And how fab it is!

A subtle alternative to gloss (so yesterday!) it is perfect for painting:-


skirting boards,


metal piping,

door surrounds

even glass etc. and is available in the same 10 colours to complement our fabulous wall paint.

It is self-priming, hard wearing and robust and totally on trend with a beautifully smooth low sheen satin finish.

It has the qualities that you have come to expect from Frenchic with a

very low VOC content,

certified EN:71-3 (toysafe) is




non fading,

non yellowing,

quick drying with probably a one coat application being sufficient.

Coverage is up to 14m2 / litre per coat but may vary depending upon method and rate of application and porosity of surface.


Produced in a 500ml tin,  £13.95.



It’s an old doll’s house on top of a separate chest of drawers that is going to be used as a drinks cabinet in the most beautiful drawing room of my absolute most favourite Georgian pile close to Wotton-under-Edge.

Yes I know it seems criminal to paint it but that’s what the client wants and actually when you get up close and personal there are a lot of defects that can’t otherwise be rectified so that makes me feel slightly better about it.

The client wants the same antiqued and crackle glazed grey exterior as a done on a couple of previous pieces I’ve done for him and we are talking about doing the inside in yellow to match the magnificent yellow glazed walls he’s having professionally painted in the drawing room at the moment.

No pressure there then!!!

Not quite sure where the hell to start but as I have to start somewhere I think I’ll just paint the back first and take the knobs off the drawers just to ease myself into it!!!!

I’ll keep you posted.

See how it worked out
