For people who are not financially buoyant to change their furniture, painting your furniture over is a great way of overhauling the condition of your furniture and preserving them for an even longer time.
If you are running a low budget and can't afford to hire professional painters because of budget issues, this post is for you. It is a step-by-step guide to painting your furniture yourself.
Assemble the Necessary Tools
Some of the items required for painting are: Oil Soap, Medium Grit Sandpaper, Fine Grit Sandpaper, Primer, Tack Cloth, Paint, Paintbrush, Foam Roller, Paint Sprayer (Optional), and Topcoat. Remember that choosing the right kind of paint is a very important factor to consider.
Prepare the Furniture for Painting
First you have to clean the furniture with your wood soap and after the furniture is dry, commence sanding with the medium grit sandpaper. When the furniture is dry and free of dust, apply primer so that your paint will adhere. Applying the primer at this point is very important because without it, the paint would easily peel off within days of painting. After the primer has been applied, sand again with the fine grit sandpaper. After sanding this time, use the tack cloth to clean the dust off the surface.
Painting The Furniture
It is advisable to use a paint that has a glossier finish because flat finishes will show prints and are hard to clean, but glossy finishes are quite easy to clean if there happens to be stain prints on the furniture by the time you are done. Make sure to choose a quality paint.
After painting has been done, take the furniture to a temperate place and allow the paint to dry. Make sure to keep away from moist and rain and direct harsh sunlight.
