Stained and Painted Furniture

Pairing painted furniture with stain is such a beautiful combo! It’s a look that will always catch my eye, and seeing the wood grain come through a stained piece adds an extra element of charm! It really turns it into a lovely statement piece in your home!

Dresser with combo paint and stain makes a statement.

Since paint and stain pair so well together, I wanted to add my new tutorial called “Sand, Stain, Seal” to my painted furniture course. So when you purchase the painted furniture course, you will also learn all you need to know about staining a real wood surface, so you can create your own beautiful paint and stain combinations!

Sometimes the idea of sanding a piece all the way down can seem intimidating, but I’ll show you how to do it to make sure you have stunning results. I’ve gone through a lot of trial and error, trying to figure out the easiest and quickest process, but a process that will also leave a beautiful, professional finish! I’m excited to share those steps with you!

*Note: This course teaches you how to sand down and stain a real wood surface. Before starting your project, make sure that your piece is real wood and not a composite wood or any other material that is not real wood. I will teach you a few ways to check for this in the tutorial, but you can also do a test piece on a small corner to see if you sand down to wood or not.

Do you have furniture in your home that could use a refresh?

Look around your home…Do you have any furniture that you have had for years, but may not love anymore? Could a little paint and/or stain give it a whole new look that you will love? It is amazing how a different color can really change the look!

Paint and stain make a stunning combo. Learn all the steps to paint and stain your furniture like a pro, and have your own beautiful furniture makeovers!

    1. Hey there! I actually sanded this piece down to its natural grain and then used a furniture salve on it! No stain at all!
