Paint That Thinks It's Fabric! Can This Be True?
- There is a fabulous new product on the market by Maison Blanche Paints called Bouclé.
- Here is the dictionary definition
- bou·clé bo͞oˈklā/ noun
yarn with a looped or curled ply, or fabric woven from this yarn.
- How can paint look like this? Let me show you!
- The paint looks something like cottage cheese and is full of flecks in different shades. The colour I used is called Lafayette and has blues and whites in it.
- I had some dining chairs that I found at a local flea market that were in need of a makeover and started by cleaning years of grime from the vinyl seat. Look at the difference in colour after cleaning! YUK
- I gave the seat a coat of Maison Blanche primer to give the paint something to grip to and also to prevent any bleed through
With one coat of Maison Blanche Paint in Oyster, I was ready, when this was dry, to get to the exciting part! Watching paint dry drives me crazy!
- This is the first coat! I was worried that the lumpy parts would dry hard but follow the instructions and they settle down as they dry.
- This is 2 coats.
- It dries with a slightly raised feel but not rough, it is comfortable to sit on.
- I did not top coat this with anything, it is set really hard and I don't think it is necessary.
- I plan on using this product on drawer fronts next so watch this space!
- It comes in 4 colourways and if you use the code JULIESRECIPE when ordering you will receive a free 4oz can of a special colour that I invented! How cool is that? It is called Julie's Dreamy Blue and is the colour used on this armchair....dreamy eh?
