Painted furniture revisited
- So, we've spoken here before about painted furniture, but I was presented with a
question that I was unsure of. Here is the question as it was put to me:
"I'm planning on making a cabinet to hide the cooking stuff. I've seen
pictures of chests where there is painting, but not other kinds of
furniture. I've seen cabinets where there is carving, but right now carving
is more than I know how to do. So I had thought of using painted
decorations. Do you know if painted decoration was used in furniture other
than chests? Several sites mention that there are traces of paint on
furniture, but that could mean that it was painted one color, not the
colorful design I'm imagining."
What do you all think? My gut feeling is that yes, there would have been such
decoration. But I've not looked into it. Does anyone have any sources that
mention/show this sort of thing?
"It's never too late to be what you might have been."
