Add some sparkle to old furniture

Restoring old pieces of furniture is a cost effective way of transforming the look and style of a room, whether it’s an existing piece that you already own or a cheap buy at a car boot sale or vintage or charity shop. All you need to do is choose your piece of furniture, prepare it and then paint it!

To create a nice neat finish, ensure that you sand down existing paint and varnish. Apply a layer of primer followed by your desired colour and finally a coating of wax to seal.
