Resene – Paint project, from Homestyle magazine

This handy industrial moodboard makes for an easy Saturday afternoon project.

Industrial moodboard

Moodboard for your next DIY project

You will need:


  1. This reinforcing steel usually comes a bit rusty, so brush it off before priming with Resene General Purpose Metal Primer.

  2. Once the primer is dry, brush on a coat of Resene SpaceCote Flat in Resene Black for a flat powder­coated look, or a Resene Lustacryl for a more wipe-able surface.

  3. Hang it up using three small nails; two at either end and one in the middle. And voila! An industrial moodboard to clip up ideas for your next DIY project!

    Accessories: Low triangle pendant, Seagrass basket, Twist desk, Brass bowl, Fort Standard bowl, Hay Bullet pen, Citta Design mud-cloth hand-knotted wool rug, Chair in Resene Dusted Blue. Walls in Resene Explorer and Resene Half Washed Green. Floors in Resene Colorwood Floor Stain in Resene Dark Rimu.
