It’s me, Allison, and today I want to chat with you about rehabbing furniture. We often rehab furniture for our home staging inventory and interior design clients. Many times, our clients have a piece they love that needs a bit of a makeover to transform it into even more of a special piece. This piece could be something that your grandma passed down to you or you fell in love with at a flea market. Often times we see pieces that have fantastic potential and just need a little TLC! I’d like to give you some guidance for how to go about updating your favorite pieces.
When rehabbing a piece of furniture, Monica and I like to use two lines of paint: Sherwin Williams’ Pro Classic or Ben Moore’s Advanced. Both of these paint lines have an additive that is durable and gives pieces a nice finish. These paints look great and are ideal for those who plan on moving furniture quite a bit. Below I’ll show you 3 pieces that we rehabbed and take you through our rehab process with each piece.
This piece is a coffee table that we found at Restore in Timonium. Restore has lots of inexpensive pieces that can add a ton of value to a room while staying within your budget. We sanded this coffee table down and painted it with Sherwin Williams Naval, which was recently named 2020’s color of the year. The transformation on this piece really is incredible!
This buffet was donated to us and updating it with Sherwin Williams Blue Peacock paint has transformed this piece into a focal point for any room. This color is so rich and stunning. We could not be happier with how this piece turned out!
One of our friends gifted us this third piece. She sanded it down, primed it, and painted it with Ben Moore’s Edgecomb Gray. We think it looks fabulous, and we are so impressed with how inexpensive this piece was from start to finish!
