Fusion Mineral Paint has helped me transform our home from dated to delightful in five different areas. After painting all of our walls Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee, I knew the wood tone needed to change. So, over the course of a weekend, I brushed on two coats of Coal Black with a regular 2″ short-handled paintbrush, sealed it with Deft Acrylic in satin, and the rest is history. Fusion Mineral Paint has a built-in top coat, so there isn’t always a need to use a sealer. The only wear has been the newel post at the base of the stairs because that’s the part everyone grabs…nothing a little soap and water won’t fix. When I was renovating Hannah’s Timeless Teen Girl Bedroom, I found these vintage Chippendale nightstands on Facebook Marketplace and knew they were perfect.
They had a beautiful shape and interesting details, but the paint color and condition made them look tired. You can read my step-by-step tutorial about painting these beauties here: Hand-Painted Chippendale Nightstand Makeover.
It certainly wasn’t the easiest project, but it was an affordable and non-toxic way for me to break up all the brown and give us a floor we love until we can replace the tile. For the floors, I used Fusion Mineral Paint’s Ultra Grip primer, and sealed it with SealKrete garage floor sealer because if ever there was a project that needed proper prep work and an incredibly durable top coat, it was this one.
This arched cabinet (aka: the most epic Facebook Marketplace find ever) is the piece of furniture I get asked about the most. In order to avoid painting the glass panes, I used a product called Masking Liquid.
I took advantage of the fact that there is a built-in top coat, and just left it a more matte finish. The Fusion Mineral Paint piece de resistance in our home is our Cozy Café Kitchen.
I then sealed every painted surface with Deft Acrylic in satin because this is a kitchen…it needs to be easy to clean.
This post is in no way sponsored…I’m simply sharing a product I love and use all the time, as well as answering the question, “What paint did you use for that?”
