The new finishes were created specifically for DIYers who want to beautify and contemporize home décor with new on-trend looks. The Design Series finishes include:

  • Wood Effects replicates the appearance of aged wood in one easy step creating a rustic, vintage look. Available in Charred Look (Black) and Weathered Look (Gray).
  • Color Washes creates a rustic, distressed look, while adding color and letting the wood grain still shine. Available in White Wash, Barnwood Brown and Weathered Gray
  • Soft Touch Finishing Wax is a clear wax that leaves a velvet-soft feel and matte finish to wood surfaces and protects bare or stained wood and painted surfaces without altering color.
  • Grain Highlighting Wax is designed to draw out the detail and character of wood grain while providing a distressed look.

“The Design Series line allows you to breathe new life into outdated, well-worn or existing furniture,” says Sue Kim, Minwax Senior Color & Designer Expert. “This year designers are really emphasizing the charm and character of wood grain. Our new Grain Highlighting Wax will achieve those coveted high- end looks for much less.”
