Sit down for a while

And enjoy your handiwork. Paint old chairs and furniture to look attractive and invite your friends for a visit.

In the middle of a busy life it is good to just sit down with your favourite magazine or book. And how nice it is to sit on colourful and attractive chairs. Do n’ot throw away your old chairs, but give them a new life with the help of Tikkurila paints.


Summer is here_pre treatment


Careful pre-treatment makes the paint to last for a longer time. Remove loose and poorly attached paint layers from previously painted surfaces, and also the grey wood that is in poor condition. Replace the wooden parts that are no longer good. Wash off mould and dirt with the Tikkurila Homeenpoisto Mould Removal or Tehopesu Power Clean solution. Sand the surface matt before painting and remove the sanding dust with a brush or a cleaning cloth. The chair in the picture whas been painted with Miranol, colours N358 (blue) and N323 (red).
