Updating french provincial furniture
But painted furniture is not a fad, and it’s not going to die. Sure, it has waxed and waned in popularity from one decade to the next, and it will probably continue to wax and wane in popularity from now to eternity, but it’s most certainly not something new, and it’s not a fad.
But also, I think I might feel a bit guilty painting have an issue with painting the wood? Paint can be stripped if I ever get tired of it, and y’all know me well enough to know that I’d have no problem putting the time and effort into stripping it if that’s the look I decide I want in the future.No, I think it’s more the anti-paint brigade (a.k.a., the “wood purists”) that I fear.Have y’all ever noticed how vicious people can get over a piece of painted furniture?So painted wood furniture has been around for centuries, and it’s not going anywhere. People love to tout the greatness of Chalk Paint, but it doesn’t get (or deserve) the credit for the popularity of painted furniture.But the bottom line, in my humble opinion, is that people have the right to do whatever they want to do with their furniture, regardless of how old it is, who made it, or what kind of wood it’s made of.
