How to Paint Furniture Ideas & Tips

I love paint.  Spray Paint. Latex Paint. Chalk Paint. Finger Paint. Oil Based Paint.  You name it, I love to play with it.  And, almost always before I begin a project I’ll browse online to see what others have created and what techniques they’ve used to create their project.  So today I’m rounding up a few of the sites I’ve found that have a variety of useful painting techniques and tutorials.

Pretty Handy Girl  has some great tips and techniques for distressing & aging furniture with paint & stain.



Great tutorial from House of Smiths on painting stripes.  Love how the little detail really changes the table.

New to spray painting or always want to no more (like me)?  Great post with spray painting tips and several others that are paint related on All Things Thrifty.


One of my fav spots for painting furniture ideas and tips is Centsational Girl.  She has the magic touch when it comes to paint and stain.  The particular post is a great how-to on restaining a table top.

Miss Mustard Seed creates some amazing pieces with paint and this post is an informative tutorial on white washing.
