Are you a fan of patina painted furniture? I’ve dabbled in using metallic paints and patina (like this skirt in last weeks makeover), but the truth is I haven’t worked up the courage to paint a full piece yet.
I was online looking for some paintina-inspiration, and today I’m sharing a few of my favorites. These makeovers are sure to inspire us to give this time-worn technique a try too!
Thank you to ALL the talented creative artist below. I’ve included a link below their images so you can go check out their techniques and patina painted furniture how-to’s.
Let’s get this roundup started!
Do at Do Dodson Designs created this gorgeous patina dresser/chest makeover. I’m in love with the rust patina over the rich shades of blue.
Here’s a stunning makeover from Quitta over at All Shabbed Out. This piece is so unique and I’m in love with all this rustic elegance!
RUSTIC ELEGANCE – PAINTED BUFFET
I saw this high boy dresser over on Pinterest but I couldn’t find the source. I love the wood and patina distressed combo. If anyone knows the source of this beauty, please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due!
Can you believe this rusted patina swing is actually wood? Here’s an artistic makeover from SK at SK On Elderberry. I simply love all the patina matched with the free-flowing artistic detail on this porch swing.
Here are 2 stunning makeovers by the talented Dionne at The Turquoise Iris. (sorry, Dionne… I couldn’t pick just 1 of your beauties!) I love the patina on BOTH these pieces… and that coral cutie… OMGgosh!
Here’s a stunning vanity from Sophia at Sophia’s Rustic Furniture. The turquoise painted patina on this chunky wood is absolutely stunning!
Here’s another copper patina beauty by Do at Do Dodson Designs. I think Do’s perfected these rustic finishes!
COPPER PATINA NIGHTSTAND MAKEOVER
And check out this knock-out by Vintage Tide Decor! This secretary desk has been totally transformed with drippy rusty patina over a vibrant mint green!
Thank you for dropping by today. I hope you enjoyed this Furniture Paintina Roundup and it’s inspired you as much as it inspires me. Now I’m going to go work up the courage and try this technique…. 🙂

Hi Denise! The Rustic Elegance Buffet is the amazing work of Q Uitta Allen of All Shabbed Out.
Love all the patina!
Wow Denise, what a stunning round up of gorgeous patina painted furniture! I just love the rustic, time worn look of patina pieces and like you, would love to give it a try. They read like art! Unfortunately, in my demographic, they wouldn’t sell and so I’m waiting for the perfect piece to do for my own home. Thanks for the curated collection 🙂
Hi Marie!!! 🙂 I’m really not sure if they would sell here either… but I still have an urge to give it a try. If it doesn’t sell, it will become a makeover x2. Or like you said, maybe keep it for my home. 😉
Do Dodson says
Hey Denise! Thanks so much for the feature in your beautiful round up! I’m so honored and humbled to be chosen to represent along side of these other amazing furniture artist as well as yourself. Total respect for you and your work. A word of warning…. once you use the patina paint, you will be addicted! You should totally just go for it! ;:)
Hey Do!!! Thanks so much for ALL your beautiful work and sharing in this roundup. So funny, as I was reading your comment I thought you were going to give a tip on how to use patina products… thanks for encouraging words and the warning! lol 😉 🙂
All, very artful. Not my preference though..
Hi DiB!!! 🙂 All super artful, right!? That said, I realize it’s not for everyone. All these pieces have strong personalities and would need a well suited decor. Just as Marie (previous comment) was saying, this patina look would probably sell better in some areas than others.
Thank you, this is a beautiful and roundup, Denise! I can’t wait to see your take on a patina finish. 🙂
Thanks so much Nicki! I’ll be sure to share regardless of how it turns out. 😉
So funny, great minds must think alike! I spent my weekend looking at patina finishes,trying to gear up to do one of my own.
I will be interested to hear how you do yours. I have some of the Modern Masters copper paint with both blue and green activator. I may give it a go on a mirror for my dining room. I love the look of the rust as well, but from what I’ve read you lose much of the effect when you seal the rust finish. So it may not work as well on furniture.
Right now I am working on putting a patina on some copper pipe to use as a drapery rod. It would probably be easier and cheaper to use paint on a wooden dowel, but I like doing things the hard and expensive way,lol!
There is so much you can achieve with just paint of course. Have you seen the work of Diane at The Paint Factory? She combines her patina finishes with incredible art photo transfers. Here’s a link to her blog: http://thepaintfactorypdx.com/blog/ She has more incredible pictures on her facebook page.
What a fun way to start a Monday! Can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Hi Rebecca… yes, great minds! 🙂 I’m thinking the same thing. Should I dive right or try a patina on knick-knacks, frames or something smaller to test the waters first? I promised myself I’d do something this week though. And ya, I’m very familiar with Diane’s work… and I love her sense of humor too! Have fun with your drapery rod. I’d love to hear how it turns out for you. 🙂
Linda at q is for quandie says
I haven’t been brave enough to tackle a full on patina’d piece of furniture yet either, but the examples you’ve shared sure are inspiring me to give it a go! Thanks Denise!
They’ve inspired me too! There are so many products that make the process easy but I guess I’m just scared I’ll make a runny mess… but I won’t know ’till I try. I think we should bite the bullet and try this together Linda. 😉 Have a super day.
Susie @ Chelsea Project says
An amazing roundup of talent and techniques. Love these pieces so much……..can’t wait to try out a couple. Thanks for sharing!! ~~ Susie
Hi Susie!! 😀 I can’t wait to try too. I’m putting aside some time today to go through my inventory to find a piece that’s screaming for a patina finish. xoxo
Hi Denise. I love your beautiful patina round-up. Wonderful eye candy for a Monday. Thank you for always making my Monday mornings better:)
Aww thanks, Monique. You brighten my Monday’s too my friend. XOXO And I agree, amazing furniture eye candy. 🙂
