If you’ve got a lot more time on your hands at the moment, and are looking for fun, creative ways to keep busy, why not use the time to complete those DIY jobs you’ve been meaning to get round to?
Perhaps you’ve been wanting to give a tired looking dining chair a new lease of life? Or maybe you fancy upcycling an old chest of drawers? Well now’s the perfect opportunity. We’ve got lots of painted furniture ideas to inspire your next project, starting with the two tone furniture effect.
Here’s more about the trend and how you can turn your fixer-upper into a trend-setter.
Why you should paint your own two tone furniture
Sometimes a fresh lick of paint is all you need to breathe new life into a worn-out piece of furniture. But why not take it one step further?
The two tone furniture is all the rage right now, particularly two tone bedroom furniture. It’s not only sustainable and cost-effective, it’s so simple to achieve – you can master it in a matter of hours (we’ll show you how later on).
Did we mention it also looks incredibly stylish and striking? By introducing the two tone furniture trend into your home, you’ll add both individuality and interest to your interior décor.
What colour scheme should I follow?
When it comes to upcycling your old furniture with the two tone effect, there are no limits to what colours you can use. Contrasting shades work best for an eye-catching colour mash-up. Take this wooden chair for example, we’ve painted the top half in this rich plum colour Russian Velvet 1 and contrasted it with an off-white shade for the bottom half.
