Bedside table makeover

A fresh lick of paint for a completely new look

Nuances of blue flecked with touches of white and silver... colours that evoke images of the sea, waves and sky. This décor idea will remind you of the ocean and blue skies and bring a holiday feeling into your home. If you’ve got an old chest of drawers or a small cabinet (bought from, say, a car boot sale) that needs smartening up, you can easily transform it into a stylish bedside table with the help of our useful tips and edding permanent spray. Even newcomers to spraying will be able to achieve impressive results quickly using edding acrylic spray paints, as our Spray Basics section includes handy hints on how to master the perfect spraying technique. And if it doesn’t work out first time, simply respray it! edding spray paints are characterised by their exceptional coverage, short drying time and durability. If your cabinet is going to be subject to a lot of wear and tear, however, we recommend applying  a top coat of clear lacquer to protect it from scratches.
