  • Step 1

    Lightly sand the wood, smoothing off any rough edges or imperfections. Then wipe off the dust to get a smooth paint surface.
  • Step 2

    Use a specialist chalk furniture paint, no primer needed. Top tip – wrap the cling film around the bristles of your brush to stop it drying out.
  • Step 3

    To protect your upcycled furniture and bring out the natural beauty of painted wood, polish it off with a quality furniture wax.
