DETAILS ON THE LINES OF PAINT WE OFFER
We have 3 DIY paint lines you can buy online and in the store with us…a few tips on selecting your products for your next project. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or grab me on IG at stylishpatina. I am pretty responsive on Instagram messenger.
1. Jolie Matte Paint – This is my first recommendation for new furniture/DIY home project users. You can find all of our FREE downloadable resource guides HERE. It is the easiest to use, sticks to anything (wood, metal, cement, laminants, etc.), no priming, no sanding. You just pop the top and go. You now have two options for sealing it 1. Furniture wax or 2. varnish (poly) that comes in a low luster or gloss sheen. This line is great for furniture, kitchen cabinets, floor, bathroom vanities and so much more. How to tips and downloadable how to guides are available on our website here and they have a youtube channel here. Buy online here
2. General Finishes (GF) – We like the Milk Paint from GF line for modern looking furniture. This line is also pretty easy to use. It’s thinner so be careful for drips and you might want to scuff up furniture before painting. This is usually sealed with the GF high performance top coat that come ins flat, satin, semi gloss and gloss sheen. GF also has a cool product called Gel Stain that can give new life to table tops or any surface you want to keep the wood grain look but don’t want to sand, stain and seal. Buy online here.
3. Wise Owl One Hour Enamel – This is a new line for us. The One Hour Enamel product is getting rave reviews for cabinetry. It is known for its rock hard finish in one hour and no top coat needed (it’s built in the paint). You do need to clean your furniture well before using it and use two coats of their primer before applying the paint. They also recommend 24 hours between primer + paint so it take longer to finish a project. I also found that you don’t want to over brush the paint it dries fast so you need to apply it and leave it alone. It is suppose to self level (the brush strokes go away). This is the most tricky paint line we have but still doable and the finish is beautiful! Great for cabinets, tables, vanities, floors. Buy online here.
