Welcome to Painted Furniture! Painting furniture is one of the quickest ways to transform a piece with the biggest impact for very little money. Painting a piece of furniture is one of the easiest ways of bringing in an entire rooms decor easily with minimal effort. Cole & Son Wallpaper had an interesting photo which featured a Bentwood chair. Instead of painting the whole chair a solid white they taped off the bottom of the chair for a sharp modern look. Consider staining your furniture your favorite color of stain and painting the rest of the furniture a color which would coordinate with your room. Working with 70% painted / 30% natural I think is the best way to approach this style. Think about how smart this would look on a desk!
