Furniture paint colors can make or break the room design. As you choose colors, consider the feeling you want to create in your home, from a relaxing haven to an energetic space that provides creative inspiration. If you want an open, fresh look in a room, choose white walls with bold colored furniture. The white color will make the most of the natural light in the room, making it feel open and bright; this is especially useful in small spaces or in rooms that do not get much daylight. The brightly colored furniture adds a lively, energetic feel and allows you to capture the colors without overwhelming space. The overall effect will be clean and modern.
For a room with a warm, ground-level feel, use neutral tones. Furniture paint colors walls in a soft sand color and trim in a cream color. Continue the natural color range with furniture in different shades of warm brown; do not be afraid to mix a tonometer to give the room depth. Choose fabrics with a structure like linen, to create a tactile feel in the space and give the chic, natural feel. If you like to experiment with your room decor and change style often, try gray walls. Choose a soft, subtle shade of gray that will create a gentle and sophisticated feel in the room without sticking out. Gray walls work with a range of furniture colors and decorative elements, from fresh greens and oranges to soft creams and neutral.
Sage and White
Sage walls can create a soft, elegant feel in a room and add subtle color. Choose a pale shade of sage green color and cover the walls; Use white knots to balance it. Add brightness to the room with paint white furniture, and mix in a pair of cream-colored pieces to add more depth. If you want a natural feel, use wooden furniture for a traditional look. This color scheme creates a calming, relaxing feeling that works well in a bedroom or living room. Oak furniture lasts for decades with proper care. Unless you apply the color correctly, your white furniture will look yellow and look colored.
Rub the entire furniture with coarse steel wool. This removes all coarse degrees or elevated places that can make your lacquer look uneven. Wipe play with gauze to remove sawdust battered by the wool. Pour equal amounts of turpentine and oil-based white primer into a plastic bucket. Tie them well with the tip of your brush. Paint a smooth, even layer of primer on your play. Work from the bottom up, paint with the grain as much as possible. Allow the primer to dry for about 48 hours, and apply a second primer coat to the opposite grain. Oil-based primer will suck into the wood fibers and help prevent yellowing. It “traps” tannins in the oak and holds your lacquer white.
