Full-matt end result
Riikka chose the S484 Conglomerate shade from Tikkurila Feel the Color colour card. The wall was painted with full-matt Harmony interior paint.
When you choose a Tikkurila interior paint and tint it with a shade from the Feel the Color colour card, you can be sure that the color you choose will look exactly the same in your home as it does on the color chip - in all lighting conditions.
Putting the idea into practice
Give your dining room a makeover in just a couple of hours with paint!
Wipe the wall surface before beginning. the wall is clearly dirty, clean the surface using Tikkurila Maalipesu cleaning agent following the instructions on the label. Leave to dry.
Protect the floor with suitable paper before painting. Cover moldings and sockets with masking tape. f you had to level the wall surface or if the previous paint surface is dark in color, first apply a coat of Varma primer. Choose a shade of Varma primer that is close to the shade of the new topcoat.
Stir the Harmony interior paint and pour it into a roller tray lined with a plastic bag. This makes it easy to pour any remaining paint back into the can.
Apply 2 coats of paint to the wall to achieve a full-matt finish. Harmony is recoatable within 1-2 hours of painting, so you can finish the wall in just a few hours.
