Drawing inspiration from the colorful flag wall I hung in the boys’ bedroom, I finally painted a faux bamboo chest that had been sitting in our garage from a Craigslist haul several years ago.
The laminate top and smooth finish on this vintage Thomasville faux bamboo piece made it easy (and fast) to spray paint.
I used a couple of coats of Valspar’s Flat Caramel Honey—a deep, golden yellow.
Have an old piece that you want to paint but don’t want to invest more money in new hardware? Try painting all of the handles and pulls the same color as the furniture. I think it gives it a more modern look, and you don’t have to remove any hardware or buy anything new.
(These wall lamps were less than $40.)
