Did you find a few great items at a flea market or win a piece of furniture at auction this summer, that needs some freshening up? We have just about everything you need for furniture renovations - furniture paint, tools and even fabric and wadding, if needed. We transformed this lovely little cupboard with new paint. Have you tried painting with Panduro Vintage Furniture paint? If not, we warmly recommend it! It is a wonderful creamy, chalky, matt paint that produces a beautiful chalky look. METHOD: Start by cleaning the furniture and sanding any unevenness. Stir the paint in the container and begin painting; use a good brush to paint the furniture. Apply several coats of paint if needed. It doesn't matter if the paint has a little texture in it, but if you like, you can also brush out the paint thoroughly. Then let the furniture dry for two days before using it. The large Folklore Tassel is made out of strips of fabric from our "Folklore Fusion" collection. Take a bundle of strips and tie a piece of string in the middle. Cover a wooden ball with strips, tie them underneath the wooden ball with a fabric strip. Thread painted balls onto string and hang up.
Give your old furniture a new colour or two. Because who wouldn't smile at the sight of these colourful stools? We used Panduro Furniture Paint, a semi-gloss furniture paint. Apply paint in the same direction as the wood grain; start with white primer for best results. P.S. Don't forget the prep work - wash and sand before painting.
It's always smart to have extra seating in the form of stools when playing with Legos, painting with watercolours or throwing a party. Give old and new stools alike a unique new look with a little paint and tape. We painted the stools with Panduro Furniture Paint. Prepare the stools by cleaning them with Panduro Furniture paint surface cleaner. See if they need to be sanded to help the new paint adhere better. Use sandpaper and a sanding sponge. To achieve the sharp lines, we used masking tape. Let your creativity flow and use the tape to make your own patterns to paint. The fun thing about painting and upcycling is that every stool can have its own look. See where your imagination takes you!
Revitalise old furniture! An old chair, a flea market find, Grandpa's chest or whatever you have at home now can all be like new again simply by applying a new layer of paint. A good foundation is absolutely essential for good results; wash with paint surface cleaner and sand down the old surface. Use primer if needed. Apply "Furniture Paint" for indoor carpentry to the areas you wish to have a semi-glossy surface and slightly stronger hues. "Vintage Furniture Paint" is for wood, MDF, plaster etc. where you want a matt surface and slightly softer hues. Be sure to let dry for the recommended time.
