Ronseal Chalky Furniture Paint

Our Chalky Furniture Paint transforms furniture, doors & cupboards. And unlike other chalk paints it protects them too. So there’s no need to overcoat it with wax. You still get the chalky, flat matt finish that looks great. But it’s tough, so it’ll look its best for longer.

Before You Start

Make sure your room is above 10°C. Open your doors and windows for ventilation. Put down dust sheets to cover anything you don’t want to get paint on.

Prep - Bare Wood

Lightly sand your wood to give it an even finish and help your paint stick. Use 120grit sandpaper and sand in the direction of the woodgrain. Remember to wear a face mask. When the dust has settled, give the area a quick vacuum and wipe your wood with white spirit.

Prep - Previously Painted Wood

If your old paint or varnish is in good condition just give it a light sand with 240grit sandpaper. This will help your paint stick. If your paint is flaking or cracked you’ll need to sand it back to bare wood. The easiest way to do this is with an electric sander. Use 120grit sandpaper and sand in the direction of the woodgrain. It creates a lot of dust, so make sure you wear a face mask. When the dust has settled, give the area a quick vacuum and wipe your wood with white spirit. (Be careful preparing any wood that was painted before 1960, as they may be coated with lead paint. For more info give our Technical Services Team a call on 0114 240 9469).

Using our Chalky Furniture Paint

Give the paint a really good stir. Then put it on with a synthetic brush. Go in the direction of the woodgrain. You’ll need to put on 2 coats. Leave 4 hours between each coat. Your last coat will be touch try in 30 minutes. And that’s it, job done.

Usage Areas: All smooth indoor wood.
Compatibility: New or previously painted wood.

Duck egg blue by El blacmire

Goes on really easy, you can use a small brush or roller, second coat went on the next day as was very busy, it looks amazing, it's waterproof and doesn't scratch, i used duck egg blue, looks very Smooth, i painted on bare wood and did a little distressing, in my opinion it's far better than A S paint, because you just paint and it's done no waxing no buffing, Finished, Can't recommend this product enough and to top it off a little go's a long way , very pleased :)

Excited by discovery of ronseal chalky paint by Dove grey chalky paint

I just discovered ronseal chalky paint recently,and I'm so thrilled with it! Bought in Woodies in dublin-it was recommended by salesperson,as they were out of my regular chalk paint. The colour is perfect (I've since used minty green and duck egg blue)...and the finish is fantastic....add to that need for waxing or varnishing. I highly recommend this proud. ..but I do wish you had even more colours;)

Easy to use-no wax finish yey by Upcycling newcomer

I was fully Expecting have to wax/overcoat over chalk paint when upcycling an oak chest of drawers. Saw this paint that claims waxing is not required and thought i would take a punt! The paint Was easy to work and can be sanded easily for a smooth finish, for chalk it does appear to be hard wearing and no waxing means time And money saved.. The finished unit looks good. Don't expect it to be Exposed to much of a battering where it is So hopefully will stand the test of time in terms if wear and tear.

EXCELLENT by Ronseal chalk finish paint

I've used the Annie Sloane paint and the Rustoleoum paint and I find your paint the best. It covers really well and it,s good you don,t have to wax afterwards. Your prices are affordable also. A great product and one I would really recommend.
