3 Ways to Breathe New Life into Your Furniture

Whether you’re looking to add new life to a beloved piece of furniture or just looking to spice up your space, a little bit of paint can go a long way! Don’t limit your creativity with just a coat of paint; try these clever techniques to make a grand masterpiece.

Color blocking


Color blocking is a lot simpler than it looks. You can use one or two colors to achieve this contemporary look. Mark off sections as you paint for a dipped look or you can select two coordinating colors and paint each section a different color like Susanne Worley did for this desk! She used our Farmhouse Paint in Creamy Linen for the body of the desk and French Blue for the drawers. Viola!

Unique textures

textureYou can use our crusting mix, antiquing gel and metallic shimmers to take your furniture from flat and matte to wow! To use the crusting mix, add Cackleize over a coat of Farmhouse Paint. When dry, apply a layer of crusting mix and roll with our sea sponge roller. Top it off with our antiquing gel for a beautiful textured finish!

Renew with a bold color

  1. I have red and black crackled cabinets in my kitchen, do I need to sand them first, my thoughts are if I paint them I will still see the crackle, I want some edges to be sanded to show a brown worn look, if I do mine want the red crackled effect show through or , and should I paint under the white farm house paint, brown after sanding the red crackle off first so, I can sand to show the brown worn look, 2 Questions, because of the crackle should I sand my cabinets first, paint brown before appling the white farm house paint, need HELP>

    1. Hi Wanda! I think you have the right idea. If you don’t want the crackle to show, you will need to sand it off. Then you can paint the edges with a brown paint. Farm house offers a medium brown color called Chocolatte. Let that dry for a few days and then paint the cabinets. When you sand the edges, the brown should show through.

  2. Hi, I recently purchased Farmhouse paint to use on a table and six chairs. Can you tell me the best procedure to paint table TOP. ? Brush, roll, crosshatch or long straight rows. Thanks.

    1. Rennie,

      It would be best to use a short nap or foam roller for larger areas…If you desire a brushed look just lightly go over the area you just rolled with a brush for desired look.

      Happy painting!
