How to paint previously painted furniture by Johnstone's

02 July 2017

Johnstone's have a long history in the UK as being one of the top manufactuer's of high quality paint. B&M is proud to be working with Johnstone's and to offer a huge range of paints and accessories to help you decorate you entire home.

We stock a range of different types of paint from matt emulsion to wood stain to Kitchen & Bathroom specific mid sheen paint that is highly durable and has a gloss finish.

If you have old furniture laying around that you just can't part with but doesn't match your new colour scheme, Upcycling may be the answer and reviving old furniture can be really easy with a simple lick of paint.

Make sure the piece is dust and dirt free by cleaning the item with sugar soap spray. Sand off any of the excess paint using fine sand paper. Rub the piece down with a tack cloth to remove any final dust or dirt.

Finally paint using a glass or silk Johnstone's paint of your choice and allow to dry fully.

We receommend using long even brush storkes to achieve a more polished and professional finish.

You can now enjoy the furniture with a new lease of life, thanks to a simply coat of paint. You can find more about the great Johnstone's products available at B&M by visiting your nearest B&M Store or visiting our website
