What are we going to need?

The material that we are going to need to be able to give a second life to our furniture is the following:

Steps to follow to restore your furniture

First of all, we will clean our furniture with Aquaclean in order to remove all traces of dust and impurities that the furniture has.

Once the surface is clean, it's time to apply the paint. We recommend using our Chalk Paint since it is trendy thanks to its ultra matte finish. In addition, it is very easy to apply. With just two layers, you will achieve a result that is resistant to the passage of time and humidity.

For a more noticeable change, you can change the handles or knobs. It is important that the new accessories are the same size as the old ones so that they fit correctly. In addition, you have the possibility of painting your old knobs with Metallic Paint or any other water paint you like.

Although our chalk paint does not require surface preparation, if you want extra durability, apply varnish. Now all that's left to do is let it dry and... that's it! You now have a totally new piece of furniture.

Project ideas

As you know, the possibilities are endless when it comes to furniture restoration projects. We give you some ideas to get out all your creativity!

On this nightstand we have chosen to change the handles for more innovative ones and to paint it with the trend color of the year 2023, Boho strawberry. In addition, wooden slats have been used to achieve a different volume finish on the drawer units.

In this case, the color Pink Capricho has been used. A soft tone that brings a touch of sweetness to any room. As we can see in the video, use is made of the Anti-stain Wood Base which blocks the appearance of tannins and stains that are difficult to erase so that our wooden furniture remains intact.
