What do you do with well made vintage furniture that looks totally dated thanks to old age and dingy color? Paint it white! It never ceases to amaze me what white paint can do to transform a tired piece into one that is fresh and modern. It was the perfect choice for our women’s room remodel at Beit T’Shuvah for the Designed from the Heart Project.
The hardware was super groovy so we wanted to use that if possible. With a little elbow grease, off came the old paint and voila! Vintage brass becomes good as new and keeps the aesthetic of the pieces that originally caught my attention.
We love the contrast of the white to the fab faux bois floors and it is beautiful against the soothing blue walls. The residents were thrilled with their new furniture. Form and function, the perfect marriage in our eyes. Reinvent, Redesign, Re-purpose.
