35 minutes (+ drying) Clean with a damp cloth, then sand. Mask off areas not being painted. Stir Dulux Primer & Undercoat for Multi Surfaces before applying, then leave to dry.
40 minutes (+ drying) Cut out Art Deco-style wallpaper to fit the tiered trays. Apply border adhesive and allow to soak for a minute, then apply to the surface and brush down any air bubbles. Allow to dry.
15 minutes (per coat) Stir the paint and apply the first coat to the frame; leave to dry. Lightly sand the surface, then apply a second coat. Allow to dry.
20 minutes (+ drying) Add 1-2 coats of clear varnish to the wallpaper and allow to dry. Remove the masking tape. Now you’re ready to roll out the cocktail classics!
Be brave and paint your bathroom vanity unit in bold Black. It makes for an elegant statement paired with chic metallic accents and sleek subway tiles – perfect for shameless #shelfies to show off your most covetable beauty products.

Bed in the Clouds
Four-poster beds are back in fashion – their stately design brings a sense of comfort and security. Wake up to happy hues by painting the entire frame in vibrant Orange Fizz – it’s like enveloping yourself in a warm embrace.
For a fun update, paint a chest of drawers in cooling Peppermint Candy. Then add pops of colour to the sides of the drawers – start with Willow Tree and work your way through Jurassic Stone to Luscious Lime.
