Fusion Mineral Paint - Paint it beautiful

A professional paint for the everyday DIY’er.”

Homeworks Etc believes that you deserve the best when it comes to DIY home décor products. Fusion Mineral Paint offers an acrylic, water-based paint (not chalk-like) that delivers an exceptional matte finish with a built-in top coat and is the perfect choice for the DIY projects offered at Homeworks Etc and the many décor projects you have waiting at home.

Not only is Fusion Mineral Paint a high-quality product available in practical sizes and a fantastic array of colours, but it also has a low environmental impact – specifically, this paint has zero VOCs! It is non-toxic, odourless, has no ammonia or formaldehyde, and won’t separate or harden for 7 years. And the bottom line is sweet, too – prices are fair-market reasonable.

Paint it beautiful.

Fusion is truly one-of-a-kind. The unique ‘family recipe’ has been cultivated from the bottom-up – there is no duplication on the market that compares! A unique formulation allows it to adhere to almost any surface, from wood to metal to glass – even to lacquered surfaces. Once cured, this paint is highly durable, washable, water- and stain-resistant, and has an almost zero reflectance value (most desirable for the smoothest of finishes). You can also easily work with FusionTM for distressing, another beautiful technique to complete a treasured home décor project. 

It’s a colour sensation!

Homeworks Etc. is delighted to stock, sell, and use FusionTM paints in our DIY workshops. The colours are stunning – there is a magnificent collection of over 50 hues!

These little pots of inspiration offer the full spectrum of colour, from calming neutrals to rich, deep hues. There’s the Classic Collection (Tuscan Orange, anyone?), the iridescent shimmer of Metallics (a little Champagne, perhaps?), and the favourite fairy tales-inspired Tones for Tots (who wouldn’t love a colour dubbed Little Teapot?). A custom designer palette, Penney & Co Collection, boasts sumptuous shades like Lily Pond and Park Bench.

DIY Furniture Painting - The Painted Bench

“A throne is only a bench covered in velvet.” Napoleon Bonapart

Can you visualize a wooden bench in your foyer? At the end of your bed? As a coffee table? Or maybe on your front verandah as outdoor seating or a setting for vibrant flower pots?

The versatile, multi-functional wooden bench can work for your home in so many ways.

Let us count the ways!

  • A simple bench tucked against the wall in your front foyer is a warm welcome to family and friends. It’s a quick seat to slip off (or on!) a boot, wait for slowpokes or set down a package. You can arrange footwear below and hang jackets, hats and leashes above – great ideas for space savers.

  • Take your bench to the other side of the door – outside! Your covered front porch is the perfect setting for a decorative wooden bench. Display seasonal potted flowers or pumpkins or wreaths. Take advantage of its practicality and have a sit-down while you pull off mucky boots before entering the house.

  • Positioned at the end of your bed, a rustic bench gives you a place to prop a leg while tying a shoe or pulling on tights. It’s a lovely - and practical – backdrop for a favourite blanket and pillows, and acts as a visual anchor for your bedroom.

Create a breakfast nook banquette, a pit-stop in the upstairs hallway, a dreamy window seat. With a bench in your décor cache, you’ve got so many stylish options!

A wooden bench can last a lifetime – and become a loving feature in your home. Memories of family and friends welcomed into your home and seated on your handsome throne will live on forever!

Put your creativity to work and come join us to paint your very own wooden bench!
