Rust Oleum Furniture Paint shelf makeover

Our front room has had a rethink. I’d call it a makeover, but mostly it’s just been a lot of rearranging furniture.

I did need a new shelf. So when I was offered the chance to try some new shades of Rust-Oleum’s chalky finish Furniture Paint I just had to take up the offer. A bit of interior DIY was just what the room needed!

Here’s how I used Rust-Oleum Furniture Paint to make a scratched old shelf look modern again.

DIY Sleeper Bench Makeover

Annie Sloan sleeper bench makeover

Worn or weathered garden furniture doesn’t have to rot in the garage.

Repainting furniture is the easiest way to update the look. If you aren’t familiar with my Annie Sloan Chalk Paint obsession, prepare to be informed. Yet again chalk paint has worked its magic.

Here’s the 101: you don’t need to sand the entire surface, you don’t need primer, and it can be done in an afternoon. Seriously.

I love the solid, primitive look of sleeper benches. A brush stroke pattern was just the thing to make a simple shape a quirky part of the decor. If you want to use your bench outdoors, all you have to do is skip the waxing step.
