Slideshow: Colourful furniture

Samantha Pynn and Andrea Ford

Isn't it amazing how a little bit of paint, fabric and ingenuity can transform a piece of furniture from dated to divine? Here, STYLE AT HOME used fresh shades of highgloss paint overtop all-purpose interior/exterior Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 primer to give a new-again look to garden furniture that had been languishing in storage for far too long. Best of all, the rejuvenated pieces look just as pretty indoors as out.
