Thank you to all who entered our Make It Yours competition in May. It was a tough month for judging with a multitude of inspirational upcycles and transformation projects to choose from. However, with much deliberation we have chosen 10 runners up and our lucky top prizewinner.
The top prize this month of £250 went to Jasper Komen bought a 70’s drinks cabinet for only £20 and with the help of Rust-Oleum, gave it a geometric makeover. Using Rust-Oleum Satin Finish Furniture Paint in Cotton and Rust-Oleum Gloss Finish Furniture Paint in Dove and Lemon Sorbet, Jasper added a modern design and a bright pop of colour to this chic sideboard. We love it!
Hollie created a cool design on a plain white plant pot using masking tape and Rust-Oleum White Gold Metallic spray paint. Very chic!
Margaret Smith used Rust-Oleum Chalky Finish Furniture Paint in Laurel Green to brighten up an old, dark wood bookcase. Margaret then added birdhouse decals to freshen it up and finish the look.
Matthew Fennell gave his walnut nesting tables a new lease of life with Rust-Oleum Gun Metal Metallic spray paint. He also sanded back the table top reveal the lighter, bare wood. Looks fab!
Naomi Templar’s dark wood, varnished extending table and chairs that weren’t quite her style, so she decided to give them a modern makeover using Rust-Oleum Gloss Finish Furniture Paint in Mineral Grey. Naomi then recovered the seats to add a pop of colour to bring it up to date.
