Adding paint to a plain piece of furniture is a creative way to change the look. You can easily take a simple piece of Ikea furniture and make it the focus of a room. The end mood you get will depend on the color you choose. A nice bright white can always upscale a furniture piece. The dresser that has been DIYed here in a great example of that. White paint was added to the bare wood dresser, with a darkstain. This changes the entire look of the piece. It looks more modern and finished. It is now worthy of your home and you did it yourself!

Judith Taylor is an award-winning designer with a flair for making personal, meaningful spaces. The granddaughter of a prominent furniture manufacturer, I am passionate about style and the tradition of quality fine furniture making. Family friendly, magazine-worthy spaces are achieved through my timeless aesthetic. I work closely with clients, to make sure that every space I design for them is a soulful balance of bold design, elegant style and things that are special to them. Aside from the Designer of the Year Award, I was also the first to win Crate and Barrel’s Designer Challenge and you can see the Judith chair on the about page on my website, or sit on the winning entry in my living room (by invitation only). I enjoy travel, good food, often wine, and always look forward to spending more time with family at the beach at our summer place at Cape Cod.
