Date of review, May 2018
The best part is that the paint didn’t smell horrible and dried super-quick so my son was able to sleep in his room that same night
I chose Nora for my son’s bedroom and Leo for the playroom. Goodbye dull boring rooms, hello colour pops! The house feels brighter and much more fun – we’re delighted with the result. I was amazed at the ease that the paint went on and the flawless finish achieved - but the best part is that the paint didn’t smell horrible during or after application and dried super-quick so my son was able to sleep in his room that same night.

Ensure adequate ventilation. Before painting ensure the surface is clean, dry and free from grease, dirt, dust and other contaminants. Remove any old or flaking paint until the surfaceis sound.
Stir thoroughly to ensure the paint is completely mixed. Apply 2 coats with a brush or roller, leave the first coat to dry for a minimum of 2 hours before applying the second coat. Do not apply in very damp conditions or extreme temperature. Seal absorbent surfaces with this product thinned with 10% water. If the surface is very absorbent use a proprietary sealer.
Remove excess paint from the brush or roller on the rim of the paint tin and then wash it with water. Store the paint with the lid firmly attached at room temperature in a well ventilated place.
- As both natural and artificial light in a room can impact and have a bearing on the final colour of Painthouse colours, we strongly advise you order a tester tube, or Painthouse Pal to check the colour is satisfactory and as expected.
- If the colour change is significant, please be advised that it may be necessary to apply more than 2 coats of Painthouse.
- When applying onto bare wood, the paint can sometimes be applied without a primer however, before full application is attempted apply to a small area to check compatibility. If experiencing adhesion or staining issues, a proprietary wood primer, knot sealer or stain blocker should be used.
- When applying on to previously painted surfaces, particularly gloss and mid-sheen paints ensure you:
- Clean the surface to remove any grease, dirt or dust
- Abrade the surface completely with sandpaper (e.g. 150grit)
- Apply a proprietary tie coat to give good adhesion and then paint.
- Please note, Painthouse colours are for indoor/internal use only.
