Artist Ali Kay of Positive Space is a master at murals and beautiful decorative finishes. She uses our Dead Flat Varnish over her techniques to remove undesirable variations in sheen on both wall and ceiling surfaces.
You won’t believe this great idea and project! A few years ago, Postcards from the Ridge transformed her dining room buffet into a bath vanity cabinet. Doesn’t it look wonderful? After painting and staining, she sealed the entire piece with Dead Flat Varnish and years later, one of their favorite cabinetry projects still looks amazing.
Many DIYers and artists share their Modern Masters projects with us on Instagram. The Imeeshu Blog did so with a Duncan Phyfe style dining room table that was painted with Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan and sealed with Dead Flat Varnish. She says of the varnish, “It’s amazingly smooth and holds up so well to everything.”.
Stephanie Jones of Me & Mrs. Jones is no stranger to beautiful decorative finishes and in fact, has even written a book about it, Upstyle Your Furniture. After a hand plastered technique, she used our Dead Flat Varnish to seal the range hood to give it both a matte sheen and also make the cleaning of it easy. Win-win!
Of Dead Flat Varnish, Ann of Farmhouse Blues Interiors gushes, “This stuff is awesome! It goes on very easily, gives a completely matte finish, doesn’t yellow, and leaves no brush strokes.” She used it to seal a recent china cabinet makeover that was lightened and updated with a gray Country Chic color wash first. Beautiful!
Dead Flat Varnish is water base and is available for both interior and exterior surfaces. It’s great for walls, ceilings, furniture, floors, cabinetry, decor accents and more!
