As you know I'm now running my Furniture Paint 101 & 102 workshops around New Zealand. The classes are filling up more and more, which is really wonderful.
In November, Hercille came along to Furniture Paint 101. Her vivacious and cheeky personality really added spark to the group that day, and she had a knack of getting everyone behind the lens. It was so much fun, we really had some laughs. With her new skills she went home and created this absolutely stunning dining room suite using Upcycled & Co. Furniture Paint.
Oh and remember, with Upcycled & Co. Furniture Paint there is NO SANDING, NO PRIMING, NO WAXING AND NO VARNISHING. At least 99% of the time there is no sanding (you only need to if you have flaking varnish or paint, a rough surface you want to create a smooth finish on or if you have old shiny 70s or 80s formica).
Here's what she did:
1. Applied one coat of Sky.
2. Applied one coat of Ash.
3. Watered down the Gold paint slightly to create a smooth slightly washed effect on the table top.
4. Painted the chairs in Gold.
5. Finally, she applied a clear coat. This is recommended if you're using our Gold or Silver as a top coat as they're really only designed to be used for highlighting.
Isn't it just stunning!
Well done Hercille, I can't wait to see you at Furniture Paint 102!
