You don’t have to paint an entire room to change the look and feel of a space, as these five quick and easy micro makeovers reveal, from a flatpack bookshelf and cabinet to a bench and feature wall – plus a bedside table.
With a little imagination, you can upcycle what you already have to make the old new again, and all without breaking the bank.
The secret to such effortless transformations? Dulux Simply Refresh Multi-surface with a 2-in-1 formula including paint and primer that can be applied directly to a range of bare and previously painted surfaces, including wood, metal, melamine and MDF. It’s water-based and quick-drying, meaning it couldn’t be more effortless, either.
Better still, small refreshes such as these are perfect for using up any paint you may have left over from bigger projects, while being a great way of adding personality to rented property if you’re not permitted to go all-out.
Crack open a tin and get creative.
