There were a number of factors in our decision but here are the basics as well as a mini Q&A:
Q: Why use DIY paint?
A: DIY paint is specifically designed for furniture with NO NEED FOR SANDING OR PRIMING! Seriously :) This paint adheres to virtually any surface without sanding or priming before use, including laminate, metal, plastic, wood and even fabric.
Q: What's the difference between DIY paint and other brands?
A: DIY paint is a non-toxic and all-natural paint. It has properties of chalk paint and clay, which gives it the unique ability to create texture. It is made in the USA from a third generation family business. Unlike many chalk-type brands, DIY paint is made from scratch like a cake and the pigment is crushed into the formula. When paint is made this way, the result is a pigment that is 70% deeper compared to when pigment is added to a pre-made base. DIY paint is less expensive than many other comparable brands as the paint is shipped directly from the factory to the retailers. These cost savings are then passed onto our customers.
