Our bedroom makeover has been on my list for quite some time, and I was getting a little frustrated that I'd not had the time myself to get it done. So... I had an idea... as I do...
Engaging a dear friend to paint my, having seen her own beautiful projects, was the key to my quandary.
And, needless to say, I'm absolutely delighted with the end result. With new linen and newly painted furniture our master bedroom has truly been transformed (just new wall lights and some artwork to go now).
Our bedroom furniture before...
New linen from www.queenb.co.nz.
These pieces of furniture were rolled which of course makes it super QUICK to transform. With just two litres of White paint used, this really is an affordable way to get a 'new' bedroom suite.
A quick scout around on Trade Me and I found the gorgeous glass handles to add the finishing touch of texture and sparkle. At just $13.99 for a box of 10 they were a really great price too!
Question: How could you transform your bedroom? Now that's got you thinking...

Hi Kathryn, I'm wanting to paint my glass-topped garden table... is there anything special I need to do to make it weather-proof?

Hi Paula, Upcycled & Co. Furniture Paint has its own sealer in it, therefore you don't need anything other than the paint. It's an indoor and outdoor paint.

so she dosent give any instructions, eg , was it just two litres of your white paint , and a spong brush etc , i have done five peices of furniture now and am about to tackle a set of draws that have a old high gloss on them but i want them to look semi shine to make it easy to wipe them and give them a fresh look .

This set was done using a roller and took four coats. Painting with a roller always takes more coats and a little more paint, but it is much quicker. You can use a combination of rolling a couple of coats, then brushing the final one if you wish as this will give a smoother finish.

Hi there, trying to talk my hubby into upcycling our 15 yr old rimu bedroom set but he is reluctant as it has a build up of furniture polish on it from over time and he says it will be to hard to do, would we need to sand it first or can we just use your paint straight over the top? I love what you do with furniture upcycling so want to really get him on board with the idea.
