Whether it’s a planned re-decoration or a re-decoration job that you’ve just completed, there might be a problem. Because, it’s at one of these two stages that you might discover your old pine furniture just doesn’t seem to go well with the new decor.
Perhaps it’s the newness the new paint on the walls, doors and skirting! And, the obvious contrast with the yellow/ orange tinge of your pine furniture. But, you know there’s a solution. Because we are often asked to paint old pine furniture when customers have home decoration planned…or they've just finished.
You can always paint furniture as an easy, simple and effective way to go. With this example, our customer chose green for an old pine cabinet. They selected Farrow and Ball‘s Breakfast Room Green to work with Farrow and Ball’s James White emulsion paintwork on the walls and skirting. A good palette combination.
Green Is The Colour
We gave the green painted cabinet and its TV cupboard companion several coats of Breakfast Room Green before we finished with a layer of dark wax to seal the finish.
Dark wax isn’t always a preferred choice but it really works well with the Farrow and Ball dark colours. It’s an effective choice for the blues, greys and greens in the palette and is an instant ageing application that preserves the colour base.
Both the green painted cabinet and the green painted TV cupboard are now in situ in their newly decorated home. The contrast with the James White walls is very effective. We all know that neither piece of furniture was a family heirloom! But a green painted base has set them up for a whole new lease of life.
