Color my world

I'm on this paint kick, and I want to paint everything in my house.  I'm pretty sure this will never happen (as I still have the office bookcases to paint)  but these photos have given me some inspiration for pretty painted furniture.

I'm digging all the blues I'm seeing. I love white but it's fun to see some other colors too.

Naomi Stein said...

love all of these! So fresh and pretty. My problem is I've painted too many things white. Now I want a little color and a little wood back...

Paint and craigslist go hand in hand!

Fantastic round-up! I'm really struggling to pick one I don't like--I love them all!

I'm on a similar kick! Every day I go back and forth on whether or not to paint my coffe table/dining table/storage bench/bookcases, etc. If I don't get control of this soon, my house will look like Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory.

Love these painted items, they just add a pop or zest to each room! Like a bright accessory!

Well shoot, I'm inspired. If it wasn't so late in the day I'll pull out a can of paint and get started on something! Janell

I can totally relate. Since we bought our house and either bought or inherited a lot of used furniture it has become the joke that nothing is safe, I paint anything and everything :) Gotta breathe new life right!

Rikke said...
