Here at Amy Howard at Home, we pride ourselves on creating top-notch products that are versatile, easy to use, and safe. Of course, one of our all-time best-selling products is our line of One Step Paint™. One Step Paint can transform furniture and décor with the stroke of a brush.
Your favorite pieces can be rescued and restored to a beautifully aged finish. With One Step Paint™, you can achieve that rich, chalky finish you love without sanding, priming, or stripping. This water-based, rich, and highly pigmented paint works on virtually any surface, including wood, glass, resin, melamine, Formica, concrete, iron, stone, and even outdoor furniture and décor. Water-based and free of VOCs and other toxins, this paint is even safe for baby furniture and children’s rooms.
One quart of One Step Paint™ can cover 135-140 square feet, the equivalent of your kitchen cabinets, that beautiful vanity you found at the thrift store, or a much-loved dining table. Our customers love this paint — and for good reason.
The only question is… what color do you choose? Here’s a list of our top-selling One Step Paint™ colors, including great ideas you can use to make the most of your next order.
TOP-SELLING ONE STEP PAINT™ COLORS
Our #1 One Step Paint™ color is Bauhaus Buff, without a doubt. This fresh, clean white paint gives any piece of furniture a modern, light look you’ll love. There are tons of places to apply Bauhaus Buff, from your outdoor furniture to your kitchen cabinets.
A beautiful contrast to the brightness of Bauhaus Buff, our Black One Step Paint™ is another big seller. DIYers love using the black paint to create chalkboard surfaces, to add depth to pieces, and to make a statement with their refinishing technique. You can use Black One Step Paint™ for countless projects, including painting your floors.
Vintage Affliction is a deep green-blue paint that lends an Old World look to even the most modern pieces. Our customers love this paint for aging surfaces, and even layer it with our Cracked Patina. Of course, it can be used all by itself, too, for a gorgeous color on cabinets, side tables, and even for malachite finishes.
Crisp, clean, classic — just like the name suggests. Our Linen One Step Paint™ gives a beautiful, neutral base or full coat to your furniture, accents, and even cabinetry. We’ve even used it as an accent color for lettering on a one-of-a-kind dog bed.
This light gray-blue One Step Paint™ is one of our personal favorites. Vintage French style is so fun to emulate, and this French Blue paint makes it possible. You can use this light blue-gray on cabinets, on chairs, on furniture, and more. Combine the French Blue paint with gold leaf on a chest of drawers for a Parisian pop — you’ll just love it.
Atelier One Step Paint™ is a rich color that is anything but boring. This gray-brown paint is perfect for rescuing and restoring antique side tables, décor, and even pillows or fabrics. It offers gorgeous depth and can be combined with other colors to create a piece that is truly unique.
A Good Man is Hard to Find (but keep looking)
A Good Man is Hard to Find is a customer favorite — and not just because of the great name. This deep gray paint is just gorgeous on woods, fabrics, and a variety of other surfaces, and it’s perfect for creating that lovely chalkboard look we all love. Mix a Good Man is Hard to Find with our French Blue One Step Paint™ to create a beautiful chalkboard dresser, perfect for kids and grandkids alike.
This very light gray is the perfect way to add brightness to your rescued piece. Whether you’re refinishing a chair and its cushions, sprucing up your coffee table, or painting picture frames, Luxe Grey One Step Paint™ is as modern as it is versatile. The best part? You can use it to add age and depth to pieces alongside Cracked Patina.
