Want to know the cheapest, easiest, quickest, most effective way to transform your home or furniture? Paint! And there’s nothing more satisfying that updating or transforming something yourself. You’d be amazed what you can get done over a weekend. But it’s always best to follow some expert tips to get the best result. A little prep can go a long way so I’ve teamed up with Berger Paints to inspire you and offer a little advice.
These one-minute video tutorials will guide you through two projects, step by step. The first shows you how to transform a piece of timber furniture (in our case, a hall table but you might have a chair, side table or stool that needs a change) and the second, how to make a big impact by painting your floorboards.
Project 1: Upcycling a piece of timber furniture
In this furniture tutorial we used two shades of grey: Storm Chaser and Silver Cup. Berger have a wonderful range of classic neutrals: greys, whites and beiges. The hardest task may be choosing which to go for! By keeping your colours classic, you’ll create a look that will last and won’t date.
Project 2: Painting your floor
I’d never considered using grey on a floor before, but painting your boards a light colour like this creates a bright, contemporary look and may make your space look bigger too. Berger Jet Dry is the perfect durable product for this job.
While I love the transformative effects of paint and find painting very therapeutic, I’ll level with you: I’m no expert! I really recommend you have a watch of these videos to pick up the great tips I learned from our friends at Berger Paints.
Good luck with your projects! We’d love to see the finished results!
