Mad for Mod

Mad for Mod

Don’t be scurred to paint mid-century modern furniture. Sure, the style lends itself to sleekness and simplicity, but if it’s warped and rocking water stains, and you just feel like painting it apple green, well … I won’t tell.

I think this makeover by Hannah is spot on. Bright and happy, but still in keeping with the streamlined feel of the original look. If she had covered it in modge-podge and scrapbook paper and screwed in big crystal knobs, I might have choked on my cereal a little bit. But this is perfecto! Check it out on her blog A Handmade Childhood.
