One step furniture paint. No stripping, no sanding, no priming. Transform your furniture or cabinetry in one step! Amy Howard At Home® One Step Paint™ is a water-based paint that adheres to most any surface. Apply paint directly to old wood finishes, concrete, iron, stone, formica, etc. It dries flat, to the chalky finish that we covet on antique pieces found at the Paris Flea Market or our favorite boutique antique shops.
