"I see a red door and I want it painted black" ... The Rolling Stones had it wrong. It's better to have it Painted White, when it comes to refinishing and revitalizing stale old furniture.
A clients budget doesn't always permit for the purchase of all new furnishings. I often will work with a their existing furnishings (refinished of course), and add in accessories to create a fresh new look. Here are a couple of examples of how white paint and accessories change everything.
The first example is with this bedroom makeover. The clients solid wood, American made, headboard was in excellent shape and just need a fresh new look.
We used Benjamin Moore "Snow White" on over 22 pieces in the home, including this headboard.
The custom pillow, with Peter Dunham fabric adds the finishing touch. In addition, the fabric is also available in coordinating wall covering.
The second example of providing a clean updated look is shown in this dinning room redo. The wall to the right, separated the dinning room from the living room. It was removed to open up the space. Hardwood flooring along with french doors to replace the 1970's slider, the sideboards were painted white, chandelier from Currey & Company and new dinning chairs from Made Goods were selected.
