Christine Kobzeff has been painting furniture and makes an excellent job of upcycling a rather hideous looking piece of furniture. The end result is beautiful!
I’d recommend adding a coat (or two) of clear polyurethane once you’ve finished painting, to protect the finish of the piece. It’s better to use polyurethane rather than varnish as it won’t yellow with age.
The materials and equipment that you’ll need to paint your furniture are shown below.
- Chest of drawers or other item of furniture
- Wood filler
- Primer paint
- Satin paint
- Spray paint for hardwear (optional)
- Small Roller
- Paint brush
Did You Know?
According to industry statistics, more than ten million items of furniture are sent to landfill by local authorities every year. While an increasing amount of furniture is made from low quality materials, delivering a shorter life, 3m of these items could be easily repaired or restored.
Some 2million tonnes of clothing and textile waste is also generated each year in the UK, and 60% of it will be sent to landfill.
