Hi my name is Denise Hardy and I love everything in connection with the home i.e. Interior Design, Hand Painting Furniture, Decorative Painting Techniques and Art.

 

I live in Alicante, Spain with my husband in a beautiful villa which we both love and work hard on making it our home.  I have been established in creating beautiful homes since 1998 and never get tired of doing what I do.

 Revamped Patio Chairs

The other day I was given two old patio chairs by a friend who didn't want them anymore as they had rusted very badly and she wanted to purchase some smaller chairs for her balcony as she doesn't have that much space.  She knew I could revamp them and that we had plenty of space for them around our villa, so gave them to me.


We have been doing lots of work at our villa over the past few months and one of the items we revamped were some iron 'reccias' (bars) at some of our windows and had painted them from black to grey.  Therefore we already had some paint left over from that project.  I used Hammerite Direct to Rust Metal Paint.  This paint is durable, corrosion resistant.  It has a very smooth appearance and smooth to the touch and sheds water well.  It is available in a variety of colours and can be applied directly onto rusty metal and there is no need for a primer or undercoat.  I used the colour Silver, which goes with the colours I have outside.
