Bring a chic, colourful touch to your home with a sideboard and some paint.
Check out the stylish DIY below!
You will need:
- Sideboard - a white sideboard with plain doors is ideal, but you can get creative with what you have
- 4 different shades of the same paint colour - we used Dulux paints 90RR 31/403, 78RR 54/274, 77RR 67/177, 64RR 80/073 (paint codes listed are from dark to light pink)
Tip: Alternatively, get a tin of your favourite paint colour and add white paint to create lighter shades.
- Masking tape
Carefully remove the sideboard doors. Then, plan out four equal sections on the doors and assign a paint shade to each. To achieve an ombré effect, use the darkest colour on one end and work towards the lightest colour on the other end of the sideboard.
Mask the first section out, making sure to go around the edges too. We only want the front of the doors to be painted.
Paint the first section on each door and leave to dry completely.
Once they’re dry, remove the masking tape around the painted area. Repeat the masking off and painting for the remaining two sections and colours. Leave to dry completely.
When all sections are dry, peel off the masking tape and reattach the doors to the sideboard.
Top off your chic ombré sideboard with a plant or two for a fresh and homely feeling. You could even pair it with an indigo blue tie-dye wall art to get a cheerful colour palette going.
In the spirit of spring, we’ve styled our pink sideboard with some Pantone SS21-inspired colours like French Blue, Marigold, Cerulean, and Buttercream.
