So a friend of mine asked me would I upcycle this unit for her - it was in her hall & that’s painted white so she wanted a pop of colour & had seen a table I had done in Renfrew blue so that’s what she picked!!!
Filled I used - because it was in the hall her kids would open the door & it would bang off the unit causing damage to the unit!
So I filled them and let it dry!
Sanded it once it was dry!
Using fusion mineral paint in sacred sage for the inside of the drawers & Renfrew blue for the rest!
Drawers been painted!
And so it begins!
So what I learned the last time I used Renfrew is - it’s very translucent- bev from where I buy my paint said if I put another blue underneath it - it won’t need as many coats
except Jenna wanted the same colour I had used already so I just went for 4 coats!!!!!
Second coat going on (I think I lost count)
tough coat top coat!
I mix the colour and the top coat together on my last coat!!
Roll it on!!!
Pop the handles back on
Screw in place
Then when I put it back together you could see the grey sides - so I got my frog tape out & worked my magic!!!
Couple of coats later!!!
And here she is!!!
My friend is totally delighted she took the leap and went for a bold colour!!!!
she loves it!!!
are you a bold or play it safe colour person???
