The idea of painting furniture is not a new idea. The Bloomsbury group of the early part of the 20th century turned their all ready creative and productive minds and eyes to the endeavour. Painted furniture is about you looking differently at the flat or not so flat surfaces that you find in your immediate surroundings. The surfaces do not even have to be hard. As you can see from the images of the first spread, you can happily and successfully paint the padded seat of a chair.
This type of art is empowering, as this is your chance to create art which is approachable, accessible and charming. It is from the school of live and love art, and make it a part of your every day rountine.
