Pro Renovator 88mm Wall Paint Brush
Give the edges of the ply panel a sand to smooth them out.
With your newspaper underneath to protect where you're working, use the paintbrush to give the ply panel a wood stain.
After the stain has dried, use a pencil to draw a big heart in the middle of the project panel.
Carefully hammer in nails along the line you've drawn. Try and make them about 2-3cm apart.
Tie the stringline to one of the nails and start criss-crossing it across the panel.
Tie the string on a nail and run it around the outline of the heart.
Make a knot on a nail when you're finished to tie the string off.
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.
