Would you like to add a pop of the color green in your home? Check out 25 Green Painted Furniture Makeovers to get inspired!
We are back to furniture makeovers, today (so far, we’ve covered gray and white painted furniture). March is coming to a close, but it’s the dawn of spring and home to St. Patricks day, so green is a fitting color to take a look at this month. I mentioned in the Exterior Colors Post for March, it’s one of my favorite colors. So, I’m happy to bring you 25 lovely furniture makeovers using green paints.
Green is bold and bright, but due to its prevalence in nature, it can blend with many color palettes. For example, a potted green plant looks welcoming in any home. Similarly, green furniture can mix in with many styles and colors.
In the bedroom, mix in green furniture through bed Frames, night stands, and dressers. I’ve considered painting my son’s bed frame in a Kelly Green, and this example from Makely Home only makes me more excited about that possibility.
If you aren’t brave enough to add green painted furniture in the main living areas, the office is a might feel like a safer place to add a pop of bright color. Try just adding bold green with a desk chair, for example.
