Spruce up your home us­ing a new twist on a clas­sic paint­ing tech­nique with the help of Rust-Oleum Colour Wash paint

The up­cy­cling in­te­ri­ors trend is more pop­u­lar than ever — and it’s easy to see why. In­stead of blow­ing the bud­get on vin­tage pieces or brand new shabby chic fur­ni­ture, you can spend a bit of time and ef­fort on some­thing that you feel has po­ten­tial and, with a bit of cre­ativ­ity, you can make it Etsy-wor­thy.

If this is some­thing you’ve al­ways wanted to do, but you don’t know where to be­gin, then you’ll love Rust-Oleum’s Colour Wash paint. Avail­able in four pearles­cent pas­tel shades, it makes DIY dec­o­rat­ing easy, lightly tint­ing wood and in­fus­ing it with a bright pop of colour, while still al­low­ing the at­trac­tive nat­u­ral grain to come through for an au­then­tic look.

Ap­ply­ing a beau­ti­ful translu­cent shade to bare or un­painted wood is a sim­ple way to add tex­ture, di­men­sion and nat­u­ral paint lay­ers. Rust-Oleum’s Colour Wash paint al­lows you to per­son­alise a tired piece and give it a new lease of life.

The project

Up­cy­cle wooden wine crates to cre­ate in­ex­pen­sive colour­wash bath­room shelves. Dress them with your favourite pam­per­ing prod­ucts and ad­mire your hand­i­work as you en­joy a re­lax­ing soak in the tub.
