What paint to repaint a wooden furniture
To paint a piece of wood furniture, you can use paint of any brand: just make sure it is suitable for painting wood. The information is usually inscribed on the jars with the terms “woodwork” or “furniture”. Above all, stick to the instructions for preparing the wood before painting. For a current effect, opt for matte or slightly satin paint. After two layers, protect it from the blows by adding a layer of matte clearcoat on the furniture.
The detail not to be neglected
When you revise a storage unit, there is a detail that should not be neglected because it makes all the difference. This is the choice of handles. By changing them, you change the look of your furniture and give it a new identity. As for paint colors, the choice is vast. And, if the trend is to leather handles or brass buttons, the offer opens up thousands of other possibilities.
Tables and seats, paint practical
When it comes to relooking a table, a stool or a bench for everyday use, think practical. Indeed, a tabletop or the seat of a chair is very stressed, so more fragile. Therefore, if you plan to skip the varnishing step, essential to protect these surfaces, it is better to leave them rough and paint only the legs and backs.
