How to Paint Furniture to Look Coastal

If you’re thinking of painting furniture to look coastal but aren’t sure what color to use, fear not. There are many ways to achieve the look without going overboard. First, avoid being afraid of weathered finish and color. Then, consider adding a few layers of salt wash and a carpet that blends in well with your furniture. Don’t forget about the accent pieces! Adding some seashells or seashell-shaped accent pieces will give your home a beachy vibe.

Adding a carpet that blends well with your furniture

If you have a beach house in your backyard, you’ve probably thought about incorporating a coastal-themed carpet into the home. After all, the hallway is the main access point of the home and it is bound to see a lot of traffic. Luckily, you can protect the floor with a coastal rug, while adding freshness with leafy green plants. The beach house theme is all about light and airy, so it only makes sense to make sure that the carpet blends in with this.

Adding a few layers of salt wash

To give the furniture a beachy feel, consider adding a few layers of salt wash. This natural paint is made of real sea salt and dries quickly. It can be applied to virtually any surface, including metal. Because it dries so quickly, it is an excellent choice for a variety of purposes. It is safe to use and requires no lead or VOCs.

Adding a little glaze

Adding a glaze to your furniture can give it a coastal feel. It can help to accentuate the details of your furniture, and stays in the crevices of the furniture, making the color richer. Adding a glaze is not for the faint of heart – it can soak into the paint and become impossible to remove. Use a polyurethane clear coat if you want to work with the glaze.
