"So let me tell you about getting chickens to pose for a photo shoot. They don’t 😂😂. But they are cute anyways.”

We decided to paint these chairs Vintage Mint from our new Cottage Color line. We have been working so hard on the yard at the church and we need some cute chairs to rest in. I’m planning on upcycling a cute table to put between them.  The neighbors keep asking if we’re going to live at the church because we’re working so hard on the yard.  Although we won’t be living here, we want the church/shop to have pretty grounds where our associates can take a break and customers can feel inspired. I can’t wait to have a company BBQ on the back patio. Because we aren’t just coworkers, we’re family and I hope all our customers feel at home when they come to visit. ❤️

How To Use Cottage Color One Step Paint

DIY Cottage Color One Step Paint can give your furniture an exciting new look with a built in sealer! Watch this video to get step by step instructions while Jami paints two chairs with Cottage Colors:


Make sure the surface is clean, dry and free of grease and penetrating substances. Remove loose coats of old paint or lacquer first. If necessary, prime bleeding wood with DIY Salvation Solution. Paint with Cottage Color paint over new surfaces (wood) and existing firm coats of old paint, lightly sand in between coats. Only when a strong color difference exists (generally from very dark to very light) spot priming or a third coat may be required. Can be diluted with water (max. 10%)

Drying time

Leave first coat to dry for approx. 12 hours before sanding; the second coat will be touch dry after about 1 hour, depending on the temperature.


One pint of Cottage Color will cover approximately 20-24 m². Make sure to minimize waste by carefully calculating the paint you need for your project and putting it in a separate container, so your brush does not contaminate the paint as it is VOC and solvent free. 

Storage / Shelf life

Store Cottage Color containers tightly sealed in a cool but frost-free place. Shelf life: 1 year, when unopened and not contaminated by the brush. Keep unused paint for later use; avoiding waste effectively may minimize the environmental impact of the product.
