My Refinishing Processes
Painting & decoupaging are some of the final stages of refinishing furniture. There is a lot of work that goes into each piece prior to painting.
Initial cleaning – with a degreaser / disinfecting solution to remove years of grime that may not necessarily be visible. This includes the interior and all handles and hardware.
Cleaning again to remove sanding residue and any other surface contaminants.
Priming / Undercoating – depending on the type of wood being painted and the final finish that will be going on.
Painting – at least 2 sometimes more coats of paint in the final colour.
Top Coat – with a durable water based polyacrilic varnish – to give added protection. 2-3 coats on paint, at least 4 coats on decoupage.
Interior wood replenished with either orange oil, or hemp oil.
What Products Do I Use?
Paint – I mainly use high quality water based mineral paint, which is very low VOC and child safe. I provide details of the paint used in my product descriptions.
Varnish / Top Coat – I use water based varnishes in a variety of finishes. And I include the details in the product description.
If you have any questions about the products please ask.
After Care Advice
I want you to enjoy your new furniture for many years to come, so provide the following care guidance:
Your refinished painted furniture is a decorative item and should be treated with care.
It is advised to locate your item away from radiators and out of direct strong sunlight, as this may cause the paint to crack or fade.
The paint and / or top coat / varnish used are water resistant, not waterproof – clean up any spills quickly with a clean cloth.
Cleaning – remove dust with a dry soft cloth. Wipe with a damp cloth if needed. Do not use strong cleaning products, alcohol based products or silicone furniture polish – these may cause damage to the paint work.
It is recommended that you use mats / coasters and avoid spilling liquids.
