardware on this desk.
