Benjamin Moore's Advance Interior Paint - Perfect for Furniture

Benjamin Moore's Advance is a hybrid paint. It is a waterborne interior alkyd that leaves a hard
finish, similar to the older product Satin Impervo we all used to love. Even though Advance was designed for professional painters, homeowners have embraced the paint. The number one feature that everyone is raving about is the paint performs like a traditional oil paint but in a waterborne formula and cleans up easily.


A few fantastic features of Advance:

  • Low VOC
  • No solvents required for clean up
  • Extended open time
  • Cures to a hard, durable finish
  • Available in unlimited colors

Advance, by far, is the best paint for painting cabinets and furniture. Keep in mind it is all about the prep!  All surfaces must be cleaned and rid of any peeling paint, dust, mildew, anything that should not be on the surface. The paint can be applied with a brush, roller, spray gun and even a spray can. Advance dries to the touch in 4-6 hours and can be recoated after 16 hours. It leaves a nice factory finish coat.

Decorating with the Chevron Design

The Chevron design in decorating has become quite popular. It has by far become my obsession! I see the design in bedding, pillows, carpeting and now we are lucky to have it in wallpaper and fabric.

To kick off the Chevron craze we now have aqua and white Chevron toss pillows in our South Weymouth store. Love these!!! Add these to an all gray decor when you need a pop of color.
 

 












The wallpaper collections Ashford Black & White, Jelly Beans and Ooh La La all have Chevron inspired wallpaper designs.


Ashford Black & White by York

Jelly Beans by Astek




















The Ronald Reddinng fabric backed vinyl wallpaper collection Ooh La La is super fun! It is filled with patterns that you would not think would be for commerical type settings because they are usually on the bland side. Not these! Very colorful and exciting designs fills this book. There are 9 Chevron wallpaper colorways all available in both 27" and 54" widths. The wallcoverings are scrubbable and are ideal for heavy traffic areas.




To view more Chevron inspired wallpaper visit Wallcoverings for Less or stop in to any one of our three stores. *The Ooh La La collection is not available for online viewing.


Athena has two new Chevron Fabrics aptly named "Ziggy", available in storm and natural. A nice burst of color goes nicely with the storm and white colorway.





















Stout's Embriodery Expressions collection has three Chevron inspired fabrics named Wolfdale. It is a multipurpose dry clean only fabric consisting of Cotton, Spun Viscose and Linen. The embroidery is 100% Rayon. It is a smaller design with a vertical repeat of 6 inches and a horizontal repeat of 2.
A great fabric for window treatments and pillows.
