How to Paint a Wood Kitchen Chair
If you have a wood kitchen chair that has sustained some abuse, which you would like a different paint color, use the information below to paint your chair.
Step 1 – Choose the Right Color and the Right Paint
Begin by choosing paint in the color of your choice, but also choose a paint that will cover well. Latex based paint, for example, covers well, dries quickly, and is easy to clean. If you want a more durable finish, then choose an oil-based paint.
Step 2 – Sand Your Chair
Sand you kitchen chair thoroughly before applying paint. Once it is sanded, make sure you wipe off all dust residue before applying paint or primer.
Step 3 – Apply Primer
Apply a primer or 2 coats of paint. Use a brush size of about one to one and a half inches to paint the chair back and legs. For flatter surfaces, use a mini- roller.
Step 4 – Allow the First Paint Coat to Dry
If you are using two paint coats, rather than a primer and one coat, paint one coat and allow it to dry. Then, apply the second coat.
