7 pros to having your wardrobe repainted

by | Feb 22, 2023

Small design choices can have a major impact on the overall look and feel of a room. From the wallpaper to your bedding pattern, little details can make all the difference. However, sometimes furniture can be overlooked.

Do you have an outdated wardrobe which you don’t want to replace entirely but could really do with a revamp? Why not consider repainting your current wardrobe, rather than splashing out on a new one? You can update the colour, add a personalised touch, and customise elements such as handles to transform your space.

Read on to discover the pros to bespoke painted furniture — and particularly of painted, preloved furniture.


1. A fresh look

Are you redecorating your room? If you’re worried your current wardrobe won’t match the new aesthetic, spruce it up with a lick of paint. What may seem like a small change can make a big difference.


2. New lease of life

Sometimes our furniture can look a little worse for wear after a few years — or even decades — of use. Repainting your wardrobe can help bring your beloved piece of furniture back into the 21st century and cover up some of the damage from years of bumps and scratches.


3. Protect your wardrobe

If your wardrobe has been serving you for many years, it may be starting to show. By upcycling, painting and caring for your wardrobe, you will be able to prolong its life and continue using your wardrobe for years to come. Perhaps you have a vintage Stag Minstrel wardrobe that’s been passed down in your family and has sentimental value. Why not give it an extra layer of paint or varnish to preserve it for the next generation, too? 


4. It’s more eco-friendly

Repainting your pre-loved furniture is more eco-friendly than discarding it and buying a whole new wardrobe. Upcycled furniture doesn’t use up the natural resources that brand-new pieces do. Plus, you can make environmentally conscious choices when it comes to the type of paint and decoration you use, too.

For example, at Wood n Brush Co, we love using Fusion™ Mineral Paint. Not only does it provide beautiful results, but it’s also non-toxic, lead-free, and contains no volatile organic compounds (VOCs). 


5. Make your wardrobe a focal point

Repainting your wardrobe can bring more attention to it. This is especially great if you have a very elaborate wardrobe and want to bring more focus to it. Make a statement! Wouldn’t it be wonderful to feel joy every time you walk into your bedroom and see your upcycled wardrobe standing there?


6. Unleash your inner artist

Repainting your wardrobe can also be an engaging project. Whether you want a modern, sleek look or fancy adding a vibrant pattern, repainting allows you to set your inner artist free. If you have an idea in mind but aren’t so confident in your own painting skills, consider contacting a professional.

At Wood n Brush Co, we love creating bespoke painted furniture pieces that reflect each individual’s style and flair. From intricate Moroccan and lace flower stencils to sumptuous lashings of gold leaf, we can apply an array of designs to get the ideal aesthetic for your room.


7. More economically friendly

Often, repainting your wardrobe can be more economically friendly than buying a new wardrobe — particularly if your current wardrobe is of good quality. Why fork out for an entirely new piece of furniture when you can get fantastic results with a coat or two of paint?
