    Refinishing Furniture Is Easier Than You Think

    If you have an hour and some SeaPaint, you can accomplish way more than you think. Here's what you'll need. This kit is enough to do at least two nightstands.
    Be sure to use the left over product to make yourself matching decor. 

    SeaPaint is the perfect paint for distressed finishes.
    It's also the perfect paint for weathered wood finishes and patina finishes. 

    First Step. Clean the item you want to paint with a little bit of alcohol and a rag. 

    Skip sanding unless the piece is significantly damaged.

    brush on a coat of our warm gray.

    Long smooth strokes are best.

    Remember to work WITH the lines of the piece. 

    Move your brush in along the shape of the piece in smooth long strokes.



    Light Pressure. Don't Push.

    Hit it and quit it. Don't overwork the paint.

    Let this coat dry 5 minutes before brushing on Coastal Gray.


    Add a second coat if needed

    Once dry, use a Weathering Sponge to rub the painted surface, for a worn a distressed paint finish.


    Pro Tip:

    You can use a rag with a little bit of Windex to get the same look with zero dust


    Once dry, use a clean damp brush to brush on a coat or two of our clear topcoat called SeaGlass.


    Allow your painted items to dry for an hour before using them in your home
