Today paint products offer homeowners the flexibility to change the look and “feel” of a room or a houseful of rooms – walls, cabinets, furniture, accessories and trim items – simply by changing the color of a painted surface or adding paint to achieve a decorative effect.
“Woodcraft offers quality paints that can be mixed to make an unlimited palette of colors, as well as create effects such as antiquing and distressing,” product manager Kent Harpool said. “We also stock the tools and supplies needed for a successful painting experience. Plus, Woodcraft retail store employees are ready to answer questions about products, or customers can call the Woodcraft Hotline (800-535-4486) for help.”
Woodcraft introduced Black Dog Salvage Furniture Paint to its line of fine finishes in May, giving customers a product developed specifically for use with furniture that is custom-built in the Black Dog Salvage shop, as well as accessories that might once have been part of an historic structure. Using Black Dog, a pure black, and Clean Canvas, a pure white, an unlimited number of shades can be mixed using the 13 other colors with whimsical names like Caution: Dogs at Work (orange). The water-based ultra matte chalky finish interior paint is easy to use, self-leveling, low VOC and covers in one coat. It can be used on finished and unfinished surfaces like furniture, woodwork, metal, glass and more and does not require priming. The companion Black Dog Salvage Guard Dog Topcoat Paint Protector is tough enough for floors and can be used for all types of indoor projects such as cabinets, countertops, furniture, and decorative items.

Exterior Use. If an interior paint is used for exterior projects such as doors, shutters, or porches, an exterior topcoat will need to be added for protection from the elements.
