Updating furniture color

This is a VERY important step especially if you are going to glaze your furniture.

You will have a hard time getting the glaze off if you don’t sand the grittiness off first.

In a moment, I'm going to show you exactly how I was able to disguise this outdated pecan finish by using a black color wash as an imitation stain! applying the color wash AFTER your main paint color has been applied), you would dip your paint brush into the diluted paint and brush it over a small section of your piece. You would continue in this same matter for another small section and repeat until the entire piece as been covered.

However, for this media console makeover, I wanted to use the black color wash as a stain to darken up the existing wood tone before I painted it with straight into your 1:1 paint/water solution and rub the cloth over your piece. I simply prefer to use a cloth because I think it tends to be less messy.

The goal is to make your surface as smooth as possible to ensure the new paint adheres well. Next, clean surfaces with soap and water or degreaser, if necessary. It also seals the surface to help smooth out blemishes, increase spray paint adhesion and improve corrosion resistance.

While priming is a critical step, research shows that consumers only use a primer 50 percent of the time.

It’s not a secret that painting furniture is the norm around here, and Krylon is my favorite spray paint, and believe me I’ve used a lot of brands. You don’t want to spend valuable time and money on a project that won’t last. Soooo, naturally she chose to add a pop of color through painting furniture.

Painting probably took the most time and labor, but I think changing the color to match the walls was a key part of making these wardrobes look less IKEA and more custom. Spray paint usually at least sticks and covers, but the paint will almost always chip off eventually without the right primer, which I didn’t know about until recently.
