The Power of Paint {Before & After}

Hello Hello!
I have a quick post for you all today. I wanted to stop in and show you how just a little paint can make a HUGE impact!

I was surfing my Instagram the other day and came across some pictures of furniture that my friend Mallory had posted.

She had some antique furniture in her home that was functional for her space, but didn't fit her taste or personality at all.

She had a friend from church repaint the furniture in white and gray. She also changed out the fabric on the chairs. I think it all turned out beautiful!

How gorgeous are those glass knobs on the cabinet? Not only does a little paint make a difference, but changing out fabrics and accessories can also update your furniture!

Of course I had to do a little before and after so you can see the POWER of paint!

What have you all painted lately that made a huge impact in your space? I have been working on the Hubs office and have just finished painting his desk. I can't wait for you all to see a bit of a transformation!

Thanks Mallory for letting me share your amazing dining room pieces!

Happy Tuesday my friends.


  1. I love the transformation, Amy, so much better. I have a hutch from my husbands side of the family that I'm going to paint over. It's ready to go, I'm just so afraid to touch it. It's around a 100 years old, and really does need to be freshened up. I'll let you know how it turns out!

  2. I have a similar dining room table and chairs that I would love to paint black, but I keep chickening out! Thanks for the inspiration, Amy!

    1. You need to go for it Wendi! (maybe after your move)

  3. That furniture looks incredible, it's really amazing what you can do with a coat or 2 of paint.

  4. It does make such a difference! Beautiful!

  5. The results are so beautiful! What paint did you use?

    1. I believe they used an oil base in semi-gloss. Not sure what name of paint they used. It turned out wonderful!
