Pink and Gold Painted Furniture Makeovers Furniture Lovers Must See

Blank canvases have been created on the back of Farmhouse white.  My prediction is that it has become the perfect blank slate for our new fascination with Bohemian style decor.   More and more we are seeing a desire for mixes of rustic old world and bold color choices like we find with pink and gold painted furniture.   While we often think of pink painted furniture as child’s play, you will see that there is a lot of pink painted furniture for adults! This comes into play even more for those that adore that a glossy spray paint finish as well as those that love the gold.

Meet “Curvy Coral”

What? Do you not see all those lovely pinks and corals?  Yes, this is what my sad little chest looked like before I began working on her. I would have to choose which colors I wanted to work with but I knew they would all fall into the pink, coral, and red family.

 

I decided to use Begonia and Blush from Wise Owl Chalk Synthesis Paint.  This is by far my favorite brand of products to use and I also retail it so that just made sense.  Begonia would be more bold than I prefer but thats why I enjoy blending and washing the paints creating a soft dreamy look.


The first question most ask is; How is chalk paint different from regular paint?  That answer can be found in “Chalk Style Paint or Latex: The Choice is Yours”  I invite you to go take a look there.


After I gave the chest a good cleaning and scuffing the surface, I wiped her down again and sealed with shellac.  Then it was time to paint!  I began by laying a good coat of Begonia.  …and I quickly grabbed the blush to work it in there too.  Using a water bottle I misted the surface to keep everything moving.

Yes, I know.  Just stay with me.    I continued to work the pink blended palette until I was happy then I reached for some image transfers I created on temporary tattoo paper.

Once applied I use my Blush to create a Color Wash over everything to pull it together.  Then I varnished it all with my Wise Owl Varnish.  I bet you are asking about the Gold aspect on the Pink and Gold Painted Furniture. You can find the gold tone in the Bright Brass Ring Pulls from D. Lawless Hardware.  Notice I left some of the back plates off the pulls.  Always feel free to make each aspect all your own when creating your own pink and gold painted furniture!

    The custom transfers are adorable! The video shows that the transfers can be made for $1.oo, but on Amazon the temporary tattoo paper is around $10 for one sheet. May I ask where you found yours? I didn’t see a link for it. Thanks!

      Hey Mary! I aologize if it seems misleading. I was speaking of the price per transfer. Most transfers the size of what I used would be around $15-30 each, whereas my tattoo paper came with 20 sheets and each image was maybe half of one sheet, so at $20-25 per pack of 10 sheets, the cost per transfer would be around $1. I tried a few different kinds but here are the links to the ones I recommend:
      Laser Jet Printer- https://amzn.to/2LCCjOa
      Ink Jet Printer- https://amzn.to/2OhYjMN
      Those are affiliate links which means I will earn a commission if you shop through them.
