This warm, inviting piece was painted by Abbey from Painted Home Goods with the color, Driftwood! Come see how she did it.


Sometimes a bland piece of functional furniture just needs a refresh to inspire new year organization! That was certainly true of this desk.

I prepped the slick surface to receive paint by lightly sanding and cleaning well. While I loved the idea of a bold color, neutral often sells best…and neutral can be far from boring!

I painted two coats of Country Chic Paint Driftwood, a warm medium tone taupe. The legs got a refresh with some dark gel stain. New almond colored knobs finished off the makeover.

Abbey {Painted Home Goods}

As a mom to twin boys, I am always busy. Twice the fun, twice the work! My Twin Tornadoes and salvaging neglected furniture are my passions. If a twin mom in a small apartment can fix up and paint furniture, so can you! In today’s throw-away culture and tendency towards cheaply made, mass produced home goods, I seek to provide something different, something unique. Bringing new life to discarded finds is my way of contributing to the responsible thrifting counterculture that has become a growing trend. When shopping with PaintedHomeGoods you can feel good about what you buy. Enjoy!
