After 26 years, our veranda was in dire need of  sprucing up.

Living in the beautiful Laurentian region, we wanted bring all the beauty of nature inside the veranda.

I was completely in love with Nature, one of Colorantis new colours.

This beautiful colour was my inspiration for this piece.

It all started with adding colour to the room and upcycling a table and chairs found on Marketplace.



Spray the Cleaner and Varnish Remover on the table and chairs and use a blue multi purpose towel to make sure the product is evenly spread on all the surfaces. Let it work for 30 minutes.

Rinse well twice using clear water in order to remove all residues.

Use the sanding block in order to scratch up the surfaces.

Apply the primer with a foam roller and the 55mm and #6 Oval brushes.

Now it’s time to add some colour.



Apply the colour Cotton Ball using the foam roller for the top of the table and the #6 oval brush for the legs.

Apply Nature on the chairs using the 55mm  foam roller and the #6 oval brush.

Repeat this process if necessary.



Once the paint has dried completely, you can apply the varnish using a foam roller and the Snow White Brush.





The whiteness of the room and the beautiful vibrant hues already make this a very pleasant place to relax.

This is just the beginning of the transformation and seeing the current result, we are excited to continue with our project.

Married for almost 45 years, mother of two children and grandmother of two grand-daughters, I am now retired. Native of Delson, in Montérégie, my little family and I made the big move 29 years ago to come and settle near Mont-Laurier in the Hautes-Laurentides. Our dream being to restore an old house, we acquired a house built in 1906 and it was on June 21, 1992 that this great adventure began. I love decor and love originality, seven years ago I discovered a passion for the revaluation of furniture and various salvage items. Now that the house has been fully restored, I have great pleasure in personalizing it exclusively and at a low price.
