STEP 1.

Move your chosen piece of furniture to a well-ventilated area and place on top of newspaper or a dust sheet.

STEP 2.

As with any painting, ensure the surfaces to be painted are clean, dry and free from loose paint, grease and contaminants.

Top Tip! Previously painted surfaces should be abraded to provide a key. Inspect the paintwork, if it is flaking or cracked, use a wire brush before sanding.

STEP 3.

Sand the metal surface to remove any rough spots.

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”100px”][vc_column_text]

STEP 4.

Wipe down the surface with a damp cloth to remove any loose dust and dry off fully before priming.

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”100px”][vc_column_text]

STEP 5. Top Tip!


Apply two coats of Surface Primer to block stains, discolourations and irregularities for a smoother, more uniform paint finish.

Top Tip! If the metal has corroded in places, apply Rust Reformer to instantly convert rusting areas to non-rusting, priming the surface for painting.

STEP 6.

Mask off any areas of the object not to be painted to make sure you get a clean, tidy finish.

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”100px”][vc_column_text]

STEP 7.

Give the spray paint a good shake to ensure it is thoroughly mixed. Using your selected colour, hold the can approximately 30cm from the surface of the furniture and spray in a steady back and forth motion, slightly overlapping with each stroke.

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”100px”][vc_column_text]

STEP 8.

Wait one hour until the first coat is dry before applying another coat to deepen and even the shade.

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”100px”][vc_column_text]

STEP 9.

Finally, leave it to dry for 12 hours and consider enhancing the durability of the piece by adding a coat of Clear Sealer to protect your handy work.
