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.
