We don’t even realise how our furniture has become an integral part of our lives. The relaxed face when you fall on your sofa after work or the dining table where the entire family sits and enjoys food. It has so many memories attached to it. So why take it for granted? Why not care for it?

One of the best ways to protect your furniture is by using wood coating paint. But simply painting your furniture would not do the magic. Here are a few tips for you to be a pro while coating your wooden furniture.


Tips for wood coating

Properly coating the wooden furniture can work wonders for you. No matter how old the furniture is, it will always seem to be new and shining. This defensive shield not only protects the wood but also enhances its existing patterns. But the result always depends on how dedicatedly the wood coating has been done.


Prepare the coating surface

Gently sand-off the surface that you want to coat. Make sure it is smooth and even for a splendid, effortless experience. Once the surface is smoothened, take a thinner-soaked lint-free fabric and to get rid of the unwanted particles. Make sure you give at least three to four hours for the wood coating to dry. Once the wooden surface evenly soaks it, go for another coat. For a flawless, smoother experience use sandpaper between the layers.


Note: In case your furniture is exposed to moisture, don’t forget to apply a little primer along with thinner, during the process.

Best way to repaint

Are you planning to repaint your furniture? Well then, get ready to evaluate the paint condition of the surface first. If the paint is already peeling off, make sure you scrape it off before starting to repaint. The best way to get rid of the old paint is by using sandpaper. This move not only smoothens the surface evenly but also creates a clutched surface for better wood coating experience. Once this step is complete, your furniture is ready for the wood coating process. Gently apply the coating and leave it to dry, as discussed previously. Apply more coats for a glossy finish.


Sanding in between coats

The reason why you are asked to use sandpaper between applying coats is that smooth surface absorbs paint evenly and gives a sophisticated and classy look to your furniture. For better sanding experience, use coarse gravel sandpaper for a medium grit followed by fine-grit sandpaper. To avoid damaging your surface, make sure you sand in the direction of the grains and then apply the wood coating paint.
