Complement tonallyIf you’re taking the plunge and painting your kitchen table, it’s tempting to pick the colour of your cabinets for continuity. Or you might go for another strong shade in the room – here it could have been black, like the worktops, or white, like the walls. Any of these would have worked, but this idea makes for an interesting alternative, too. The shade of the table (which has been painted all over and given a distressed finish) is the same tone as the grey of the cupboards – which is what makes it so complementary – but a mid grey-blue.See more photos by clicking on the image and hitting ‘Other Photos in This Project’ on the right.Get ideas for painting other pieces of furniture around your home
There’s cleaning, and then there’s deep cleaningNon-clean freaks are usually content to simply wipe down the stuff you can see in your house, such as the kitchen worktops or the floor. But a true clean freak goes deeper. Much deeper. To them, unclogging a drain, washing the freezer and vacuuming the chimney are all vital and highly rewarding tasks.
Jargon bust No 4: In-frame doorsAn in-frame door is a door that’s crafted separately from the carcass and sits just within the frame, so some of the frame is visible. The door is then fitted into the frame using good-quality hinges to create a robust and solid unit that will last for years.
