Paint and Pinterest: Furniture Restoration Ideas
Do you have furniture that you inherited that you just love, but doesn’t match anything and looks outdated? Or does your husband have his favourite chair that he just won’t give up on? Figuring out how to restore outdated furniture can be confusing. It can be hard to envision what furniture can become. There’s a website, Pinterest, that can help.
What is Pinterest?
Pinterest is a social network site that encourages social interactions. Users can organise and save images. Or, they can even share their own images. You can search for just about anything on Pinterest and find others who are interested in the same topic.
Who Should Use Pinterest?
Pinterest relies heavily on images, so anyone who is visual will appreciate the format. Pinterest is great for design ideas, cooking recipes, home improvement tips, and so much more.
Warning: it can be addictive.
Pinterest for Furniture Restoration
Whatever furniture restoration that you need, Pinterest can help make your project a success. On Pinterest, you can search for different designs and finishes that will work with your furniture. You can type in key tags, such as “furniture” + “chair” + “before and after” and find a series of pictures of different types of furniture. The inspiration is endless. Best of all, it’s free and you can save (or “Pin”) the ideas you like.
Showing those images to your professional painter or polisher will help them to understand what you want. By utilising Pinterest, you can revitalise your outdated furniture in a style that fits your likes and needs. Pinterest can help bring your idea together in a professional, yet affordable way without the cost of a designer.
To get started with Pinterest, you can easily log in with your Facebook account or set up an account and voila! You’ll have instant access to over 30 billion pins. For more on Pinterest, visit Mashable.
