The January Blues - By far and away our best-selling colour for January 2018 was Silver Grey, followed by the blue hues of Mendip Mist and Heritage Blue. All from our Royal Exterior range, although Heritage Blue was the firm favourite in the Royal Interior. All three colours complement each other and the winter landscape wonderfully.

Upcycle old furniture

Upcycle old furniture

 

Upcycle old furniture - BeforeMuch joy can be experienced finding old furniture and giving it a new lease of life. We had a few old tired chairs at Protek, we rescued 2 unwanted chairs from a friend’s tip run and then (once the bug had bitten) trawled local charity shops to find a few more. We also found a small hardwood table that had been left outside and was so weather-beaten we were not sure we could salvage it. 

 

They were washed, repaired where needed and painted in some of our bolder colours.  They were painted in Royal Exterior Superior, it leaves a hard-wearing finish that is water resistant; perfect for stylish alfresco dining or funky fun to sit around a fire pit long into the evening.

 

Upcycle old furniture - AfterThese chairs were painted using just one sample pot each, why not have some fun and get creative in these winter months?

 

Colours used; Antique Rose, Spring Green, Passionate Plum (Coming Soon!) and Teal for the chairs. Beaumont Blue was used to restore the old table to look just like new.

This month's colours – December – A Royal Christmas

Protek Wood Stain - A Royal Christmas

Unbelievably December is here and we are storming towards Christmas and celebrations. Always a time of year to reflect and make plans. We have been having fun Christmas crafting with our Royal range painting decorations, reminding us of their great versatility and beautiful colours. We were particularly taken with how our Lime Green and Teal worked with the Gold (not yet available) to give a festive modern look. Why not give it a go?

 

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all our customers.

Design a Nordic inspired scheme

Protek Wood Stain - Christmas with a Nordic theme

 

Protek Wood Stain - Sample Pots - Nordic ThemeDesign a Nordic inspired Christmas decoration scheme using a traditional palette of predominately Red and White softened with greens. We had fun being creative with cardboard decorations that were bought to life with careful painting in Snow, Pillarbox Red and Meadow Green from the Protek Royal range. Touches of sparkle and glitter couldn’t be resisted to add to the festive theme.

 

They were photographed inside our shed that had had a light wash like coat of Royal China Clay to add to the effect.

Making a wooden Christmas Tree

Protek Wood Stain - Making a wooden Christmas tree 

YOU WILL NEED:

Wood off cuts

Tape measure

Pencil

Saw

Clamps

Hammer

Small nails or tacks

Wood glue

Protek Royal Exterior or Wood Protector

Pot to put tree in

 

Protek Wood Stain - Make a Wooden Tree - What you will need

 

 

1. We have used off cuts of wood to make the Christmas tree, but you can use anything you have to hand. You will need one long piece as the ‘trunk’ that the rest of the ‘branches’ will fit onto. The sizes are entirely up to you and the wood you have available. We used one piece that was approximately 800mm x 220mm x 10mm for the ‘trunk’ and cut nine pieces from a piece 20mm x 8mm for the branches. The longest bottom branch is 340mm and they then decrease in size by 40mm, so the second to bottom is 30mm. 

 

2. Mark the pieces of wood to require lengths and cut. We clamped them to a work bench to make it easier.

 

Protek Wood Stain - Making a wooden tree - stages3. Once you have cut all the pieces of wood to the required lengths, mark the centre of them so they will be even on the trunk. Next, place them on the trunk so you can measure their final positions. We left the same size gap between the branches as the width of the piece of wood, so 20mm. Mark the top and bottom of the branch position on the trunk, so when you take them off, you know where they should go.

 

4. Cut the top of the trunk into a point if necessary, so it cannot be seen behind the first branch.

 

5. Start with the smallest branch (which will go at the top of the trunk) and place a small amount of glue on both the trunk and the branch. Place it on the trunk, making sure it is in the correct position (centred and evenly spaced) and hammer in a small nail or tack. Continue down the tree until all of the branches are in place.

 

6. Leave the tree for at least twenty four hours to ensure the glue has set.

 

7. We intended to put the tree in a pot so did not make a base for it. Measure the trunk and cut the length according the pot you have.

 

8. Paint the tree and pot in your chosen colour.
