In The Navy

Vintro Chalk Paint are offering something no other Chalk Paint brand do and that is a FREE sample pot with every hand-painted colour chart purchased, at just £2.50.


You may say “but surely colour charts are free?” Unfortunately, most chalk paint manufacturers have to charge a small amount for these charts, because producing them costs money. Larger, more prolific brands like Crown and Dulux can churn them out for free because the production cost, for them, is a drop in the ocean.

So. Back to our free sample pot, which is the stunning French Navy, one of Vintro’s most popular colours – not just in furniture paint but also in their Supreme Matt Emulsion for walls and ceilings.


I’ve recently sold two items done in this colour in quick succession, so I thought I’d show you how fabulous it is.

Painting with French Navy is like dressing something in a posh suit. It’s smart and sophisticated. It’s a fantastic alternative to grey or black if you want something bold but a bit different.

I found this fantastic solid wood Scandi style bench and decided to paint just the top, in French Navy. The legs looked great as they were.

French Navy Sold Wood Bench, £59

The gold handles and trim on this little 1970s cabinet look brilliant against dark blue.

French Navy Retro Cabinet, £70

This wardrobe wasn’t mine but something I was asked to paint for a friend, who was furnishing a rental property and didn’t want to spend a fortune on new stuff.


Again, what was once a pretty boring piece of furniture was transformed by the French Navy, complimenting the 70’s gold handles and simple lines.

If you fancy giving it a try and would like to order a colour chart and free 30ml sample pot, get in touch with me at Postage is £3.00 or you can pop into my shop at Chilvers Coton Craft Centre in Nuneaton, Warwickshire.
