NEW in Store: Newton's Whitewash Stain.


Continuing in our quest to bring the DIY'ers in NZ easy and fun solutions to up cycle home decor. We have introduced in our Colour for Home range... Newton's Whitewash Stain.

Not to be confused with our Chalk Fnish paint, this is a Stain which penetrates into sanded or natural timber. It can be used on indoor and outdoor surfaces on items like pergolas, outdoor furniture, plywood, weatherboards, floorboards and indoor furniture. In fact it can be used on any timber surface but it has to be unsealed/sanded to allow the stain to penetrate in and protect the wood.

 It does not need to be sealed after application, give the stain 72 hours to cure before subjecting to daily use.

This really is whitewashing made easy. Now we can all create the Coastal, Lime wash, Bach, Beach style looks for our homes.

Made proudly in NZ

DIY made easy!
