The bike was covered in cobwebs and dust, so I cleaned with a brush to get rid of those. And that was all of the prep I did this time.
Then, I literally painted all over it with two coats of Upcycled & Co. Furniture Paint in Ruby. Using a selection of brushes from my DAS Set of 10 brushes (we sell these in our online store), I selected the small brushes to get in between the spokes of the frame in awkward places. The biggest brush then worked well to do the remainder of the frame.
Of course it dried really quickly and by the time I had finished the first coat, it was dry enough to start the second one where I'd originally started.
With this project, I wanted it to have a bit more of a shine, so I sprayed a coat of British Paints Spray Easy (satin finish) clear coat, and the job was done. It took me under an hour and I could cross something else off my list.
What my clients say
Practising furniture painting techniques really boosted my confidence and creativity.
I love the finish of your paint; it's more hard wearing than others and not having to wax is great!
I thought I would enjoy the workshop but not as much as I did... look out furniture!
