20 INSPIRING RED PAINTED FURNITURE MAKEOVERS TO INSPIRE YOU!
Hello, sweet #sifamily. Thanks for joining me today! Last week I attended my second bloggers’ conference in Austin TX. Just like last year, it was amazing and I learned so much. Some of the ‘techie stuff ‘sunk into this noggin… some of it didn’t 😉 — but the BEST part hands down was meeting a few of my Furniture Fixer Upper friends — Kathy from Petticoat JUNKtion and Christy from Confessions of a Serial DIY’er!
We had SOOOO much fun exploring Austin!
If you’ve never been, this city is eclectic and interesting. Live entertainment, art, BBQ, and Tex-Mex cuisine with the most delicious tacos and burritos. And don’t forget the donuts! For those of you that have been following me for some time, you know I LOVE my donuts. Voodoo Donuts doesn’t disappoint! I think I shocked Kathy, Christy, and Wanda From House To Home how fast I gobbled mine down because they apparently thought it was a photo-op moment! 🍩
Anyway, I haven’t quite finished the dresser I’m working on, but I have something super FUN for you today. If you love bold color, today’s post is full of hot ideas. RED HOT ideas!
Today I’m sharing 20 inspiring red painted furniture makeovers — Salvaged Style!
You’re going to love how these talented furniture artists transformed these pieces and how gorgeous they all are! Feel free to visit the links provided. Reading through these artists’ blog posts will give you a ton of ideas, I’m sure. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
1:: Red Clawfoot Table
2:: Red Whimsical Dresser
Love Tracey and her work! I had the pleasure of meeting her in person a few weeks ago in Cali at the ReDesign & Dixie Belle Workshop and she’s even sweeter in life. Her furniture is always artistic, whimsical and full of life.
3:: Red Highboy Dresser
4:: Fusia Sunset Floral Dresser
You know I have to throw in a few of mine. 😉 Working on this vintage tallboy was a treat. It turned out a little more rustic glam than my original vision, but I absolutely love it.

6:: Tricycle Dresser Reveal
Red Milk Paint anyone? This gorgeous piece was painted in Tricycle by Marion of Miss Mustard Seed. The color and distressing couldn’t be more perfect on this dresser and check out the hardware!
7:: Tricycle Vintage Cabinet
Here’s another milk painted beauty by my new BFF Kathy at Petticoat JUNKtion. She did such an amazing job with the painting technique and the styling! She’s also sharing a detailed milk paint tutorial for this piece.

And because I just couldn’t decide on which one of Kathy’s to share with you all, here’s another adorable holiday-themed piece.
9:: Red French Provincial Dresser
10:: Red Dresser
Isn’t this a handsome dresser? I’m in love with all this dark shading. Here’s a red classic dresser by Mark at Refurbished Gentleman.
11:: Red Painted Drop Down Desk
And here’s a pristine muted red with no shading created by Gem of Forgotten Gems.
12:: Red Buffet
Whenever I see this buffet on Pinterest, it stops me in my tracks so I had to share it in this roundup! Working on these buffets is always a treat and Katie from Katie & Co. Furniture Restorations knocked it out of the ballpark on this one.

13:: Raised Stencil China Cabinet
Here’s a china cabinet I painted red with brown undertones. It’s amazing all the different shades and looks you can get with red paint.

My talented friend Marie at The Interior Frugalista painted this beauty. I love the white knobs!

17:: Red Gloss Vanity
18:: Red Empire
19:: Salem Red Empire Dresser
When I first saw this empire I couldn’t decide if it was orange or red. It’s been pained in Salem Red from Old Fashion Milk Paint. It’s another great example of the variances we can achieve with undertones!
20:: Red Fire Truck
And last but not least, I’m leaving you with a super original and super sweet red fire engine makeover. Wouldn’t this be adorable for a little one! Jen from Girl In The Garage was really thinking out of the box with this before and after!
I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THIS RED PAINTED FURNITURE ROUNDUP AND IT’S SPARKED A FEW IDEAS! FEEL FREE TO CHIME IN OR SHARE LINKS TO YOUR FAVORITE MAKEOVERS… OR YOUR FAVORITE DONUTS! I ALWAYS LOVE HEARING FROM YOU.
I’ll be back on Thursday with my Furniture Fixer Upper crew sharing a curb-shopped Ikea Hack. Hope to see you then!
Thanks for reading. 🙂
Wishing you a beautiful day filled with inspiration and Happy Painting friends!

