 We're often so focused on updating the interior of our homes that our outside spaces get overlooked. Give your decking the makeover it deserves using our Firmtread Anti Slip Deck Coating. It's different to a paint since it will not entirely block out the finish or colour of the wood, instead it will enhance it's natural beauty. The oil based liquid tint also provides excellent traction on slippery decking to keep you safe all year round. 

 

 Paint your walls using Rust-oleum Chalky Wall Paint

 We can't stop talking about our Rust-Oleum Chalky Wall Paint. A water-based paint with virtually no odour that gives a luxurious modern matt finish to any wall or ceiling.

What we love most about it is the durable finish is also scrubbable, (tested to ISO 11998 Class 1 Wet Scrub Rated) which means if you accidentally mark the wall (when you've had one too many glasses of prosecco - accidents happen!) the mark can easily be removed without any damage to the paint finish.  

 

chalky furniture paint

The great thing about upcycling furniture is not only are you saving money and giving purpose to an object that would have otherwise been scrapped, there are also no limits to your creativity. Scroll through Pinterest or Instagram, find your inspiration and then go for it. And.. if it doesn't quite go to plan you can just say 'i meant to do it like that' or 'yea that's 100% the vibe i was going for'.

 Our Chalky Furniture Paint is ideal for updating furniture without the hassle of sanding and priming before application. The paint leaves a lovely flat matt finish, which can be sanded to show the surface underneath, giving a distressed feel if desired.
