In this blog post, we will show you how to paint furniture without sanding using Granny B’s Old Fashioned Paint, and share some tips and tricks to achieve a beautiful result. Let’s get started!
Step 1: Choose Your Color and Finish
Granny B’s Old Fashioned Paint offers over 60 old-fashioned inspired colors, 3 chalk-based metallic colors, and 9 real-metal metallic paints called Liquid Metal. You can choose the color and finish that suits your style and the piece of furniture you want to paint. You can also mix and match different colors to create your own custom shade.
If you want a matte finish, you can use the paint as it is. If you want a more glossy or durable finish, you can apply a sealer or wax, over the paint.
Granny B’s Old Fashioned Paint also offers a variety of sealers, waxes, and glazes to enhance and protect your painted furniture.
Step 2: Clean Your Furniture
Before you paint your furniture, you need to clean it thoroughly to remove any dirt, dust, grease, or wax that might prevent the paint from adhering properly. You can use a mild soap and water solution, a degreaser, or lacquer thinners to wipe down your furniture with a cloth or sponge. Make sure to rinse off any residue and let the furniture dry completely.
Step 3: Paint Your Furniture
Now comes the fun part: painting your furniture. You can use a brush, roller, or spray gun to apply Granny B’s Old Fashioned Paint to your furniture. Depending on the color and the coverage you want, you may need two or theee coats of paint. Let the paint dry between coats, and follow the instructions on the label for the drying time.
If you want to create some texture or distressing effects, you can use a damp cloth, sandpaper, or a scraper to remove some of the paint while it is still wet or after it has dried. This will give your furniture a more rustic or vintage look.
Step 4: Seal Your Furniture
If you are happy with the look of your painted furniture, you can skip this step. However, if you want to add some extra protection, shine, or depth to your furniture, you can apply a sealer or wax over the paint. These products will help to seal the paint, prevent scratches, stains, or water damage, and enhance the color and finish of your furniture.
Granny B’s Old Fashioned Paint offers a range of sealers, waxes, and glazes that are easy to use and compatible with their paint. You can choose the product that suits your preference and the effect you want to achieve. For example, you can use a clear sealer for a simple and durable finish, a dark wax for an antique look, or a pearl sealer for a shimmering touch.
To apply a sealer or wax, you can use a brush, cloth, or sponge, and follow the instructions on the label for the application and drying time. Make sure to buff the surface with a clean cloth after applying the product to remove any excess and create a smooth and even finish.
