Salvation Solution – Stain Blocker

Ever try to paint a piece of mahogany furniture or started painting a piece only to experience horrible bleed through from wood tannins halfway into your project? Salvation Solution is a true redemption for rebel furniture. Applying this prior to painting creates an incredible barrier to block those nasty stains and tannins.

Salvation Solution comes in both clear or white. Clear is best if you’re planning to wet distress your painted piece so the original wood peeks through. There’s a lot to look at on the labels, to keep the two straight, Salvation Solution is red on the label of the Clear version. It also says Clear on the very bottom under the chair.

If you’re painting a piece pastel or white, I recommend going with the White Salvation Solution. This will not only block potential bleed through, but it will act as a first coat in coverage. Here’s what the White can looks like. Note the words Salvation Solution are in Blue and it says WHITE under the chair.

Well that’s it for this week’s new products but I have so much more to share with you!! Sit back and be inspired. This DIY post is packed full of ideas, furniture makeovers, blended color combinations and every single paint color offered by Debi’s Design Diary.   Save this blog post as I’ll continue to add more photos of layered paint combos & techniques to inspire your painted furniture  makeovers

DIY paint is the most amazing paint for painting furniture and creating fabulous blended pieces of art! It’s the all natural, NO-VOC, chalk & clay based paint everybody is raving about. This richly pigmented paint has outstanding coverage and the best bonding qualities allowing painters everywhere to skip the prep and just start painting.

You already know we carry only the finest quality products here at Shizzle and DIY is no exception.   Debi’s DIY Paint is an all natural clay based paint handcrafted in the U.S.A.  It adheres incredibly well to most surfaces without the need to strip, sand or prime so you can simply clean your piece and start painting.

When I say clean, you want to make sure you remove any grease, oil or years of Pledge build up prior to painting.  We offer an excellent all natural cleaner here at Shizzle but you can also use Vinegar, Dawn dish soap, Simple Green or Phosphorus Free TSP. 

There are rare situations where you might want to give your piece a quick, 5 minute scuff up but as I rule, I only scuff things up on very rare occasions.  If you’re ever on the fence about whether your particular piece needs it, email a picture to me or give me a call and I can help you out.

How is DIY different than other paint lines? 

DIY spreads on quickly and easily.  It’s especially magical when layering and blending several paint colors because they meld together into serious deliciousness.

Layered Colors with DIY

I not only love DIY because it’s an amazing paint, I love the entire package  because of the people within this amazing company.  Friendships here are woven deeply and there is mutual respect and support stemming from the Owner.  Debi works hard and is so incredibly supportive to each and every one of her retailers and everyone else in between.   That respect goes in all directions as I’ve never been part of such a great network of women supporting and helping other women.  I could go on and on but for now… I’d like to share the beautiful paint colors of DIY.



Bead Board – white white with gray undertones

Black Velvet is an “almost black” graphite/slate type color

Blue Iris – this seriously is the color of an iris flower or that blue in a peacock feather, very highly pigmented and fantastic for artists at all levels

Bohemian Blue – Hand’s down one of our very best sellers, this blue is absolutely stunning no mater what you later it with or how you finish it!

Bohemian Blue is currently the number one selling paint color at DIY and for good reason, just look at it!
