These paint samples are a great way to test out a new color. They also are fantastic if you have a small furniture project. I decided to test out a new color by using it to paint a vintage plant stand that I got a few years back. The condition of the wood was not the best, but after having one of our dogs chew at it and using it in the bathroom, it was looking rustic at best. I was ready to pitch it.
Using the free paint, I was able to dress it up a little for spring.
I used the color Herb Cornucopia (sample is shown in the “After” photo). Although it turned out more minty than I had hoped for, I think it is an improvement over the “Before” picture.
What do you think? Do you ever renew your furniture in a frugal way? Tell me about it.
