3 beautiful (and easy) ways with paint

27 Apr 2017

On the lookout for an inspiring new DIY project? As the days get chillier, we are drawn to projects that cosy up and bring added beauty to the home. Fleur Thorpe shares with us her latest clever ideas using Resene paint, including a Scandi wall hanging, beautiful toi-toi-inspired makeover for old drawers, and a teddy bear print made from her child’s favourite toy. Don't forget to share your projects using Resene paint here.  

Did you know... we have new DIY ideas added to our website weekly? From upcycling old furniture to creating a watercolour wall, click here to see our whole collection.

Inspired by the elegant shape of flax and colours of nature, Fleur painted basic drawers in Resene Waiouru, and stencilled a toi toi motif in Resene Flax. Drawers are a perfect canvas for getting creative, giving you enough space to go pattern crazy, or simple with a stencil like this one. Click here for the DIY. The wall is painted in Resene Tuna. 

Bring the feeling of a Scandi forest with this super cool wall hanging idea. It was made using linen, a stencil and Resene testpot in Resene Good As Gold. Isn’t it gorgeous? Click here for the DIY. The wall is painted in Resene Tuna. 

Looking for a piece of art for the little one's bedroom? Fleur used a soft teddy bear and Resene Cararra to create this cute print. It’s a great project for preserving the memory of a child’s special, well-loved bear or soft toy. Click here for the DIY. The walls are painted in Resene Eighth Canterbury Clay and the drawers are painted in Resene Pearl Lusta.
