Kitchens and dining spaces are the heart of the home, so they deserve to be freshened up now and again, right? Updating your existing furniture is a failsafe way to do it on the cheap and lets you put your unique mark on your scheme too. We've done the, ahem, legwork for you, so all you need to do is follow this step-by-step guide to give your seating a personalised twist. And don't forget, you don't even have to paint the whole chair – just prep and paint the lower area of the chair leg for an instant accent. They'll be the talk of your next dinner party, we guarantee it.

Check out our Quick Dry Satinwood range (from £9.98) and our Paint Mixing Satinwood (for even more colours) to try this trick at home.
