Continuing to be an extremely popular product in the decorating world, furniture paint is a quick and easy way of adding a bespoke feature in your home interiors. Not only can it save you money, using furniture paint is also a great choice in reducing waste through breathing some new life into older furniture and create something you can love again.
Let's talk about your options when it comes to painting your furniture, with so many different paints to choose from, some of our most popular include:
A paint perfect for using on a range of surfaces including wood,metal, plastic, concrete and everything in between, Zinser AllCoat can be applied straight onto your furniture with its first coat acting as a primer and second coat acting as a finished coat. Available in 3 finishes, matt, satin and gloss, this Zinsser paint can be tinted to more than 19,000 different shades and matched to an equivalent shade of your favourite brands!
A great choice for your furniture, the Tikkurila Everal is extremely durable and can be used on a wide variety of surfaces including wood, plastic and aliminium. Water-based & quick drying, this high quality furniture paint can be mixed into thousands of colours including your favourite designer brands.
Delivering a smooth matt chalk finish, the Rust Oleum chalky furntiure paint is available in an array of colours. An excellent way to transform your old and worn furniture, this water based paint requires no priming or sanding on most surfaces and works great over old painted and varnished surfaces.
Adhesion primers do exactly what you think they do by simply adding a bonding layer between the substrate you’re painting and your paint to improve overall adhesion. Although some of our furniture paints do not require a primer, using a primer is really important when painting surfaces which are particularly difficult to bond to or in applications with high demands.
Some of our favourite furniture primers include:
A shellac based product, Zinsser B-I-N delivers an unmatched ability to adhere to glossy surfaces making it an absolute favourite when painting furniture. With no need to sand your surface first and drying incredibly quickly, Zinsser B-I-N is recoatable in just 45 minutes.
Knowing how many coats to apply can have a lot to do with the type of surface you are painting and colour you are painting with. In most cases, generally 2-3 coats of furniture paint is just about right.
You absolutely can! We here at DCO love an upcycling project, so much so we've even written an entire blog all about "How to Paint Your Ikea Furniture".