Denise, thanks for taking the time to put together the Red Roundup. One WOW after another. I struggled with painting a chair red (I didn’t like it after it was done, got frustrated, and haven’t redone it yet) but the Round up pieces were inspirational and give me hope to try again.
Oh good, I’m so glad Joanne! I’m working on a mirror right now and I’m having the same problem. Struggling. It’s not turning out ANYTHING as I imagined and I’m not liking it. It comes with trying new things and being a creative I guess. 😐
Thanks for sharing my red empire dresser! I’m not aware of a blogger’s conference in Austin, TX, would you mind sharing what it was? Sounds like fun and maybe I can come next year!
Hi Melaine!!! 🙂 It was the Adthive Summit Conference for Adthrive publishers. A lot of great back end info! And my pleasure… your red empire is (and all your work!) is stunning! XO
Christy James says
This round-up makes me want to paint something red!! Gorgeous! I forgot about that pic of you stuffing your face ha ha! I already told my hubby that I’ll be going back next year…such a fun time!! XOXO
So much fun and so amazing meeting in person! I’m all in for next year my friend!!! XOXO
Kathleen Hicks says
I am in love with them all-fabulous shades of red. I cannot decide which is best-they all must be best!
Hi Kathleen! I’m with you, they are all the best! 🙂
Susie | Chelsea Project says
Love the red hot reds. Every songle one of them.
Hi Susie! 🙂 Me too. They all did an amazing job!
I was excited to browse your red album. I saw a 70’s grandfather clock that had been painted red so looking at all the different reds and finishes served as inspiration as I have a similar clock. Thanks for such a great variety of red projects!
I think a red restyled grandfather clock would be quite a stunning focal piece! Have fun. 🙂
My red loving self is so in her happy place looking at these stunning makeovers in my favorite color! Some are familiar favorites and others I so appreciate you sharing with us so I can start following. I am honored to have been included among these talented furniture artists – thank you so much 🙏🏻 How fun to see the three of you from our Furniture Fixer Upper crew together! Great name for that donut shop, which would’ve been a dangerous stop for this donut loving gal
Danger donut stop for sure…lol. The day we meet in person we’re going for donuts my friend. 😉 But you know what? Tim Horton donuts are still my all-time favs no matter where I go. I guess because they bring back good memories. I remember when I was a kid it was such a treat to get Tim Horton donuts with my Mum, Dad and sister. Now we have a Timmy’s on what seems like every corner but back then we had one lone location here in Burlington.
Kathy Owen says
Thanks for all the furniture shares friend! I so enjoyed getting to meet you in person. Such fun and I hope we can do it again next year. I love your buffalo check piece!
Your pieces are gorgeous, thank YOU!! And yes, it’s a bloggers date for next year! I’m in!!! 🙂
Do Dodson says

Thanks and I’d LOVE to meet up Do!! XOXO
Your roundups are the best Denise! Thank you! – Nicki
Thank YOU, Nicki! So glad you enjoy them! XOXO
Karin Mann says
They make a real statement, don’t they!?
Denise – I just can’t decide which one I love more! Fabulous Red — I have one red piece in my home, but am definitely inspired to add more!
Hi Andi! So hard to pick because they’re ALLLL so beautiful, right!? 🙂
Lizzy Leff says
I personally would never paint anything red, but many of these are quite beautiful.
I hear you, Lizzy. I paint with red but don’t have any red furniture in my home. It doesn’t fit in with my decor but I really appreciate the bold statement it makes for sure!
Rita holzhauer says
Denise. You don’t have directions for these pieces?
Hi Rita! If you click on the links provided under the pics you like, they will bring you to the online tutorials. 🙂
Kira M Sayler says
These are all my dream pieces. I have bought things I didn’t even like, just cuz they were RED! Thank you for compiling and sharing!!
lol… my pleasure Kira! All these artists did an amazing job. So glad you stopped by!! XO
Hi Denise. Love the red roundup and love seeing your pictures from Austin. Sounds like a fun city and looks like you had a blast:). I am addicted to donuts but have never heard of Voodoo Donuts before. I’ll be adding it to my bucket list. Lol
Austin is fun! And ya, if you love donuts, Voodoo Doughnuts is extra fun…lol. 😉
