1. Prepare wood furniture for painting

Select a well-ventilated place and use cloth or plastic sheets to place furniture over it. Clean the furniture and fill the scratched areas with wood filler. Wipe off excessive stuffing with a filler knife. Use wood filler in joints for a secure attachment. When wood filler is dried, use sandpaper to smooth the surfaces, preparing it for paint. Clean the furniture thoroughly with a wet cloth and then with a lint-free cloth.

2. Prime

Without primer, the paint may peel off after a few months, so use a primer before painting. When the primer is dried, sand the surface again with fine grit sandpaper and then clean the sawdust.

You can choose a bright paint color or combine two or three paints to create a pattern in contrasting colors. You can add geometric shapes, design zigzags, or paint your wood furniture pieces solid colors and decorate them with original knobs. There are no limits to creativity.

4. Paint

When you decide on the design, you are ready for applying the paint. Use a foam roller on flat surfaces and then a paintbrush on uneven surfaces. Use paint conditioner to slow down the drying edge of the fresh coat. It helps to make the paint coat even. Apply a second coat of paint if necessary and let it dry.
