Too Much Brown Wood? To Paint or Not to Paint Antique Furniture #NewPost https://europeanfinds.com/blogs/european-finds/to-paint-or-not-to-paint-antique-furniture #linkinbio#BrownIsBeautiful
Anyone who is passionate about antiques will have an opinion on whether or not you should ever paint antique furniture. But if you're equally passionate about interior design, at what point can you legitimately say, "There's too much brown wood in this room: its time to lighten a few pieces with paint." Or, "I love the piece but the finish can't be saved - let's paint it!" Painted wood furniture has been around for centuries - just look at gorgeous antique French country furniture, faded to beautifully muted shades of cream, yellows, blues... any color you can imagine! Were those pieces originally painted by the craftsmen, or were they painted a century later by a homeowner who simply wanted a new, lighter look for their brown wood furniture?
Today, some of the furniture paints available are so authentic looking that they can fool an antiques expert - and have! #BrownIsTheNewBlack#PaintedAntiques#AntiqueFurniture
