To match the vibe of your home with your personality, it’s not just the walls but interiors that need to be painted. These interiors can be furniture, some metal objects, or other surfaces like wallpapers. Painting these objects is not similar to painting walls. They need extra equipment and different procedure.
We have listed below a quick and actionable guide on how to paint wood, metal, and other internal surfaces. Take a look!
Wooden Objects Like Furniture
You might get a perfect piece of furniture but still feel something is missing from it. Do you know what that ‘something’ is? Color!
To paint your furniture (or other wooden objects like doors and kitchen cabinets), you need to:
- Clean the surface with some fairy liquid and then rinse it off
- Sand it with a sanding block
- Again clean the surface and dry it
- Paint it with a wood primer and dry it
Paint the areas with details first, like doors edges, moldings, and then inlay panels. Make sure you are stroking consistent patterns with a brush so that the paint spreads evenly on the surface.
Radiators And Other Metal Surfaces
White or silver metallic surfaces can look quite odd in contrast to your beautiful home painting. To make sure they match, paint your metallic objects. For that, you will need the following equipment:
- Some clothes to protect the floor from dropping paint
- A sponge and some detergent
- Pieces of sandpaper
- Small-sized paintbrushes
- Paint that is compatible with metal
Before actually starting the painting process, drop cloth under your metallic objects and sand it with sandpaper. The surface must be made smooth before painting. Clean the surface with a sponge dipped in mild detergent. Dry it with a clean cloth.
Follow these steps to paint your metal object:
- Apply a metal primer first. It gives a solid base for the paint to stick to the metal surface. If a metal object has gone rusty, apply anti-corrosive primer.
- Start with edges first. Paint it with a small brush.
- Paint other areas with long and sweeping strokes. These strokes should blend with the edge of your last stroke.
- If you think that you need to apply a second coat, wait a little time before the first coat dries up completely.
Painting a wallpaper becomes necessary in the cases where walls are very dry and removing the wallpaper can damage the surfaces.
Equipment that will be needed in the painting:
- Small paintbrush
- Paint roller
- Pieces of sandpaper
- Sponge, water, and detergent
- Extra pieces of clothes
How to do it in five quick and simple steps:
- Drop extra pieces of cloth on the furniture and floor to cover them up.
- Sand down the bumpy areas of your wall with sandpaper.
- Clean the surface with a sponge and mild liquid of detergent.
- Apply primer on the surface and start painting.
- Paint on the edges first with a brush, then use a roller on central areas.
