One of the simplest ways to update your home, or change your home’s theme/look is to repaint the furniture. And if you want to be adventurous, why not opt for a range of colours, but within the same palette. There is no limit to the creativity, and you can create something that is truly individual to you and your home. Of course, we love to use Farrow & Ball, with their broad range of 132 colours, each divided into ‘families’ or palettes, so you can be certain that your chosen colours will complement each other.

Farrow & Ball recommend 4 stages of painting furniture, aside from choosing your colour, to make sure that you achieve the perfect, desired finish.
- Sand down the piece until you reach the bare wood.
- Paint the furniture with Farrow & Ball wood primer and undercoat.
- Apply your first coat of Estate Eggshell in your chosen colour.
- Apply the second and final coat of Estate Eggshell in your chosen colour.
You can clearly see the stages above, with the sanded furniture at the bottom, followed by a coat of primer and undercoat, then two layers of Estate Eggshell for the final, desired finish.
‘There is something exciting and satisfying about finding an old piece of furniture for not much money, seeing its potential and renovating it to look lovely in your home’ – Farrow & Ball
