My Resene Upcycling Award entry

Kathie from Westshore

Whimsical, funky, quirky, a coat of many colours.

I really have no idea what this incredibly ugly, dark item of furniture was used for. It possibly was a television cabinet, or a Wot Not, but it deserved a bright new life.

I removed the plinth and the top shelf, the columns holding the top shelf became legs, the split door was repaired and then it’s colour transformation began.

My most used, and favourite product is Resene Smooth Sealer, perfect for most furniture restoration jobs. Two coats covered the dated dark mahogany, it was then ready to paint using Resene test pots of complimentary bright colours (Hyperactive, Limerick, Kitsch, Colour Me Pink, Left Field, Paua & Bright Red) I am no artist, so used lots of masking tape.
A final coat of Resene Clearcoat to protect the paintwork completed the Upcycle.
Actually I still don’t know exactly what it is, or what it will be used for - but who cares?
It’s now standing proudly, instead of hiding away sulking in a corner of the op shop.
