There’s nothing like paint to transform objects, furniture or cabinetry that are dated and have seen better days.  I was so happy when I discovered Burlington-based Paint it Like New and would like to welcome them as my newest blog sponsor.

I recently visited to see their operation (it’s a well-oiled machine I tell you!) and hear about their process.  Paint it Like New has been around since 2009 and has grown by leaps and bounds ever since.  I was surprised to learn that they paint around 20 kitchens a month!  With the average price for spraying a kitchen (with 30 doors) being in the $1000 ballpark, I can see why people are lining up.

I love that they only use low VOC paint with a choice of sheen.

You don’t have to choose white when painting a piece – just look at these pretty pieces.  I especially loved the green-gray on the Swedish-inspired bench.  The bedroom suite is done in a custom colour which is a true, dark brown.


If you have a piece that you are interested in getting painted, contact Janet or Janelle for a quote.  They are happy to help!  Check out their gallery for more inspiration.

Next week I will share a couple of pieces that I had sprayed – stay tuned!
