Isn't this desk super? As you probably know, I'm a huge fan of paint, and this is just another reason why. If you can pick up some old pieces of furniture at antique shops or yard sales, don't be afraid to slap on a bold color. This emerald green would be too strong on a wall (or on four walls!) but look how beautiful it is in a smaller dose. All you need a a strong arm to do some sanding, a good primer, and a paint brush. Spraying paint onto furniture is usually going to give you a more even coat, but if you are like me and you don't have a sprayer or you paint in the middle of your kitchen while there is snow outside, a brush will serve you very well.
If any of you have pictures of fun pieces of furniture that you have refinished, I would love to see your pictures! And maybe even post a few pictures here! Just send me an email...firstname.lastname@example.org.
