Best Home Decor Trend of 2011

Remember for a while people were all into finding old furniture and rehabing them into something lovely - often involving painstakingly taking them back to their original intended stain and doing them in high gloss?  And then for a while people were finding old furniture and making it look even older (AKA shabby chic) by allowing the paint to peel, or even making it look like it was peeling and then adding some strategic sanding?  Well both those trends are pretty much over.  The new trend is painted furniture -  and mostly BOLDLY painted furniture.

It's probably my favorite trend from this year

I want to paint my piano so bad, but I almost feel like it's too plain to be able to wear a bright color like that. I want a teal piano....or red.

Oh my gosh Lindsey DO IT! My piano was so boring boring boring before I had Cindy paint it for me. I highly recommend it!

Love the pictures! I'm not sure I would be brave enough to paint my existing furniture, but maybe something I bought second hand!
