Tips for Painting Furniture Navy Blue

To ensure that your furniture looks its best, it is important to prepare furniture for paint. Then use the right primer before starting your project. Check out this list of the best primers for painting furniture.

Primers are designed specifically to help give your paint better coverage and added durability and adhesion. Some also stop tannin bleed through, which is really important when painting wood furniture.

Also, be sure to use a high-quality paint brush or paint roller (you can even use a paint sprayer) to apply several thin coats of paint—at least two coats are suggested.

Finally, if you use paint that needs a topcoat, be sure to seal the paint afterward so that it can withstand wear and tear properly. Here’s our list of the best topcoats for painting furniture.

What other colors pair well with navy blue furniture?

Navy blue is a beautiful color that can pair well with a variety of other colors. If you want to add some contrast to your navy blue furniture, consider pairing it with crisp white accents. This will create a clean and classic look.

You can also pair your navy pieces with other shades of blue, such as light blue or royal blue. This will create a cohesive and calming feel in your space. Additionally, shades of green, like sage or olive green, can also complement navy blue furniture and bring a touch of nature into your room.

For a bolder look, try pairing navy with bright colors like yellow or coral. This will add a playful and energetic vibe to your space. You can also go for metallic accents, such as gold or silver, to give your navy furniture a luxurious touch.

    Hi! I have two end tables that I would like to paint navy blue…one is black and the other is dark brown/cherry wood. I am unsure if the navy will cover well without a primer. Do I need a primer? If yes, should I try the gray primer or can I use white, or use the clear shellac? I’m just confused how to begin. Thank you and I enjoy your blog/FB so much!!

    1. priming is always going to give you better results. I would use clear shellac or a tinted BIN primer so you aren’t going dark to white, then white to navy.
