I am going to start this Easy Way To Paint Curvy Furniture post with the makeover and then if you hold on until the end, I have an amazing giveaway for you that will change all your painting projects for the better. You won’t want to miss it.
This project came from a “presale” of an estate sale in May. The lady having the sale was the same lady that had the barn full of stuff we picked in early spring. She was cleaning out both her parents’ estates and was trying to get rid of as much as she could. The estate sale was at her mom’s house. Even though it wasn’t as fun as the barn pick, we still found a few things to bring home.
I found this table in the back of the garage. It had stuff on top of it and didn’t have a price on it. I asked her if she was selling it and she said, “Yes! Everything needs to go!”
(*Tip: When you are at a yard sale or estate sale, make sure and look for pieces underneath things. Check out the tables that are holding other things. Often times, the tables are for sale too, but people don’t see them. Don’t always look at the obvious. Shopping sales this way is how I have found some of the best pieces!)
The top had a lot of damage, but I thought I could sand them out.

Before I tried Zibra Paint Brushes, I never looked forward to painting furniture pieces like this. The curves on the legs of tables like these aren’t easy to paint. I would usually end up swiping my paint brush back and forth and finding paint splatters weeks later around where I painted. It just wasn’t efficient.
Then, I was introduced to Zibra Paint Brushes and my dreaded painting projects are not dreaded anymore.
The round brush is made to paint curvy furniture pieces easier and it delivers.
I shared a video on my Instagram stories of the painting process of this table. The brush went right inside the curves and the paint is covered all the crevices.
Not only am I excited to share this paint brush with you, but I am also excited to introduce you another beautiful paint color from Fusion Mineral Paint.
This, my friends, is “BayBerry”.
I love green, but sometimes it is hard to find the right green. “Bayberry” and “Park Bench” from Fusion Mineral Paint are amazing green colors. I painted my office desk in “Park Bench” and I used “BayBerry” on a smaller piece and loved it.
Like I said earlier, I was going to try and save the table top by sanding, but after lots of sanding, the marks were still on it.
I painted the top and was so glad the sanding didn’t work because I liked it painted all over.
I set the table next to our sofa in the living room.
It has been there ever since.
I can’t decide between the natural wood table I had there or this one.
I get a lot of questions about the pieces I make over.
Everyone wants to know if I keep them all.
The short answer is no.
We do not have a lot of space to keep things which is a blessing for me because my OCD issues with having everything in order is easy to control. That also means that I am constantly rotating pieces in and out of our home.
I pick up pieces that I love. It doesn’t matter if I have space for them or not. If I see potential in a piece, it comes home with me.
Once I makeover a piece, I bring it in the house. I stage it if I am sharing it on the blog and sometimes I like them better than what we currently have.
When that happens, I sell the piece we already had. We have a HUGE yard sale in the spring and summer to keep pieces cycling through.
These sales have become like little flea markets. I have an email list of people who want to come to the early preview sale and we have met some of the most amazing people who totally get us and the home decor we love. They get to shop great treasures that no longer fit in our home and I get to purge and keep our home in “non-hoarding” status. It is a win-win all around!
So, that is the longer answer. That is how I work all of these projects. It is so much fun for me and I am so thankful that Matt loves it as much as I do.
For this The Easy Way To Paint Curvy Furniture project, it kicked the previous table out of this spot, but the jury is still out. I put the other side table next to our bed for the time being.
