We have two paint finishes that are ideally suited to painting furniture:
Earthborn Eco Chic is based on our Claypaint formulation and designed for use on furniture. It has a luxuriously thick, creamy consistency and can be applied in a variety of creative ways; layered, sanded, as a colour wash… the options are limitless! Eco Chic is best finished with our clear Furniture Wax or Furniture Glaze for added protection.
Earthborn Eggshell No.17 is a water-based yet highly durable paint that dries to a subtle sheen, perfect for paint projects requiring a smooth, consistent finish.
Don’t forget to use a face mask and take care if dry sanding!
As with any DIY project, take care when preparing surfaces and applying paint. Work outside, or in a well ventilated area and wear a suitable face covering especially when dry sanding. Furniture should be checked to ensure it is in sound, solid condition. If your furniture has existing paint work, gloss or varnish, then we recommend lightly sanding first to provide a ‘key’ and help the new paint to stick. If painting onto bare wood, ensure it has a smooth surface – again, lightly sand if needed. After sanding carefully wipe away any residue and you are ready for priming and painting.

Earthborn Eco Chic and Earthborn Eggshell No.17 are ideal for updating wooden kitchen cupboards. The glossier the surface you’re painting, the more difficult it will be for the paint to stick. So if your cupboards are plastic, melamine or wood effect, you should sand well to provide a key and test an inconspicuous area first to see how the paint takes.
Eco Chic and Eggshell No.17 are primarily designed for painting wood, so you may need to use a specialist cupboard primer to help the paint to stick to non-wooden surfaces, we recommend our Multi Purpose Primer and bear in mind the paint might not be as durable as other specialist products.
