How to Get a Professional Look When Painting Furniture
With the right tools, techniques, and materials, achieving a professional look is quite easy.
Here are some tips to help you create the perfect French Blue finish for your furniture with ease.
- Start with a clean, dry surface. Make sure to lightly sand the surface of the furniture before starting to ensure proper adhesion of the paint.
- Use a quality primer and paint. For best results, use a high-adhesion, stain blocking primer specifically designed for use on furniture and follow up with 2+ coats of furniture paint.
- Brush or spray in straight, even strokes for consistent coverage and to prevent brush marks or streaks from being visible.
- Apply a polycrylic topcoat for protection (if your paint needs it.)
- Allow your painted furniture to dry completely between coats and at least 48 hours prior to use or styling.
