8 Painted Projects

It’s the first week of doing weekly Friday Features from the Remodelaholics Anonymous party… and I’m already late! That’s our summertime schedule for you. 🙂 In case you missed it, we’re going to try something new and share some new features from the talented bloggers at the link party AND from all of you talented readers, every Friday (and on Thursday night if I’m on my game). So if you want to be featured, link up your best projects here (or below), and share your best photos here or by messaging us on Facebook.

If you have a free day or a free weekend, you can try one of these painted projects! Paint is the cheapest, easiest way to get a new look.

8 Paint Projects You Could Do This Weekend

Paint is one of my favorite materials. It’s great for quick update on a piece of furniture or an accent wall, and it’s even great for staining wood (any color you want!). How have you been using paint lately?

And a few projects from our Facebook crowd — see all of our reader projects here. 

Melissa showed this table some love! “I bought the 2nd hand table which was painted shabby White & waxed (pic1). Next, I used paint stripper to get it off, back to bare wood(pic2), the sticker said made in Indonesia, (I was thinking of just pine, but I think it is a harder wood). Then I stained the top in a Baltic Pine, about 3 coats to deepen it, and then a clear sealer over the top (pic3), and undercoated the rest. Lastly, I used a beautiful Dulux Super Enamel Black High Gloss, this paint is gorgeous to work with.”

Lorene has been behind the scenes here at Remodelaholic for more than a decade! She believes that planning projects and actually completing them are two different hobbies, but that doesn't stop her from planning at least a dozen projects at any given time. She spends her free time creating memories with her husband and 5 kids, traveling as far as she can afford, and partaking of books in any form available.
