Kitchen Makeover with Autentico Versante

 When we moved into our house 5 years ago, when I was 5 months pregnant with Eliza and I was so happy that the kitchen was okay, we had looked round so many houses that had dodgy or just plain disgusting kitchens I was relieved to find one I didn't need to fix straight away!  Fast forward to the present and this kitchen is now the bane of my life, okay that might be a slight exaggeration but I really hate the melamine kitchen doors. Sadly we don't have enough money to build the kitchen of my dreams (we are...

Wooden Outdoor Furniture Makeover with Autentico Versante

Each time I go out into the garden, I see this wooden folding garden set that I bought from B&Q around 8 years ago now and it's looking a little bit sorry for itself.

The Painted House Rollers - How To Use

tips tutorials

We love using The Painted House Rollers on our furniture pieces, they bring a stenciled finish without the work and always provide a talking point. When I first tried them, I honestly could not believe how easy it was to create a perfect finish. Trust me, anyone can achieve a perfect look.  There are two different systems, one is designed for use on walls, wood or paper and the other for use on fabric. The basis of this system is that, the foam roller applies a thin layer of paint on to a patterned roller, which then transfers the pattern...

The Painted House Rollers - Fabric Applicator

tips tutorials

he fabric applicator works in a vey similar way to the wall applicator, as such that the pattern can be done either alternating or identical. You can use cahlk paint to paint fabic, however please be aware that you cannot wash it in the same way you normally would.  The applicator itself has a swiveling tank that has two parallel chambers, which means you can use either one or two coloured paints for a design. A series of cylinders within the tank transfers a thin layer of paint on to the pattern of the design roller, which then applies it...
