Homestead House has taken 10+ years of experience, expert testing, and refining to provide what furniture painters require: zero VOCs, durability, strength, and environmental safety. With a chalk-like finish to mimic Homestead House Milk Paint, this 100% acrylic latex paint requires no priming, sanding, or top coat!
Where can I use it?
Homestead House Furniture Paint can be applied to almost any previously painted or coated surface without priming or prep work. Be sure to follow the directions to remove any previous waxes or grease from your surface prior to painting. This is an interior paint and is not intended for exterior use.
How durable is it?
After this paint has cured it is highly durable and has a washable finish, without needing a top coat. You may of course add a beautiful lustre with any wax on top! The paint is dry to the touch after 2 hours and re-coat time is 4 hours. Cure time with all acrylic paints is approximately 21 days, however the painted surface can be used gently after 24-48 hours of drying.
How much does 1 quartcover?
Homestead House Furniture Paint has excellent coverage! In one quart your expected coverage is 150 sq ft.
Is it easy to distress?
Absolutely! This paint is very easy to work with. However, we suggest distressing soon after the paint has dried. It is very durable, so distressing is a bit more work after it has started curing. Wet distressing is very easy with Homestead House Furniture Paint.
