Brightly Painted Furniture

I am sure you have been noticing a lot of brightly painted furniture in shelter magazines and in blogland. I think it can be such a fun way to give new life to an older or vintage piece of furniture. I have some images that I have gathered to show you all some good examples of fun colors that can be put on furniture.
I think this looks amazing! Notice how all of the artwork has a touch of the purple color family. It is all tied together beautifully with the purple chest.
This looks like it could be in a cabin somewhere and this rough hand-me-down piece has been given a new lease on life with bright colored paint. This is just fun, isn’t it?
With this bright pop of lime green the whole setting is full of life.
This room has a lot of color going on but it is all working together nicely.

Fun fabric and a very fun paint color!
I love this color of green , it has the perfect name to describe it, don’t you think?

I think this is a great idea to choose a fabric and then pull one of the colors out of the fabric and paint the legs. Just think if these legs were stained wood, there would not be the impact that they now have.
Variety is the spice of life.
I must leave you with one last picture just for fun!
Take your pick!!
Think about it. Do you have a piece in your home that you could add a bright color of paint to give it a fresh new look?  I have a reproduction wall clock that I think would look more updated if it were a crisp shiny white paint. I will have to give that some thought.
