Since then I returned to painting, starting with the table legs and then the area under the table top. When done I was quite happy with the result.
The next pieces to be painted were the coffee and side tables, and then the sideboard and the glass display unit.
At first I left the doors of the sideboard and the glass display unit unpainted, as I had seen some pieces of furniture done this way in Pinterest and had liked them.
After a couple of months I just wasn't feeling the love...so eventually a few weeks later I decided it was time to paint the doors and I'm much happier with the result.
I have a lot of junk stashed into the sideboard and glass display unit, until I start to get rid of my collections I need them...

One day while helping me drop stuff to donate at the Salvos, my husband fell in love with this small wooden table. We brought it home and a while later I decided that painting half the legs of the table would make it fit in better with the two armchairs that belong to the dining room and with the rest of the room in general and he was ok with it.
|I also covered the little stool with the same fabric as the dining room chairs|
My next project is my bedroom furniture, but have to first find the right tone to paint it - looking for something in the turquoise range.
What do you think, doesn't the furniture look a lot lighter? I just wish my sofas weren't all brown, but they will have to last for a while.
The paint used was - Rust-Oleum "Chalked" in Linen White.
