Transform your tired looking furniture with a splash of paint
If your furniture is looking tired and you don’t have the bank balance to replace it all with nice new or antique pieces, don’t despair. You can strip, sand and paint old furniture to create the look you desire, from modern chic to art deco and distressed antique.
In comparison to some of the more accessible and modern furniture available today, older furniture is quite often made with quality construction and simply in need of a little TLC. Whether it’s a dated piece you’re tired of or a vintage gem you’ve discovered when rummaging around in car boot sales and charity shops, a restoration makeover is sure to save you cash. And let’s not forget, you will be left with something unique that feels personal to you and your home.
Create the look with the right furniture paints for the job
Before you go hunting for the perfect paint, it’s important to consider what finish you want to achieve. Distressed or block colour? Glossy or matte? Once you have these starting blocks it’s easier to pinpoint the right paint for the project.
The shabby chic look is the most popular DIY look at the moment. For that style, Rust-Oleum Chalky Finish Furniture Paints will give you the smooth, matt finish you’ll need. You can easily create a distressed look by going over the piece with sand paper once fully dry.
