Benefits of Painting a Buffet

Do you have an old buffet that was either given to you, or you found for cheap? Most of the time these old pieces of furniture are in rough shape, or they just don’t fit in with your style.

So, instead of getting rid of the buffet… and it possibly landing in the landfill, you can paint your buffet to make it match your style.

Remember, you can always remove the paint, or paint over it again. It’s much better for the environment too than letting it go to the dump.

How do you paint a buffet?

Painting a buffet can be simple and straightforward with the right supplies and techniques.

To begin, remove all hardware from the buffet. Remove the hinges from any doors as well… and mark where each hinge went. (If they aren’t put back in the right spot, doors can all of sudden not close properly.)

Then prep the surface by cleaning, sanding, and priming. After you’ve prepped the surface, paint on your choice of paint. Expect to paint on at least 2 coats of paint, more for lighter colors.

Once your paint is dry, you may need to topcoat it, depending on what paint you used. After the topcoat has dried at least overnight, you can put the hardware back on.

And that’s it! Those are the basics for painting a buffet.

Is it possible to repaint a previously painted buffet?

Yes, it is possible to repaint a previously painted buffet. In fact, repainting furniture is a common practice among DIY-ers. It allows you to update the look of your furniture without having to spend money to buy a new one.

Before repainting a previously painted buffet, it’s important to go back and properly prepare the surface for new paint. This includes cleaning, sanding, and priming the buffet so the new paint adheres properly. Skipping these steps may result in a poor finish or chipping paint.

Once the surface is prepped, you can then apply your desired paint color. It’s important to note that if you are using a lighter color over a darker one, it may require more coats of paint for full coverage.

You can also sand all the way down to the original wood and start from scratch if you prefer a completely new base for your buffet. This would also be better, especially if the old paint is chipping or peeling.

Overall, repainting a previously painted buffet is definitely possible and can be a fun and cos effective way to change up the look of your furniture. If you ever change your mind or want to update the look again, you can always repaint it once more!
