New to DIY? Fear not. Frenchic paints are ‘forgiving’ with a naturally distressed look, so mistakes made don’t matter all that much. Even slightly damaged furniture ought not be cause for concern – nothing that can’t be remedied with a quick hand sander, should you prefer.

Ideal For Conservatories and Bathrooms

Versatility accounts for a lot when considering value. Frenchic’s paints are meant for application in any space – conditions aside.

Paints by Frenchic all have incredible even coverage, making them an ideal choice for painting projects in children’s bedrooms, nurseries and playrooms – or any other space where little ones might try to ‘express themselves’ with an early mural or collage.
