Caromal Colours Distress Finish Samples – Want To See One? Order It Here

Having a hard time choosing which Barnworn Finish is right for your furniture piece?   Or you can’t decide between Wisteria or Parchment,  or Peppercorn or Chocolate?    Do you wish you could  just hold it up to your present kitchen cabinets before you order?

Well now you can.   I’ve had numerous request for samples – especially for the  Barnworn finish samples that layer two colors and can be distressed for all sorts of effect.   I decided to offer a Custom Sample ordering –  all samples will be created using the three inch molding like these samples here  (click here if you want the individual closeup and names)


This is how it works.    You decide what you want –  do you want to see a single color, like Parchment, or Bayberry?   Then you would order a Simple Distress Sample.   Do you want to see a multi-color finish, like those above?  Then you would order a Barnworn Distress  Sample.

Are you curious about Parchment, and how it looks with Toner on it versus Tea or Coffee Glaze?  We can work up one of those too.  You could order two Simple Distress Samples – one I could use Parchment and apply Toner, the other I could use Parchment, tape it down the center and apply Tea Glaze on one side and Coffee Glaze on the other.   Or you could just order three Simple Distress Samples and do one of each!

All samples will be mailed out using USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate Boxes at a rate of $4.80 Domestic and $10.40 Canada/Mexico.   This rate applies for up to 70 lbs so order away with one flat rate!


Rates for samples are as follows:

Simple Distress Samples  $3.00  each

Barnworn Distress Samples   $4.00 each      $3.25 ea for 25 or more

  2. Hi Patty!

    I just ordered Caromel Colors to refinish my (very) tired bathroom vanity and mirror.

    I used the PattyH coupon code and received $2 off shipping so thank you very much!

    I’m a little nervous about this project but if it turns out as great as those shown on your site, I just may go for it in my kitchen as well!

    I’ve been watching youtube videos and looking at different projects…I have to ask, is it really as easy as it looks? Also, what would be your #1 tip for making Caromel Colors look as beautiful as you make it look? Thanks so much!


    • Hi Peggy, thanks so much for using my code – what is your present tired vanity look like? If you have a camera, make sure to take before and afters –

      Thats a great idea, to start on a smaller cabinet. I think what you will find is that your kitchen will be doable, it will just be a matter of making more time!

      I think its as easy as it looks – if I ever find something that I don’t like – like if there were too many marks (brush or blops) I just sand more, if I sand too much then I just take the product out and paint over that spot.

      What would be my #1 tip? Well I have more than one LOL.

      -DONT sweat it until its done! Notice what everyone is saying – ‘It didn’t look good… I was scared…’ and then after they lightly sanded and toned? It was wonderful.
      -If you do not want a heavy country/distressed/barnworn look, then plan on applying 2 coats for coverage. UNLESS you are going over raw wood – unfiinished cabs/furniture will cover in one coat easy.
      -Work right out of the jar
      -If your product doesnt seem to be gliding nice and easy, dont be afraid to add a little water. Add about a tsp of water to the jar, and mix it into the first 2-3 inches. I only mix the top portion of the jar that I will be using. Then if it starts to get thicker and slower moving, then I’ll add more water at that point. But dont add so much water that the basecoat is dripping off your brush – thats no good.
      -Keep LOTS of rags on hand when applying the Toner – and make sure to switch out to a clean dry one so you don’t just push Toner around.

      I hope this helps! Good luck , and keep in touch – patty

  3. Love these samples! The link to the “individual closeup and names” page is not working, unfortunately. (it leads to the wp-admin login) Will you please repost the correct link? Thanks! 🙂

    • Thanks Kate on the heads up! I just fixed the link – it will take you to a post that shows samples 41-60 and the two direct links to the individual closeup and names of 1-20 and 21-40
