Fall in love with your furniture again. Adding colour to your home doesn't simply mean painting the walls, instead breathe new life into old furniture and join the up cycling revolution. With a lick of paint and a bit of imagination, you could fill your home with bespoke items tailored to the colour scheme of your dreams. How-to: create shabby chic style furniture. 1. Before you get started make sure the surface of the item you're painting is dry and free from any contaminants such as dust, oil or wax. Use a damp cloth to pick up any dust and a towel to dry it off. 2. Give the paint a good stir and apply with a brush or roller depending on the item you're painting. For furniture with a lot of detail, a good quality paint brush is recommended to ensure you reach into any mouldings and cut outs. 3. Apply the paint evenly, for a smoother finish try to keep your brush strokes in the same direction. If you want a solid finish, you will probably need two or three coats, but for a finish that you want to distress and sand back you will need fewer. Leave four hours between coats to ensure paint is fully dry. 4. Once your item is dry you can begin to spot sand some of the detail for a distressed vintage feel. For this you can use sandpaper, a sanding block or a wire scourer. For the best outcome start out on corners and edges and work from there. Remember to keep standing back from the item to ensure you are happy with the developing effect. 5. Once you are happy with the outcome it is time to protect the paint finish with a wax. Take an old rag or paint brush and work the wax into the paint a little at a time. Leave this to dry for 10 minutes then buff the surface with a clean, dry cloth to remove any excess wax. This will take 15 minutes to fully dry. For an alternative technique, you can use a contrasting colour as a top coat. Lightly sanding areas of the topcoat back with sandpaper will reveal the other colour underneath. Or, after the first coat has dried you might want to apply a little wax to some areas before you apply the second colour, resulting in the top coat not adhering to the waxed areas. This effect looks fantastic on objects with intricate carved details and really makes your furniture unique. Unleash your inner designer and spruce up a soulless stool or a woeful wardrobe with Rustoleum Chalky Finish Furniture Paint, Rustins Chalky Finish Paint or Ronseal Chalky Furniture Paint.
