Black Dog Salvage Furniture Paint Celebrates Anniversary

Comments (0)

One year ago, Black Dog Salvage Furniture Paint was a new kid on the block. 365 days later, the paint has proven itself over and over as a go-to project supply for upcyclers, furniture refinishers and DIYers. 

The product line has expanded with new brushes, recipe cards for mixing more colors, and other items we can’t discuss yet on the horizon. Plus, there are now dedicated social media sites for sharing tips and projects.

Woodcraft and Black Dog Salvage worked hard for a year prior to launching the paint to get the formulation and colors to meet specific criteria. The response has been overwhelmingly positive.

“I love the paint,” Liz Matheny, Woodcraft marketing director said. “I am an impatient person and the fact I can skip all that prep (stripping, sanding, etc.) with the exception of wiping down the piece with some TSP — I’m good to go!” Liz has used the paint for several projects in her home and on a variety of substrates — fabric, wood, plaster, over an old finish, and on raw wood.

The folks at Black Dog Salvage have also seen great feedback in the year that they have offered it in their salvage store in Roanoke, Virginia, according to Susan “Swooz” Hudson, Black Dog’s artist extraordinaire. Swooz was instrumental in the development of the paint because of her work in salvaged materials and the need for a product to adhere to many different surfaces.

In fact, Swooz said a woman who recently visited the Black Dog store made her day by saying, “I just want to tell you that I LOVE this paint. I have used everything on the market, made my own, etc...and nothing compares to your paint. I have thrown out all the others and now only use yours.”
