Reclaimed Dreams

With this look, old becomes gold. Upcycle shabby chic furniture by using mismatched colours

How to get the upcycle look and make use of your old drawers that need a revamp.

Start by removing the handles on the drawers you are painting – the key to this look is leaving some drawers unpainted. 

Mask the drawers that you do not want to paint. Rub down and prime the drawers to be painted using Crown Multi Surface Primer and Undercoat and allow to dry completely. Use a paint suitable for application on wood. 

We used Crown ‘Lemon Squash’ Kitchen Matt Emulsion which is suitable for walls, wood and metal along with  ‘Soft Shadow’ Non Drip Satin to bring these drawers up to date.
