A boring wooden chair can have new life breathed into it for very little money but lots of imagination, with a mixture of painting, some good photocopied images and a bit of sticking.
You will need
Tangerine Twist paint from Dulux 3 x £1 tester pots at B&Q
- Sand the chair
- Paint the chair and leave to dry
- Find copyright free designs on the internet, enlarge and photocopy the designs
- Cut out the shapes
- Blue tack the images into position on the chair. When you are happy with composition stick into place using PVA glue.
- Paint on coats of PVA varnish to give a good finish to the chair.
Instead of buying new paint, use what you have in the house and mix colours to create something new and interesting. This is a great way of using left over paints.
