The Painted Furniture Company Adds A Bit Of Color to Boulder, Co.

We love everything about vintage, from clothing to architecture and often spend our weekends roaming the highways for hidden treasures.  Alas, it was the Internet highway that lead us to our latest find – The Painted Furniture Company in Boulder, Colorado. 
This little gem of a shop boasts three levels filled with wonderful vintage solid wood furniture a few blocks from the Design District in downtown Boulder.  Upon walking in you might think this is not your granny’s furniture, it is, actually, yet much better.  Once unwanted and forgotten solid wood heirlooms have been transformed into playful, fun, hip furnishings perfect for today and the future.  Furniture once viewed as “old” and “boring” has had a metamorphosis as dramatic as a caterpillar emerging from a cocoon a stunning butterfly.  The artfully reimagined furniture boasts sometimes bright, sometimes metallic finishes which catch your eye as well as your imagination.  Another plus about The Painted Furniture Company is that if you get tired of the color of the piece you buy, you can have it reinvented yet again with a new coat of paint.  The owners look for only the highest quality and construction in the pieces they stock.  They give free reign to their talented artists who perform the incredible transformations as is evidenced below.  
The Scarlet dresser (bottom left) is a French Provincial beauty priced to fly at only $285.  The wonderful plum and cream color combination is truly lovely. You have to love the color of Armeria sofa table (bottom right), another steal at $210.

One of our favorites has to be the Black Lace coffee table (bottom left), so chic and classy.  The Bell china cabinet (bottom right) is lovely with its leaded glass doors and contrasting sky blue paint inside.  A bargain at $885.

The Groot dresser (bottom left) with its wonderful hand painted tree scene was so wonderful it sold already.  The Jumanji coffee table looks like a weathered piece of wood from deep in a jungle and will add a bit of the wild to your décor.

The Samantha armoire (bottom left) has beautiful carved detailing on the door and is shabby cottage at its best while the Cottage Crystal hutch is the perfect storage piece.

The Twilight armoire (bottom left), with its soft subtle grey color, will blend in with most color palettes.  Another lace effect finish can be seen on the Silver Lace dresser.

The most unique piece, which has sold is the Plum Flare (bottom left) chest of drawers.  It looks like a wonderful Victorian “Painted Lady” with its fabulous colors and lacy accents.  Lovely molded drawers abound on the Bailey dresser in a washed blue.

Two toned subtle sweetness shows through this lovely claw foot sofa table (bottom left) which can double as a desk .  We love it in the pale aqua. The shabby princess won’t be able to overlook the Ashley cabinet with its feminine touches and pale lilac color.

The Disco night stand (bottom left) will take you back to the 80s with high style and it’s homage to the Art Deco era.   We think the mid century bi-level Glass Leaves table is so adorable and sure to catch your eye.

We felt the Telluride dresser (bottom left) had loads of style and a snappy color.  The Shiprock side table or night stand is wonderful with the corkscrew turned decoration in distressed pale blue.
