Pssst… I have a secret to tell you. One of the best furniture painting techniques requires no furniture painting skill at all. It’s all about adding fun and funky adornments to your pieces of furniture to add originality to your work of art. Here are 5 easy ways and affordable ways to add flair to your furniture.
Monday I posted about transforming this end table in Emerald Isle. What I didn’t tell you was that I added a faux key hole to give it a vintage vibe.
I bought this set of keyholes at Hobby Lobby, in the scrapbooking section, with my 40% off coupon of course! The keyholes came with brads so I used them to nail the keyholes into the furniture. Poof! Now I have a unique keyhole to an otherwise boring table!
Over at Midwest Living they transformed this piece with wooden appliqués from a hardware store. You can find these at bix box stores or even at Hobby Lobby and Michaels. I love how they chose to paint the appliqués in a contrasting color.

Becky at Infarrantly Creative used tin tiles from the hardware store to dress up her bathroom vanity. These can be purchased for around $4.00 each but give a high-end look.

Soyouthinkyourcrafty.com used tacks to achieve a faux nail head effect. So West Elm on a Dollar Tree budget!

You can always Modge Podge paper onto a dresser to transform it like I demonstrated in this segment on FOX 25. So easy, affordable, and the options are endless!
