Just because the weather is colder it doesn’t mean your DIY projects have to stop - whether it's making your home cosy ready for the festive season or touching up the paint work, here are some Winter jobs you can complete whatever the weather! 


Refresh your floorboards

Use our hard-wearing Floorboard Paint to give your floorboards a fresh new feel ready for Christmas and the New Year. Our two low sheen whites will give your floor a minimalist feel and make any Christmas decorations you put up pop with colour.

 Key features of Floorboard Paint

  • Hardwearing: protects, strengthens and dustproofs
  • No special tools or primer required (in most instances)
  • More hygienic as stains (even oil!) can be easily wiped off


 Save a piece of furniture

Bring your old furniture up to date with your décor by giving it the refresh it deserves by using Rust-Oleum Chalky Furniture Paint. In this consumerist society it's way too easy to think 'I'll just buy something new' when actually you can save money, save your furniture from the tip and create a one of a kind by upcycling pieces you already own.

If you prefer a satin finish over chalk, why not try our Satin Furniture Paint. Adding a timeless mid-sheen lustre, it comes in an elegant palette of soothing shades carefully curated to enhance any contemporary interior.

Key features of our Furniture Paints:

  • Water based with virtually no odour
  • No Priming or sanding necessary on most surfaces
  • Exceptional coverage in one coat
