Furniture painting is an excellent opportunity for giving the older pieces a modern twist. The color of the paint you choose and the texture may lead to a major transformation. Doing a DIY furniture renovation project, however, isn’t the best option.
Companies like All Surface Respray specialize in the field of furniture renovation. Based on our experience, we’d like to give you an idea of why a DIY furniture restoration project may backfire.
The Quality of the Paint
If you decide to color furniture on your own, you’ll probably pick a paint variety from the store. While such products come with major claims and a lot of marketing hype, many of them don’t live up to expectations.
Companies like Kitchen respray work with commercial-grade paint varieties. Apart from being much more environmentally friendly than many of the paints available for DIY projects, the paint varieties that we work with are also incredibly tough. The quality of the coverage and the finish will reduce the risk of cracks and paint that peels off. You’ll enjoy the outcome of the furniture renovation project for years and years to come.
The Quality of the Finish
Using a brush to paint furniture is far from an optimal choice. Even if you buy the best possible brush, it will still leave some streaks and marks on the surface. These will interfere with the quality of the finish and they’ll also make the layer of paint vulnerable.
Spray painting at home could also be ineffective due to the lack of experience or having a machine that can’t guarantee sufficient coverage.
When we spray paint the furniture, you’ll get a smooth and flawless finish. This smooth finish contributes to the paint being tougher and a lot easier to maintain in optimal condition.
Doing some prep work will affect the toughness of the paint. If you don’t know how to sand and repair your furniture, you will get a mediocre outcome.
Professionals in the field will complete all of the necessary preliminary steps. This work will once again ensure the quality of the outcome. Professionals know how to create a smooth surface, enabling the much better adherence of the paint.
