Talking Paint Colours

French Navy Paint

We had a good chat about paint colours this week, with one of our customers Carolyn, when she visited us and she was very taken with the colour that we have painted the Pine TV cabinet that we have been working on.

Carolyn has been looking for a French Navy Paint colour and she was undecided between  Frenchic Hornblower, Annie Sloan Oxford Navy and Fusion Mineral Chestler, such a line up and quite a decision!

Frenchic Hornblower is a near Navy Blue. The Frenchic navy paint is from their Lazy range and so doesn't need a top coat.

Annie Sloan Oxford Navy is a more traditional nave blue chalk paint and this would need either a top coat or wax.

Fusion Mineral Chestler, is almost Navy and is one of the new colours launched at the end of last year by Fusion Mineral Paint. This paint does not need a top coat or wax.

The blue Frenchic paint is not one that I have personally used, although Carolyn advised it is a good French Navy, and the Annie Sloan Oxford Navy is a good dark blue chalk paint. 

Carolyn told us that she particularly like the ease of use of the Fusion paint as it isn't a chalk paint it doesn't need waxing, she also liked the feel of the paint finish without needing to apply a top coat, as it is a very durable paint.

So what did Carolyn choose?

We are pleased to tell you she chose our Fusion Mineral Cheslter! and if you want to see why take a look at our TV cabinet!
