NO SANDING is required for these Furniture Paint Design Styles

CAUTION: Sanding can result in scratch marks remaining in the painted surface.
CAUTION: Sanding can also damage ornate details and edges if sanded too aggressively.

Vintage Distressed

If a vintage distress, or a shabby-chic finish is desired, then this is the best choice of paint.

Wetting the surface with a damp cloth after the paint has dried, softens the paint and allows for a slow and controlled removal of the paint. This achieves a very realistic vintage effect.

Artistic Style

EXPRESSION is the only paint in the Cottage Paint line that can be wet distressed using a damp cloth. There is no sanding, no dust, and no damage to the furniture.

Rustic Effect

To add a bit of character, Cottage Paint EXPRESSION can be distressed for a rustic effect.

Simple & Solid

For a beginner or just a basic look, Cottage Paint EXPRESSION can be applied as a simple solid color.
