I know from reading your blogs that quite a few of you have been painting furniture lately. Painting furniture is not as easy as it seems! Here's a round-up of images, and at the end there's a source for furniture already painted (and at very good prices).

There is a chain of stores called Nadeau that sells solid wood furniture imported from India and Indonesia. They have designers that guide the artisans to styles that are popular in the USA, and lately they have been getting shipments of vintage style painted furniture, in the cutest on trend colors. The price point is great, starting under a $100.
When you consider the cost of a piece of furniture (even from Craigslist), and paint, and all the effort it takes to paint it, the pieces at Nadeau look very attractive. But buy it when you love it, because it's months before new shipments arrive.
