boldly painting furniture. and happy friday!

one thing i keep seeing around the design world today is interiors with boldly painted furniture. one of my favorite things is painted furniture. i'm not personally a fan of stained furniture, i prefer to lather pieces in paint, give it that much needed face lift, changing the character of the piece, the mood, the dynamic. here are some super fun examples from out there in the painted furniture design world...

get it girl style's blog is always inspiring for painted furniture diy ideas. tamara jumps right into color and transforming furniture, making it better, making it beautiful!

another favorite blog of mine, soul pretty is doing it too! she's grabbing paint brushes and transforming pieces too, for a softer, richer look. love.

a great new-to-me blog find is "the way we are", her home is amazing and she's just finished transforming these chairs, from bland to bold and beautiful! what an amazing job!

i wanted to feature painted furniture this friday, because i'm craving it. i'm in the process of transforming a vintage bureau right now, literally it's in pieces, all sanded and ready to be put back together again. i'll post before pictures next week for a fun diy makeover on avant garde design. do you enjoy painted pieces? have you made over anything recently? if so tell me what you did, i need inspiration for my bureau!!
happy, happy friday! yeah for all of us ;) it's a long weekend too! i hope you all enjoy yourselves and also enjoy great weather in your part of your world. enjoy!
