You can paint almost any surface without sanding or striping your piece.
You will need to sand any chipped paint or vanish but generally wipe or dust your piece and painting you go!
Two coats of paint are mostly required but depends on the look you are after. There are no hard and fast rules to this.
Once paint is dry you can sand some off to make it look old. Once you have created your desired look you now can wax.
To wax you need a lint free cloth (I use an old pillow case or sheet). Rub wax all over your painted furniture, it should be sticky to touch, Leave wax for about 1-2 hours, then with another lint free cloth buff to get any excess wax off and give your piece a slight shine.
Leave your piece over night for the wax to set properly.
These are the basic instructions to get your started.
We are happy to help you create the look you are after so please email or ring with your questions.
