Midacote Paint Surfaces

Give your furniture a few more years of life with a fresh coat of Midacote paint

Midacote Paint Surfaces

It’s interesting how paint can transform utilitarian surfaces and give them a completely different vibe. This is an example of how painted chipboard looks, when coated with Midacote Satin. It makes a great backdrop for plants in a patio area (photographed here at the Montebello Garden Centre in Newlands.) We like how the bright stripes look in fresh pure white and postbox red. (Paint & Place has a great selection of bright reds.) We’ve also seen a similar effect where tables were covered with hessian, and a solvent-based paint like Midacote Satin was used to ‘glue’ the fabric to the table, creating an interesting textured surface. (And it’s washable.) The idea, really, is to consider paint to give unexpected character to surfaces – and if furniture looks like it’s on its last legs, it’s amazing how a coat of paint can give it a few more years of life.

Paint & Place makes donation to Kangaroo Mother Care Ward

7 May

DONATION: To Kangaroo Mother Care Ward

WYNEBERG Paint & Place owner, Marc Thom, made a generous donation of paint to the Kangaroo Mother Care Ward of the Karl Bremer hospital in Bellville. The ward in mention cares for premature babies but was in dire need of some maintenance care as well.

“I know Ofelia Abrahams, from Pick ‘n Pay Hyper in Brackenfell, who is in charge of community upliftment in the area”, said Thom. “She mentioned that the Kangeroo Mother Care Ward was in need of some uplifting itself and I thought I might be able to help.”

Donation to Karl Bremmer hospital.

Marc Thom went out to assess the needs of the ward and specified paint from the Midas Envirolite Range containing ZERO volatile organic compounds (the bad stuff). “It was important that environmentally friendly paints were selected for revamping the ward as it houses premature babies”, said Marc.

Marc Thom donated enough Paint & Place supplies to repaint the entire Kangaroo Mother Care Ward, including all the bathroom walls, cubicles, doors and cabinets.

The painting of the ward was done by a group of volunteers who work at the Pick n Pay Hyper in Brackenfell. Ofelia Abrahams and others were hugely grateful for Marc’s generous donation, which coincided with a donation of paint vouchers to a School Golf Day organized by Pick ‘n Pay Hyper. In thanking him, Ofelia wrote, “Wow! THANK YOU so much for your fantastic contribution at a moment’s notice towards the Paarl School Golf Day.”

The new paint job at the Karl Bremer Hospital has made a significant difference and Paint & Place wishes to thank Marc Thom for his generous donation.
