Old drawers become new favourites

Do you have an old chest of drawers that seem destined for hard rubbish? Give them a fresh lease on life with a splash of colour and healthy dose of personality!

Firstly, remove or cover any handles, bolts or other ornamental features that you don’t want to paint. 

Second, sand the surface of the furniture so the paint has something to stick to.  

Apply a coat of primer to the surface of the furniture – making sure you cover the inside edges of hinges.

Lastly apply your colour and get creative! Personality is the key here. If you want to make your new furniture piece a permanent fixture in your home, make sure you choose a colour and style that suits the character of your home (and its inhabitants!).
