Nooky Gossip 47: How To Paint a Blanket Box! Grime Cutter Trade Special! Autentico Update! Shabby Nook Affiliate Upcycle Saturdays!
Recently I have gone back to my roots and got stuck into some furniture painting! I restored this large oak blanket box (being expertly modelled below by Milo!) and painted it a gorgeous olive colour and added a bird and floral design transfer. That sounds pretty simple but if you had seen (and smelt!) the state of the blanket box you’d understand how much work went into it in the prep stage so I thought it would be a good time to share a quick ‘how to’ with you all.
We stock (and use!) General Finishes Enduro-Var, Flat Out Flat and High Performance Topcoats at Shabby Nook. They are all excellent products that provide amazing durability and protection to your pieces. But which topcoat should you use? We have collated some of the main points about each product to help you decide!
