“I recently moved into my new house.  My open-plan kitchen/lounge/dining area looked very dark as I have dark Mahogany cabinets in the kitchen and dark brown leather couches with a dark Mahogany TV cabinet and lamp table in the lounge.

During lock-down I decided it was time for a make-over. I wanted to give my open-plan living area a softer look by using neutral colours to create the illusion of light and space.

This was my first furniture painting project, and I felt a bit nervous and overwhelmed. Tjhoko Paint is such an amazing product to work with and preparation is a breeze as no sanding or priming is required. I found the perfect combination of Tjhoko Paint colours to compliment the rest of my home and decor.


I painted my dining table & chairs, TV cabinet, lamp table and an old wooden window frame I converted into an antique mirror using Tjhoko Paint.


Tjhoko Paint Colours used

 Dining Table:   Cement Grey, Charm’s Silver, Don’s Wash, Elvis Mix, Lourain’s Cream, Sheriff Stone

Dining Chairs:  Charm’s Silver

Mirror:  Cement Grey, Charm’s Silver, Don’s Wash, Sheriff Stone

TV Cabinet & Lamp Table:  Vinia’s Stone, Cement Grey, Elvis Mix, Lourain’s Cream, Charm’s Silver”

I’m in love with my old furniture all over again. Mission accomplished; not only did the new lick of paint on my old furniture give it a lighter/softer and modern look but it definitely made the open-plan area look more spacious.

Thank you Tjhoko Paint!
