I've had this forest green patio set for so many years and it has weathered many Canadian winters outside.
It had lots of rust coming through on the backs of most of the chairs. I was contemplating getting rid of it this summer just when Country Chic Paint announced its new All-In-One Decor Paint.
"Country Chic’s All-In-One Decor Paint is the best choice for repainting any piece of furniture or home decor. This clay paint is self-priming on most pieces, is eco-friendly and will leave a beautiful chalky finish. It gives excellent coverage (requiring less coats) and can be used for both interior and exterior projects."
Exterior too! Yep, that's right!
"This brand new clay-based line was exclusively formulated by our trusted manufacturer (who has been in the paint industry for over 80 years) and we believe it will rock your world. The adhesion is amazing and the paint dries to a super durable finish that doesn't require a top coat."
"If you want to distress your piece, then this is the best paint for the job. You will love how simple it is to create a shabby chic look with Country Chic Paint."
This was the perfect project for trying out this paint. The patio set had lots of flaking paint so I sanded as much of it as I could and then primed it with Rona brand rust primer to contain the rust. I wanted a more vintage look, and white was what I had in mind.
What do you think? Looks almost brand new doesn't it? Ahhh, the power of paint!
This new paint line is available in most of the same colours as their regular paint. Eventually, all the colours will become available in the All-In-One Decor Paint.
I mixed up "Vanilla Frosting" and "Simplicity" to get a medium white and rolled on the paint. You can also use a spray-gun to apply it.
I found it covered better when I rolled on top and under the chairs and table.
Because of the dark green colour under, it required 2-1/2 coats to get complete coverage, but the rolling really did not take very long.
I had mixed up two 16 oz. jars and had enough for only 3 chairs and the table.
If you are using the All-In-One Decor Paint for an exterior project, it is best to let it cure indoors for about a week before setting it outside. After the curing period, the paint really does stick.
I love the new softer look.
I moved the table from its original spot. It looked so much prettier in front of my blooming white hydrangeas.
