What have you painted today? Featuring Navajo White!

Color Blog featuring Navajo White!

While we love color and many of you do too, we also love the elegance and purity of white.  Neutral colors, including our 4 shades of white will always be popular, and its easy to fall in love with them!

Navajo White is a lovely soft true white, and it’s a standard for beauty, as well as it is versatile and can be added to other paint colors to change the gradation or tint of a color.

You can use our Clear and Dark Wax, Top Coat or Hard Coat, to finish Navajo White and you can depend on it being a true soft white today and always!

Here are a few examples from our retailers of painted furniture using Navajo White.
