Prep is the Key

Prep is the Key

To prepare furniture for painting, you should first clean it thoroughly with soap and water to remove any dirt or grime.

Then, sand the surface lightly to create a rough texture that will help the paint adhere better.

Next, apply a primer to the surface to create a smooth, even base for the paint.

Finally, apply the paint in thin, even coats, allowing each coat to dry completely before applying the next.

If you encounter any areas that are difficult to paint, you may need to use a brush or roller to apply the paint more evenly.

If you are unsure about any aspect of the process, it is always best to consult with a professional. That’s where I come in. You wouldn’t believe the amount of people that ask for a quote, then decide they will do it themselves. Then ask for advice. Then realise how much goes into painting furniture and come back and book in or after attempting themselves book in the rectify the mistakes they have made.
