Repurposed Furniture Tips and Tricks to Find The Perfect Paint Finish

Whether you are looking to brighten up a dim interior space or just give an old, worn piece of furniture a new lease on life, painting is often the best and most economical way to do so. With literally hundreds of colors to choose from in a range of sheens, repurposing old furniture or adding a new coat of paint is easier than ever before. 

Before you get started, it’s important to take some time to consider your paint choice carefully. This includes thinking about not only the color but also the sheen level that you are going for. 

While flat paints create a completely matte finish that does not reflect much light and thus hides imperfections well, high gloss paints provide the opposite effect – they reflect light beautifully and showcase any imperfections or wonky surface areas clearly. Which look is right for your project will depend on your personal style and individual needs, but it’s always important to make an informed decision when repainting something yourself. 

So take some time to research different paints and finishes, and don’t be afraid to experiment until you find what works best for your space. At the end of the day, repurposing old furniture or revitalizing any interior living space with a fresh coat of paint really does make a big difference.  Here’s how to pick the perfect finish for your project.
