Product Description

With Shabby Chic Metallic Furniture Paint you can renovate and transform interior furniture with the least amount of effort.

Our chalk paint leaves a metallic finish which you can apply without the need of an undercoat or primer. Why? Because it’s so richly pigmented!

Better yet, the metallic chalk paint gives beautiful results not only on wooden furniture but can also be used directly onto metal, plastic, brick, stone, plaster or any suitably primed rigid surface.

Preparation:
For the best results when using the Shabby Chic Metallic Furniture Paint, ensure the surface is clean and free from wax or oil. If wax has been used clean the surface thoroughly with white spirit. We recommend that bare wood should be sanded before painting.

Application:
Stir your pot thoroughly prior to use to ensure the colour is properly mixed. If applying by brush, apply evenly following the grain of the wood. If rolling, use a short nap mohair roller.

To create a distressed look, apply two coats in contrasting colours. Allow to dry then lightly abrade with moistened sand paper or a stainless steel scoring pad – abrade with the grain of the wood. (click on the additional information tab for more info)

Coverage: 
Covers up to 12m2 per litre. The coverage may vary depending upon the method and rate of application and porosity of the furniture surface.

Drying Time: 
Within 15 minutes you can apply a second coat of paint, after an hour it is touch dry and after 2 hours it is safe to handle. The paint will be fully set and dry after 3 hours.

Clean Up: 
Our paint can be cleaned from surfaces with water. Do not empty into drains or water courses. Some local authorities have special facilities for the disposal of waste coatings.

Creating a Shabby Chic Look

In order to achieve a vintage or distressed look, we recommend the following:
• First, paint the furniture with a dark colour such as grey or brown.
• Next, paint over the base coat with a lighter colour such as Chalky White and let it dry.
• Finally, scour the edges with a fine sand paper or wire wool until the base-coat colour appears.

You don’t have to go Shabby

You may want to upscale a dated piece of furniture without distressing it. To do this, choose one of the many opulent colours available in our range to suit your home décor. Whether you have a varnished piece of furniture, or bare or painted wood, we would recommend you prepare your surface with a clean, light sand paper. There will be no need to prime or undercoat with our range of products, just paint and see the result.

Wax for long lasting protection

Once you have your desired finish, we recommend a clear wax for long lasting protection. The Shabby Chic Wax range leaves a satin finish with a medium sheen and allows your furniture to withstand the rough and tumble of daily life.
