A case for painting furniture

This was a curb find. Missing one of the pulls. I forgot to take a pic before I started, so the before shows fill where the pulls were.

That's cute and interesting. I have never seen anyone paint these types of tables, especially the leather.

I have a round leather table that I would love to be able to spruce the leather up, but not paint it.

You can stain leather. I had to stain the seat in one of my saddles after it got motor oil dripped on it and it turned out really nice. That table is really cute. I just painted a hutch in my pantry blue this week. Its a guick inexpensive way to liven up a piece that just isn,t working anymore.

I'll try painting anything. I have a dining room chair with some sort of vinyl like seat-that has held paint pretty well for a year now. It was orange yellow and brown-and is now a greenish blue.
