Modern designs



A splash of colour transforms a second-hand desk into an attractive contemporary feature.

Upcycling is the new black when it comes to interior design. All it takes is an old piece of furniture and a visit to your local Resene ColorShop.

When we wanted to give a retro style desk a modern make-over we Googled colour schemes from the mid-century period for inspiration and also checked colour schemes on the Resene website.   

We sanded the desktop and gave it several coats of a Resene Enamacryl waterborne enamel gloss which is not only durable, but because it has low VOCs the kids won't be breathing in lots of toxic fumes.     

It's important to mask off the drawer front with Medium Tack Masking Tape (green) because any paint on the inside edges  will make the drawers thicker  and tighter to fit in.
