Turning the old into new and the new into old

Ready to give your furniture a new look with furniture paint techniques?


When you say 'can you do furniture paint techniques,' we say 'duco, distressing, colour changes, brushed, retouching and more!' We’re well known for using furniture paint techniques on furniture to achieve unique looks for your home. You may want to modernise your dining room table or give your pot plants an aged look. Whatever it is, we offer a number of techniques to change things up in your home.

Distressed Furniture Paint Technique


Our favourite type of distressed paint technique ‘resist.’ The process requires a paint application, applying a beeswax distressing product where you’d like the first coats colour to show up, applying a second coat and then sanding through to the various beeswax sections to show the first coats colour.

Colour Changes / General Furniture Paint Jobs


The scale of the job all depends on the current colour and what you’re looking to change it too. Sometimes simply applying 2-3 coats will do. For bigger jobs, e.g. changing blue to grey, we sand everything off, use a wood primer (which requires 2-3 days) and then apply a glossy or matt finish.

Dry Brushed Or White Wash Paint Technique

We refer to this a ‘milk washing’ at the shop, since we blend the consistency and colour with staining or tinting according to your preference.
