I first used this about 10 years ago when we were looking to refurbish our kitchen units on the cheap. A predecessor had painted the cupboard doors sunshine yellow and we had become thoroughly sick of them. I was intrigued by the product and it seemed a good way of getting a wood finish without having to replace the doors which were otherwise in good condition. The product comes in a range of wood colours and we chose a medium oak colour. The boxed kit contains two tins of paint plus two tools of which more later. After thoroughly cleaning and preparing the surfaces for painting, you apply the base coat - depending on the colour you ... Read the complete review

We moved to our flat over a year ago now, and even though the decorating was ok to live in for a while, it was pretty plain and not really to our taste. So we decided to start with the kitchen. We found this beautiful light terracotta paint and once applied on the walls, it changed my kitchen completely, and made it look really cottage-like? except that the white glossed skirting boards looked a bit too out of place. We went to B&Q and looked at the paint effects, and that?s when we found Ronseal?s paint and grain. Inside the box are four items: - the base coat, - the grain coat - a comb ...

Until recently I worked in a DIY store, where the order of the day was usually mockery of people who bought things aimed at ambitious Changing Rooms type projects with the obvious intent of comitting paint crimes on innocent pieces of furniture. However I have seen the light thanks to a chance encounter with a box of Ronseal Paint and Grain. When I moved into my new house it didnt have much furniture and being a poor student I couldnt really afford to buy any and so I gratefully accepted donations from friends and family. Some of these however were more than a little dodgy! My friend gave me a bookshelf, table and chairs that were sturdy enough but ... Read the complete review

I was looking for something a little bit different for my dining room paintwork. I decided to try Ronseal Paint And Grain. The box contains a good instruction leaflet,a tin of basecoat,a tin of graincoat and two plastic graining tools. I chose the colour Jade for something a bit unusual for a change. You start off by wiping surfaces clean with white spirits,then lightly rub down with sandpaper to provide a key and your off.Apply the base paint leave to dry for about four hours then recoat and leave to dry again. Now here comes the fun part !!! You are advised to practise the next technique,as believe me I did not find this part easy. ... Read the complete review

after stripping our hall back to natural wood we wanted wooden doors to match but couldnt afford to change all of our interior doors so I brought a box of this from B&Q. In the box you get two tins, a base coat and a grain coat along with two rubber tools for making the grain imprint. This is realy simple to use, you paint your door with the base coat untill you have an even coverage, my doors took two coats but when I decided to turn my black ash furniture to beach I needed 3 coats. Leave this to dry out for a good few hours before applying the grain coat, once you have applied the grain coat you need to run the graining tools around to make the ... Read the complete review
