It can be overwhelming to think about a whole piece makeover – especially a larger piece of furniture! Have an imposing oak bureau or a large kitchen table – with 2 extra leaves! – that just seems too large to tackle? Here are 5 quick, easy and inexpensive ways to update that piece of furniture, instead of the whole project.

Notice how just painting the legs and drawers with MudPaint Moss accentuates the entire piece!

Here are our top 5 inexpensive ways to update furniture pieces.

  1.  Paint only the legs.  Chairs and tables can be transformed simply by painting the legs.  It’s a quick way to update and can really accentuate the top portion!
  2.  Conversely, you can paint ONLY the top.  Painting the top of a table, desk, dresser, or chest will completely transform it.
  3.  Paint the drawers.  Drawers on a dresser, desk, or cabinet can be painted to make it pop.
  4.  Paint the details.  Add paint to the details of a piece to make it eye catching.
  5.  Finally – look for a quick new hardware solution for your piece. A quick swap-out of new handles will give your project a fresh look!

It is easy to apply and the update will last for years to come.
