Our armoire had a pine finish that was too orange and had quite a few knicks. Before:
A new paint job was just what it needed. I love the pop of colour it adds to the family room/kitchen.
Don't be afraid to paint! Painting furniture can make such a huge difference if you don't like the original colour, if the original colour doesn't suit the room it is intended for, or if you just want a fresh new change.
We are really enjoying this blue right now, but when I feel like a change, I can always paint a new colour over top and I can even distress it to show the blue underneath.
The DIY Club has a 31 days of Paint Projects link party and I am linking up. 31 Days of Paint Projects is where we can show off rooms or furniture we have painted, and the top 10 projects will be featured. The winner will get 2 gallons of Dutch Boy paint–so get painting!

"Start by making your own home a place where happiness and love abound, through your love for each member of your family and for your neighbor.
Try to put in the hearts of your children a love for home. Make them long to be with their families. So much sin could be avoided if our people really love their homes. "
The real things haven't changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures; and have courage when things go wrong.
