Find a well-ventilated space and place the organiser on a drop sheet or cardboard to protect any nearby surfaces. Make sure you set the organiser on raised props so that it’s not touching the ground. (This will prevent anything from sticking to it once you paint it.)
Shake the spray can well and apply a light coat of spray paint to the top and sides of the organiser, keeping the spray can moving so the paint doesn’t run. Remember to spray the inside, as well. Once the organiser is dry to the touch, turn it around and spray paint the back. Leave to dry before applying a second and third coat as needed.
Now is the time to let your creativity shine through! Create some fun drawer labels using coloured paper, marker pens, stickers or anything else that comes to mind!
Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.
