From workshop to idea session

Do you have any idea how trendy your home really is? Many familiar pieces of furniture or bric-a-brac hide an exciting and modern identity that can be released with just a little imagination and a lick of paint.

Restoring your furniture

Wall colours X395, G398, Taika Pearl Glaze gold and silver.


Restoring your furniture

Factory-painted cupboards that had turned yellow with age, were first painted with Otex Adhesion Primer (G398). The handsome artwork on the door was created with Feelings Furniture Paint (G398, V401, J500). The figures were painted freehand, but masking tape can also be used as an aid.

The picture frame was painted using three different colours (K200, Y484, F497) with a top coat of Taika Pearl Glaze in different colours (silver, gold).
NB. This finish is not wear-resistant and cannot be washed!

 
Restoring your furniture




The faded laminate surface of this lovely desk was first painted with Otex Adhesion Primer (F484) and given a new, durable finish with pleasing stripes using Empire F484, V401, N480 and Taika Pearl Paint gold.




Masking tape was used to apply the stripes neatly.


Remember to remove the tape immediately after painting!
