Who do I get to paint my furniture?



Don’t want to paint yourself and would prefer someone else paint your furniture? This service is offered by many retailers and users. Although we would like to think anyone offering such a service would do a good job we can not be held responsible for the quality of services. So do your homework, go to their shop and check out the quality of their work and don’t be afraid to ask a lot of questions and understand the costs involved. Remember you are paying for their experience and talents that have taken years to develop. Make sure the piece is worth it. Sometimes a piece of furniture has tremendous sentimental value and is therefore worth doing right. The prices may vary. Some will charge by the hour and some will charge by the job. It will also vary depending on the furniture piece. For example chairs with lots of spindles are very hard to paint and are time consuming. Another factor to affect the price is the talent required for the application you are seeking. More difficult applications will obviously cost more. Indicated on the retailer list are those who offer custom furniture painting services.

Where do I buy painted and unpainted furniture?



Many stores also sell painted or unpainted pieces of furniture. These pieces are often found for sale or on their websites and Facebook. This service is also indicated on the retailer listing found in your area. There are some wonderful painted pieces of furniture to be had, so don’t wait, they will go quickly.
