I’ve been wanting to do this for a while.
I was looking for a paint with a proven track record on wood, and after trying the samples from Frenchic Paint’s Trim range, I knew this was the one.
Frenchic Paint was founded in 2014 by Pam Gruhn, and is now one of the fastest growing chalk Paint companies in the U.K.
I have picked two colours Bon Bon (pink) and Ducky ( duck egg blue). Behind my Frenchic ‘Ducky’ blue painted door is my son’s bedroom. As you can see he really loves blue. The paint went on like a dream.
It’s a subtle satin paint with a robust finish. It really looks amazing, just like a brand new door. This door had been painted for a few weeks now, therefore I’m sure many of you with kids will know that seeing scuff marks would not be unusual..
However, as you can see in the photo, the door still looks in perfect condition. Frenchic Trim paint is as it says “providing an extremely high scuff resistance”. This is the door that leads to my workspace, and it is adjacent to my son’s room.
The 2 males in my family have been more that patient with my pink transformations all over the house, so I thought it would only be fair to let them have some say in the front door colour. This is the door that leads into my special pink room, hence the perfect door for Frenchic’s Bon Bon pink. Frenchic’s Trim paint can be used directly onto wood ( bare or painted), brick, stone, plaster or any suitably primed rigid surface. I’ve recently painted my doors white, so without a huge amount of prep, apart from masking tape, I was able to apply the paint directly onto the door. It’s a gorgeous pinky tone, therefore perfect for my room. Frenchic paint is fast drying, odourless and is certified child safe. There are no VOC’s, toxins or solvents.
Above all, it has the EN71:3* certification which means that it is even safe to use on children’s toys. Finally, if you are feeling the upcycling bug, then maybe you should try some Frenchic paints. I highly recommend it.
Do keep an eye on my Instagram next week, as there will be a giveaway of Frenchic paints.
Hope you’ve enjoyed the post.
Wishing you all a wonderful start to your weeks.
