Accent Pieces: Painted Furniture

Thrift shoppers and DIY-ers alike will love this idea: transform a room by taking a bland piece of furniture and turning it into a unique accent with a coat of paint. Recycling (or upcycling) a piece give you a new look and opens dozens of new doors for the rest of the room's decor. Whether it's a piece you already have (think rocking chairs and coffee tables) or a piece you pick up on your next antiquing trip, you can create a new theme and feel with as little as one coat of color.

Create an accent piece that fits the flow of the room:

You can get creative with patterns too:

Don't forget simplicity - sometimes one painted piece is the perfect pop of color in an otherwise clean, white space.

But white pieces make for pretty additions too:

Get creative - try a new piece, a new finish, a bright color or a bold metallic to spice up your home. There are no limits and no reasons not to accent your spaces with personal, colorful touches.
