We all have a piece of furniture that’s seen better days. But we may not be able to afford to get rid of it - so how can you rejuvenate it instead?

Sometimes the simplest approach is the best. And you might be surprised at the difference a new coat of wood varnish will make to a tired table. Just 2 coats coat of our Interior Varnish can brighten up interior furniture no end. It’ll be touch-dry in a speedy 20 minutes.

Alternatively, if you have little more time, or if there is old varnish, simply sand the wooden table, wipe it clean of dust with a damp cloth and re-coat. You only need to wait an hour in between applying coats. It comes in 15 shades, from Deep Mahogany to White Ash, so there’s a hue to suit your taste.

If you fancy a change from wood grain, here’s a smart but simple method of rejuvenating a table to colourful effect. It only needs some complementary wallpaper, a sharp knife and wallpaper paste. The effect makes a big change. The paper will bring character and colour, and it’ll add a new texture to the room.

There are a variety of simple, modern and colourful ideas for brightening up an old favourite. And these ideas aren't just satisfying projects — up-cycling old furniture makes good environmental and financial sense too.
