Upcycle a Bed

Instead of throwing out furniture think about giving it a make over. Metal furniture looks great around the home. Co-ordinating several items by painting them creates a united colour scheme. If you have a piece of metal furniture that needs to be revamped, whether it is rusted, has flaking paint or needs a colour change, then Hammerite Metal Paint is ideal.

  1. Metal bed frames are easily transformed with Hammerite Direct to Rust Metal Paint in Smooth Finish.
  2. Begin by preparing the surface for paint. Abrade with a wire brush or sandpaper to remove any flaking paint or rust.
  3. Wash down with a mild detergent and water. Ensure all detergent is rinsed away and leave to dry completely before continuing.
  4. Stir metal paint thoroughly before using a good quality brush to apply a thin coat to the bed frame.
  5. Leave to dry for time specified on back of tin. Apply a second thin coat.
