When you have multiple children, furniture that you use year after year can get really beat up. In order to give new life to a piece, you can update kids' furniture with paint and a new style.
We bought this little wooden table for my older kids a few years ago, and even though they outgrew it, my youngest still uses it all the time. It is pretty banged up and could definitely use a refresh.
I needed something that would cover all the scratches, marks, and stains that this little piece had endured over the years. Target now carries a line of Devine Color by Valspar paints in a gorgeous array of colors in both regular wall paint as well as spray paint.
They also carry metallics and coordinating wallpapers. Pretty much everything you need for a makeover project.
You can find it in the home improvement area (it was near the tools in my store.)
I wanted to try the Devine Horizon color on this table and chairs. It is a super light blue, perfect for my son. I also wanted to make the table set a little more sophisticated so I thought paint dipping the legs in a metallic color would look great. I used the Devine Metals paint in Devine Penny.
And once I had the table and chairs all painted up, I was able to perfectly accessorize the rest of the room with home decor items from the children’s section of Target as well.
This cute embroidered bear pillow is a perfect match to the table, and the gold accessories (all from Target as well) just bring out the metallic legs.
They even have matching accessories for organizing. I loved this little storage box!
How to Paint with Devine Color by ValsparFirst I needed to remove all the oil and crayon form the table and rough up the finish, so I sanded the entire surface of the table and chairs.
Next I used a brush and roller for my first coat. Since Devine Color by Valspar has primer already included I didn’t need a separate primer. After the first layer was dry I used a paint sprayer to add a few more thin coats and give the set a nice even finish. The Devine Color by Valspar performed perfectly in the spray gun.
Once the paint was dry I moved on to paint dipping the legs. I use delicate surface painters tape (since the paint was fresh you want to be careful with tape.)Next I added a few coats of the shimmering Devine Metallic paint in Devine Penny. I loved the contrast between the copper and baby blue.
This set is now perfect for the kids' room, a great place to play games, put together puzzles or do arts and crafts.
It is so easy to grab Devine Color during your next trip to Target and come home with the perfect solution to update your old kids' furniture. Plus it is affordable and the colors coordinate with many of Target's children's decor items.
