The Holy Matrimony of Mismatched Furniture- With This Paint, I Thee Wed!

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here to today to unite this mismatched furniture in painted matrimony. The two were never really meant to be together. She (the console) was modern with a sleek style. He (the surround that shelters her) was traditional. A chance meeting led them to one another after my client replaced her floor standing big screen with this flat screen. Despite their differences, they’ve coexisted for some time. I was brought into the picture to add The Finishing Touch that would bring them into perfect harmony!

In addition to the color difference, the wood grain and lines of the center console were much different than the shelves. Note the squared off, beefy base compared to the shelves with were minimal and rounded off.

I removed the doors and filled the screw holes with wood putty before painting. Leaving the doors off really updated the piece!

  1. Wow! What a transformation. You have done your magic again, bringing these two together with a beautiful paint job. No one would know that originally they were not a matching set. I love the color. Great job, Angela.

  2. Classic, simple and timeless. For once, a wedding I didn’t cry at! Thanks for showing us the power of paint and wax, Angela. Shared on FB! Would love a chance to add to my furniture therapy arsenal – so many projects just waiting for a loving touch.

  3. Shared on Facebook. Would love to use this on a small dresser in my garage that’s been waiting for the right color!

  4. Angela, I have been painting furniture for 60 years. Long before it became popular. I painted it because of necessity, we were sooooooo poor with no money but, a desire for pretty surroundings. I can remember my mother had a 1/2 pint if enamel that cost 10 cents to paint the old worn out linoleum floor. Naturally, I ran into and knocked it over and spilled it everywhere. NO problem, she just sponge painted it or she called stipple.
    So, you see I need to learn to use new techniques and new products to make my projects up to date. My system is old fashioned. Clean, strip, sand prime with oil primer and finial step finish with oil enamel.
    I shared this by e-mail with a friend that I have shared my love of painting with. She did a few things with ASCP….hope to be the winner. Would love to try new products. Luv, nancy

  5. Love this make-over. I shared it on Facebook as well as sent an email to several friends who are aware of my interest in getting into the furniture rescue hobby. I have about decided I need a tall piece of furniture for one wall of my great room. This gave me a boost so I guess I better start hitting the thrift shops. I would probable use the gift on that piece. But then, I’ve wanted to make over my sons old 1970’s dresser and hutch, too. Decisions, decisions.

  6. You have done it again, Angela! I am always so amazed at what you can do with with furniture, you turn every piece in to something that amazing everyone. Shared on Facebook.

  7. You have done it again, Angela. Just simply beautiful, you just amaze me all the time at what you can do with furniture and I sure everyone will agree with me. Shared on FB.

    ‘Mismatched’ is too kind of a word to use in my case. Baby N’2 is arriving this Fall and I am trying to combine some furniture pieces so her/his room will will look & feel nice. I have a mix of an old wardrobe, a hand-me down changing table, beat-up crib, cute Ikea dresser painted neon green… and a major headache ;-)
    Chalk paint is THE solution. Especially when my (stayed-at-home mom) budget doesn’t allow a full room makeover and when the quality of paint is important because of health and safety reasons.
    Appreciate this inspiration. Shared on Pinterest!

  11. As along time fan of yours( from an estate sale watching you and your friend pickin LOL), I am always amazed at your posts. Keep it up and I will always be following your advise.

    Every time you finish a piece I fall in love with it and think to myself I can’t love one more than this, then when you fish the next piece I fall even more in love than the last time. Talent like this, beautiful creation like this simple must be shared. It’s stunning Angela, great job!

  13. Shared on facebook. I have 2 hutches from the 60’s and 70’s that my husband inheritied. Dark dark wood. Have comtemplated painting them. If I win contemplation over!
