Many people are amazed to see how newly painted walls can totally transform an old room. It can really make a room look brand new! While it’s common knowledge that a fresh coat of paint can go a long way, did you know that those transformations are not limited to just walls? Painted bedroom furniture is a great DIY alternative for anyone looking to revamp a room on a budget.

Updating the Old

All the furniture in your home may very well be in great working condition, but maybe they’re starting to seem a little less exciting than when you first bought them. Since there’s nothing wrong with them, though, there’s no reason to go out on a shopping spree! Transform them into something new by simply painting them a different color. You might be surprised how much brighter, bolder, or more vibrant your bedroom becomes by painting your bed frame a different color.

Finding New Purpose

Repurposing old, unused items in your home into something new has recently become a trend that we are in love with. We’ve seen cabinet doors get turned into bedside tables, mason jars turned into soap dispensers, old sinks turned into planters, and even wood pallets turned into platform beds. There are endless possibilities for painted bedroom furniture made out of items that may be otherwise thrown away.
