The rustic charm and character of a Kitchen Table and Chairs Set make a wonderful addition to a kitchen. When painting a country table and chairs that, it is important to do it in a way that maintains the furniture’s rustic appearance.
Gently grind tables and chairs set with light sandpaper just enough to allow color to last. Not sand too hard, you don’t want to remove the dents. Dry the furniture clean from dust. Paint the bottom of the chairs first by flipping them over and applying two layers of paint, making one to two hours drying time between coats. The paint is applied in the direction of the wood’s grain. Use long strokes, and make sure the color does not create drip marks. Turn over tables and chairs and repeat for the top.
Gently sand the edges of Kitchen Table and Chairs Set in random places to sand away some of the color and expose the underside stain to retain the country, rustic charm of the furniture. Apply a topcoat. Some options are polyurethane, oils, waxes, shellac and varnish. While the chosen surface is a personal preference, a varnish product can be sprayed or brushed on furniture and will provide a long-lasting finish. Whatever the closing choice, be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions on how to apply it to the furniture. See the Resources section below for more information on closing products.
