Milk Paint Made Modern!
.
Fusion Milk Paint is now available Shabby Nook! Milk Paint comes in powdered form – giving you control over how much or how little paint you want to use. It is much thinner than most paints but gives fab coverage – it absorbs into the wood fibres, or, if you want to use on a non-porous surface, just add some Fusion Ultra Grip to help it bond to the surface. Milk Paint gives a matte, chalky finish and will require sealing with a top coat. It only takes about 30 minutes to dry and cure – super fast compared to most other paints!
 
The beauty of this paint is that it’s versatile. You can achieve a smooth, flawless finish with its self-levelling formula, or go for a chippy, shabby chic finish. Its buildable application lets you achieve the finish you want. You can also use milk paint as a stain by adding more water to the mix! It’s so easy to use – just add water, mix and get painting!

Take a look at the range over on our website – there are 25 gorgeous colours and we’ve included some ideas for how to achieve different finishes. Be quick though – we only have limited stock at the moment!

We have been hearing some amazing feedback about Dixie Belles Silk All in One Mineral Paint since it launched in the UK in November 2020! It has excellent coverage and is durable, easy to clean and suitable for use indoor and outdoor use. With built in primer, stain blocker and top coat it's no wonder it is becoming a firm favourite with our customers!

When deciding which colour to use on your project it is really useful to see some colour swatches - and here at Shabby Nook with have you covered offering you a choice of handpainted swatch sticks and a fan deck for the Silk range!
.

Glorious Grey!

Returning to In The Spotlight this week is Laura Downes with this gorgeous vintage grey sideboard! It is the first time Laura has used the blending technique on such a big piece and hasn’t she done an amazing job?!

To achieve this look Laura used Dixie Belle Paint Company’s Mud, Mason Dixon Grey, Hurricane Grey, Gravel Road, Midnight Sky, Best Dang Wax in Grunge Grey, Black Gilding Wax, Gold Gilding Wax and Clear Top Coat in Flat.

We love the ombre effect that has been achieved! It looks so elegant!

Laura shared this piece within our private Facebook Group – for more inspiration, top tips and connections with other painty peeps make sure to join our private Facebook Group Furniture Painting Hub – With Shabby Nook today, and don't forget share your own work!
