Painting furniture can be a great way to kick start the decoration of a room or a means of making an old piece match your new theme.
In this DIY, Instagram interiors influencer, Sofie from @threeboysandapinkbath, shows us just how easy it is to add some tribal style to an otherwise bland baby changer with three Rust-Oleum Furniture Paints and a little imagination.
Rust-Oleum furniture paint often requires no sanding, making upcycling furniture super straight forward.
Simply clean your furniture thoroughly to ensure there’s no grease or dust on the surface to be painted.
Take your Rust-Oleum Chalky Finish Furniture Paint in Chalk White and decant a little into a separate container. To create a white wash effect, thin the paint with water and stir thoroughly.
Brush on the watered down paint until you’re happy with the result and leave to fully dry.
Draw out your design on a piece of paper, anything goes, the bolder the better!
Measure out and tape your design onto the furniture using masking tape. Sofie kept her drawers in the unit as she found this easier.
Using you chosen Rust-Oleum furniture paints and colours, paint in each section of your design and leave this to fully dry. Sofie used used Chalky Finish Furniture Paint in Chalk White, Metallic Finish Furniture Paint in Gold and Satin Finish Furniture Paint in Carbon.
Once completely dry, peel off the tape and apply a layer Rust-Oleum Furniture Finishing Wax, this will ensures the paint finish is waterrepellent and seals against stains and marks.
Buff the wax with a lint free cloth!
