Wood Painting Tips for Sprucing Up Your Furniture

Using wood paint to give your furniture a new look is easier than you think with the right tools and the right paint. Here are Island Premium Paints’ Para Sure Tips on how to use wood paint to your full advantage.

How to Use Wood Paint on Furniture

No need to be intimidated on using wood paint on your furniture. Read on for some easy-to-follow tips!

  • Know the Wood Surface: Different wood types react differently to various paint types. Make sure that your paint is formulated for wooden surfaces before taking your paint brush to your furniture.
  • Sand Down Furniture: whether it’s finished or unfinished wood, it is best to sand down the furniture piece you are going to work on before using any kind of wood paint. Sanding helps the wood absorb the paint better, making sure that the paint adheres to the surface.
  • Prime the Surface: to prevent stains from bleeding through the new wood paint, it is best to use a primer on your furniture. Be sure to match the primer with the type of paint you’re using. Don’t forget to sand away the extra primer you are using.
  • Wipe Down Furniture: removing dust and grit from the surface of the wooden furniture with a tack cloth helps make the painting job easier. It also reduces the need of painting over the furniture with unnecessary layers because of dust specks.
