This was my first attempt at upcycling a piece for a bathroom renovation. While it’s not perfect- the paint definitely is! Easy to prep, easy to paint and excellent colour. Has given me confidence to keep going. Highly recommend- even for novices like me! (Photos don’t the colour justice!)
Previously I have upcycled a few items for myself using chalk paint. I decided to research into it and came across this product. What can i say. I did 2 tall boys using this paint. I had no idea how much a would need and so opted to get 3 x 250 ml cans. For both sets of drawers i only used less than one can. The main parts i did two coats and the drawer fronts i did 3 coats. The results were amazing. They look like they have been spray painted. I would highly recommend this paint. Easy to use. One of my tall boys were originally chalk painted and so i rubbed it back somewhat before applying the mineral paint. The other set was dark brown wood which i also rubbed down before painting. I wiped both sets down with mineral turpentine. Even though they were different stages to begin with both sets look downright beautiful now.
The actual product is amazing, but I did find the colour to be a lot brighter than expected.
