Here’s how to create a quirky paint effect using light in your kitchen using ultra-trendy colour-blocking.

What you’ll need:

  • A torch
  • Drop sheet
  • A paintbrush
  • Masking tape
  • Someone to assist you
  • Tripod-mounted laser level
  • A Hamilton’s Polypile Roller
  • Plascon Double Velvet Golden Daffodil
  • A full day to complete the quirky paint effect

How to get the look:

Step 1: Darken the room or switch off the light at night. Hang the torch (or ask a trusty friend to aim a torch) downwards from the position of your overhead light.

Step 2: Trace the outlines of the spotlight with your laser-level beam, including the outlines of the light that falls across any furniture. Mark off the outside edges of the furniture.

Step 3: Use the Hamilton’s Polypile roller and paintbrush to fill in the spotlight beam shape with two coats of Plascon Double Velvet Golden Daffodil – allowing drying time between coats. Remove the masking tape.

Paint Tip:

If you’re a DIY fanatic, it is totally worth investing in a canvas drop cloth. These are durable, puncture-resistant, and absorb paint drips – unlike plastic drop sheets, which can also be slippery when wet.
