When painting the furniture in your room update them and give them a style fresh and new. Use paint black to give the furniture old or retro modern look, or lightens dark wood with white paint. For a future redecoration, realize the chairs of the room. Allowing the paint and clear varnish to cure for five days prevents the finish from being scratched or damaged.
- Remove the bases from the seats of the dining room chairs, turning them around and using a screwdriver to remove the screws. Reserve the bases of the seats.
- Sand the furniture with 100 grit sandpaper. This is important so that the furniture is left with a glossy finish, whether you paint them like paint or varnish. Unfinished wood does not require sanding. Use a damp sponge to clean the furniture and remove dust from the sanding.
- Apply an oil based primer with a brush. It is not necessary that the layer is perfect. Let it dry completely.
- Apply a layer of semi-gloss latex paint over the primer using a clean brush. Allow the paint to dry completely, and then apply a second coat. Layers of paint should be thin and even. Let the second coat dry completely.
- Apply two coats of clear varnish with a clean brush after the paint has dried. Let the varnish dry between layers. Let the varnish cure for five days before using the table or chairs.
- Replace the seats of the chairs, putting them in place and placing the screws.
Tips & Warnings
- The white latex paint works on the oil-based primer; although bubbles will emerge if placed on oil-based paint.
