One of the most rewarding and cost-effective household projects is reviving an old piece of furniture with a fresh coat of paint. However, just sanding it and coating with a brush make give it a lift, but buy re-painting with a spray lacquer finish the difference is clear to see ! No runs, no brush strokes, no streaks just a pure clean level finish.
Painted furniture can freshen up the look of any space-and you can easily change the colour to coordinate with a room’s colour scheme.
Good candidates for painting are dressers, tables, bookcases, mirror frames, and non-upholstered chairs.
Choosing the paint colours for your piece of furniture couldn’t be easier these days. We can match any colour under the sun or simply go online or to your nearest paint shop, pick up a swatch or any RAL, BS code and we can make up the paint to match !
Now days the Farrow and Ball range would be the most popular.
Perhaps the most fun, creative part of painting your own furniture is choosing just the right hue to harmonize with the colour scheme of the room the piece will live in. Keep in mind that darker colours will appear larger and might overwhelm a small room.
Brighter colours and colours that contrast sharply with the walls and other furnishings will draw attention to a piece and make it the focus of the room, while lighter colours will help a piece blend in.
So don’t throw out that old chair, or wardrobe just yet, call us and we can arrange for a home visit.
