TOP TEN BEST NEUTRAL PAINT COLOURS FOR FURNITURE.

TOP TEN BEST NEUTRAL PAINT COLOURS FOR FURNITURE.

As a decorative furniture painter for over 10 years, I have used a lot of paint! Before I had the shop I sold to the public and also to other retailers in my local area. Those retailers were stockists of different paints and so I had a fair bit of experience with a whole range of paint brands.

I had lots of favorites but because I used so many I knew there wasn’t a one paint fits all sorta deal and loved nothing more than experimenting, did I mention I got paid to do this? 😁

So without further ado here is my list of top 10 neutral paint colours for furniture.

 

No 10  Annie Sloan Country Grey.

No 4  Fusion Mineral Paint Little Lamb

 

TOP TEN BEST NEUTRAL PAINT COLOURS FOR FURNITURE.

Little Lamb is sneaking in on this list purely because it’s on trend and it’s our most requested colour for commission work. It’s a saturated grey that’s warm, not cool and reminds me of thunderclouds.

No 3 MMSMP Mora

TOP TEN BEST NEUTRAL PAINT COLOURS FOR FURNITURE.

 

 

Most people would not consider this a neutral but, it’s not a saturated colour and it’s not a pastel, so it’s perfect when someone wants to inject a bit of colour but don’t want it to be overpowering. It is a grey bluey green and changes depending on the light.
