Jami Ray Vintage and Debi's Design Diary have teamed up to create the perfect paint for furniture makeovers - Cottage Color Paint! This water-based, one-step paint formula is specifically designed for heavily-used surfaces like tabletops, chairs and coffee tables. Cottage Color Paint is self-leveling and self-sealing for a smooth, long-lasting finish. Plus, it's free of VOCs and solvents, so it's odor-free and safe for your home and the environment.
The colors have been carefully curated to give you the perfect palette for your cottage style makeover. Cottage Color Paints are available in pints in five colors: Vintage Mint, Vintage Pink, Haint Blue, Grey Skies and White Linen. Each pint-sized can will cover approximately 25 square feet.

When it comes to comparing Cottage Color Paint to Debi’s DIY Chalk and Clay-Based Furniture Paint, there are a few key differences that set them apart. For starters, Cottage Color is a “one-step” paint, meaning it has a built-in sealer. This means that you cannot reactivate the paint with water after it has dried. In contrast, the DIY Paint chalk and clay-based formula does not have a built-in sealer and requires either wax or topcoat to seal. Another key difference is that Cottage Color can be diluted with water only up to 10%. However, with the DIY chalk and clay paint, you can dilute it with water without affecting the vibrancy of the color, due to its high pigment content. Lastly, Cottage Color is self-leveling, where the chalk and clay-based formula is not. Overall, both paints are great options for giving furniture a makeover, but it is important to choose the right one based on your project needs.

Any experienced furniture painter will tell you to start your furniture painting project with proper preparation. Before you begin, you'll need to make sure the surface is clean, dry and free of any dirt, oils or chipping paint. In some cases, you may also need to prime the surface with a product like DIY Salvation Solution to prevent bleed-through. Once you've applied the first coat of paint, lightly sand the surface before applying the second coat. In most cases, two coats will be sufficient. However, depending on the original color of your project surface, a third coat may be necessary to achieve full coverage. By taking the time to prepare your surface properly, you'll ensure a smooth, professional-looking finish.

Applying paint to furniture is one of the quickest and easiest ways to transform the look of a room. However, it is important to take the time to do it properly in order to achieve a professional finish. It is essential that you allow each coat of DIY Cottage Color Paint to dry fully before applying the next. The first coat should be given about 12 hours to dry, while the second coat should only need about an hour to become touch-dry. If more than two coats are necessary, subsequent coats can be applied at shorter intervals provided that the previous coat is completely dry. Light sanding between coats of paint using a fine-grit paper will create a smooth, flawless finish. By taking the time to prepare the surface and apply the paint correctly, you will be rewarded with a beautiful and long-lasting result.
