Wondering what pieces of yours might benefit from high-gloss paint? Check out the following photos to see where fellow Houzz members have introduced a little shine.
Coffee table.Punch up your living room with a high-gloss painted coffee table. Really make it stand out by choosing a contrasting color for your wall. Your guests may actually feel guilty sticking their feet on something this lovely.
Lamp.Lamps are not just for light; they’re also an opportunity to play up your overall scheme. Have an old lamp that you feel is lacking in style? Give it a quick coat of high-gloss paint for a piece that will stand on its own.
Side table.If you’ve got a fairly monochromatic color scheme going in your seating area, add a some texture by transforming the side table with high-gloss paint. The mix of this sophisticated piece with bamboo furniture is very modern-retro.
Dining table.If you want to get the kids to the dinner table, make it enticing! A dining table painted in high-gloss may not get them to eat their vegetables, but at least it will be a treat for the eyes.
Mantle.Up the ante of your fireplace with a sophisticated, shiny mantle. This is particularly chic in this rustic living room, and the interaction between the contrasting red of the sofa and green of the mantle ignites the individual colors.
Knickknacks.Have a few cool pieces you’ve picked up at flea markets that you’ve been meaning to touch up? Give them the ultimate makeover with high-gloss paint. Choose an unexpected shade, and you’ll have instant conversation pieces.
