My students often ask me, "What colour do you think I should paint my bookshelf/coffee table/dining suite?" or whatever it is they want to paint.
Without seeing their decor it's really difficult to give advice, however the first question I ask is, "What colours do you have in the room already?". The next question I ask is: "What colours do you like?" These two questions form the basis of our conversation and are a great place to start.
From here we look at the Upcycled & Co. Furniture Paint colour chart and talk about COLOUR MIXING so they can achieve the colour they are after.
Here is a Pinterest board I created when choosing our new colour scheme,
And, here's another selection of colour schemes I have put together for you on Pinterest,
There's a lot to think about, so as I said earlier, take your time. I know I often change my mind on colours, so if you're the same, choose something that can easily be altered at a later date.
Most of all, enjoy the process of making your home beautiful and have fun with your furniture painting.
Until next time,
