Upcycling is not only on-trend, but can also save you lots of money.

Furniture can become tired and worn over time. No need to throw it out, it just needs some prep and a coat of protection. Ronseal has several products that will not only restore furniture to its former glory but will also protect it.

Ronseal Stays White 2 in 1 primer and paint will prime and paint your trims or wooden furniture at the same time, in only two coats. Even better, whatever you paint is guaranteed to stay white for 10 years. So that means no yellowing. Sorted.

If you’re looking to upcycle furniture to achieve that shabby chic look, our Chalky Furniture Paint is perfect. Available in eight classic colours from Duck Egg to English Rose, you can give your furniture a flat matt finish that is protected against scuffs and doesn’t need a sealing wax or lacquer, saving you money and time.

If you have any old pallets lying around, put them to good use! These can be upcycled into an outdoor coffee table in no time. Simply give the wood a good sand down, use some extra wood for legs, or attach some castors, and add a lick of paint if you want some colour – a new coffee table in no time.
