Mid Century Modern Furniture Part 2 Color!

Here are some ways to add color to a mid century piece. A geometric pattern pairs well with the sleek lines of a modern piece. 

Below is something a bit more sutble...but still a conversation piece. 

Bold but EASY! Just remove the drawers and the knobs and paint. 

This tall dresser has been painted and papered for a softer feel. 

Painters tape will help you create this look. 

The 70's gave us furniture with ornate carved like design. Seriously, it could look very ugly, until you play it up with a little paint, like the dresser below. 

Sometimes keeping it simple with one color is just enough.

Mid Century Makeovers Part 1

We haven't always been fans of the Mid Century Modern look but lately we have fallen in

love with some of the creative ways people have been "redoing" them. This basic white and brown look has caught our attention. Simple enough for just about anyone to try. Below the actual design within the piece itself created an easy pattern to follow. 

This look could be accomplished with a vinyl cutout also. 

Similar to the one above. 

This is actually an ikea dresser....same look as mid century but with an ikea price. 

A little busier pattern with the same type of results. 

We'll do another post on this style soon where the focus is on color... lots of color! This style of furniture can pull it off both ways. 

The Great Junk Hunt will have numerous vintage markets this year all over the country. See our show dates to see when we will be in your neck of the woods! 

Make your plans to attend today!
