Whenever I bring home a piece of furniture to paint, I usually have to let it sit for a few days before I decide on the color. There are those few times when I run across a piece and know immediately the color it will be. But, for the most part, I need a little time. Neutral paint colors are always a good choice because they go with any style and they do sell fast. I also know that neutral can describe any color. You can have a neutral green and a neutral blue. You don’t have to paint everything white to get a “neutral” look. Today, I am going to share some of my favorite blue furniture makeovers that I have done over the years. I think most of these makeovers are a more neutral blue tone. They aren’t super loud or overpowering.

This tall dresser was so beautiful. I couldn’t wait to try this new-to-me blue color on it. It was just what this piece needed. It sold in a few hours.
I have had many people ask for chippy, rustic pieces. The blue color on the piece below is faint and so beautiful. It is definitely one of my favorite blue shades.
I love a smaller dresser that only has a few drawers. The natural wood knobs on the piece below pop nicely against this blue color.
Buffets are my favorite to make over! I just love how versatile they are. The blue color made this buffet handsome and rich.
If you are looking to add a pop of blue into a space, paint a side table in a shade of blue. It won’t take up a lot of space in the room. The blue won’t be a huge standout on a side table and it is a great piece to add the color to your space slowly to see if you like it.
Adding the blue color to the broken piece below made this piece sell SO FAST! It is the cutest piece that can be used in so many spaces.
Using a dark glaze over this blue color below took this dresser over the top. It is one of my most popular makeovers to date.
Sometimes, you just want a hint of blue. You want the essence of blue. The color below is just that.
The piece below is another popular makeover. Don’t pass up pieces that may be missing a drawer or door. You can reinvent them into other things to make them functional again.
The mix of blue and wood tones is SO GOOD! The buffet below is one of my favorite pieces. It was too large for us to keep. It sold so fast and went to a space that could accommodate it well.
The blue color on the piece below is perfect for a nursery. It can work great for a boy or a girl.
A blue-gray color is stunning. If I had to choose one blue color, it would probably be a blue-gray variation.
Another example of a blue-gray color on a bigger piece.
We used this piece in Gabrielle’s room for a long time. She picked out the color and helped with the makeover.
This desk was where all of this started. I used to work on it during naptime, nights, and weekends in the living room. This is another favorite makeover of mine. I have been looking for another desk like it for a long time. I just want to do this makeover again.
A broken dresser becomes a shelf piece in blue. Another piece that sold fast.
