Painted Furniture Inspiration

I still have my Pinterest Board: Painted Furniture, but after finding more photos, I think this topic deserves its own post.

Thinking of this type of pink for M’s dressing table… (without all that fluffy stuff on top) 
Love the color and all the details of the wood.
Love, love the color and details. 
Skip the writing on them.

I found this great corner unit on £15 pounds – I’d love to get it, Nils is heading out of town for the week… perhaps if its still online next week, I can see about getting it for £10.  It might be too big to fit in the car at H: 130cm, D: 40cm & W: 40cm.  It is items like this, you can get at the auction for next to nothing!  I think it would be great, painted a fun color in the corner in our dining room!

Here are some cute painted corner hutches… but even just white or two toned would be nice too.

This beautiful piece is for sale on for £75.  In fact, she has TWO of them!  It is called a “Dutch Dresser” – no idea why it was called that, perhaps it’s a Dutch Colonial style or Pennsylvania Dutch??, but with a quick google search for images and I noticed most of them had the rounded top. I’ll have to ask. 

Anyway, at that price it’s way too expensive for me, but it’s solid oak, so I get the price – if I can only find a piece like this at the auction only cheaper!  It would be so amazing done up!

Here is one done up from The Painted House UK (Facebook) while not how I’d personally do it, but it looks great.  They have some great things on their site & loads of inspiration and ideas!

Author: Stars Stripes and Mayonnaise

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
