Frequently asked questions about furniture paint
  1. How to paint furniture?

    Preparation is key; First, prepare your piece of furniture by giving it a good clean and removing all the dust.

    Sand your furniture; Next, use the medium-grit sandpaper to sand your furniture. Be careful not to groove the surface though as you may end up stripping the surface.

    Prime; After your furniture is dry and dust-free, paint it using some primer. This helps your paint adhere to the furniture better.

    Sand again: Sand your furniture again using a fine-grit sandpaper. This helps you attain a much more professional and even finish. Make sure to use a tack cloth to remove the dust.

    Paint: Finally, start painting your furniture. You can either use a paint sprayer or a regular spray paint, a brush, or roller. It is advised to use a small foam roller on the main parts of the furniture and a brush in the hard to reach crevices.

    Protect: Leave your last coat of paint to dry for at least 24 hours, before sealing it. This will provide extra protection for your furniture. Use a water-based topcoat as it’s easy to clean up and there aren’t as many fumes.

  2. How to paint wooden furniture?

    Preparing the Furniture

    Remove any necessary hardware from the furniture to evenly paint the whole surface.

    Fill any holes or chipped surfaces with wood filler.

    Sand the surface of the furniture to remove any existing varnish or lacquer, making it easier for the primer coat to adhere.

    Remove any dust or dirt left after sanding the furniture surface by using a tack cloth.


    Brush or spray on a smooth coat of primer and allow the primer to dry before moving on to the next step.

    Use a fine-grit sandpaper to sand the primed surface after it has dried. This will help your paint adhere to the primer even better.


    Start painting the wooden furniture with a thin layer of latex or other indoor paint. Use a foam roller for any even surfaces. Remember to apply several light coats rather than a single heavy one.

    Wait for the first coat of paint to dry (at least 6 hours), and then apply a second coat.

    Sand between coats of paint after each one has dried. Make sure to wipe away any dust using a tack cloth.

    Once the paint is dry, apply a clear finish to protect the paint from nicks and scratches. It is advised to use a water based polyurethane as it will work well in most cases.

    Add new hardware or replace the old.

    Let the furniture dry for a few days and your new wooden furniture should be ready to use.

  3. What kind of paint to use on wood furniture?

    There are many types of paint you can use on a wooden furniture, it all depends on the finished look you want to achieve.

    For example, you can choose chalk or milk latex paints to create distressed furniture. Milk latex paint in particular can be great for creating a weathered look for dressers, sideboards and headboards as it distresses easily through paint cracks. Chalk paint on the other hand, doesn’t distress as easily, so it may work great on items such as tables and wooden coat racks. Because chalk paint is tougher to flake, you’ll have more control over the amount of distressing on these pieces.

    If you want your furniture to have a smoother finish, use oil-based paint. This can be great for items like wooden chairs, tables, and other frequently used household furnishings. The advantage of using oil paints is that they dry quickly, so you won’t lose much time without your daily furniture.

  4. How to paint garden furniture?

    Follow the below steps to paint a garden furniture:

    Scrape off all large pieces of existing paint.

    Smooth all surfaces using a sandpaper as it will help your paint adhere to the surface.

    Wipe any dust from furniture using a tack cloth.

    Apply one coat of exterior primer to the furniture using a brush. Use strokes in the same direction as the wood grain. Wait for it to dry before moving on to the next step.

    Apply one coat of exterior paint with a brush and allow your furniture to dry. Apply additional coats if needed and allow the furniture to dry completely before using it.
