You have a baby crib that at first glance might need a little love?

Bénédicte from La Belle Commode has created for you a wonderful article about transforming your baby crib which may have been passed down in your family from generation to generation!

So, in a few easy steps, you will have superb furniture for your newborn’s bedroom made from our Colorantic products, an Eco-friendly paint that is safe to use for your little ones.







  1. First, clean the furniture with the TSP type cleaner. Sand lightly to improve the adhesion of the paint to the furniture.
  2. Then prime the furniture with Colorantic primer. In addition, alternate between the oval brush and the foam roller for application and allow to dry.
  3.  Now is the time to apply the first coat of cotton ball paint. With Colorantic paint, it dries in 30 minutes.
  4. To cover the wood, three layers will be necessary.
  5. Finally, for optimal protection, apply the matte varnish. Two coats of varnish will be required.
