How to Strip Furniture
It is not required to strip a piece of furniture in order to paint. However, if you are wanting to stain the top, doors, or drawers, stripping may be required.
In this furniture painting workshop, I share 3 different methods of stripping furniture.
- How to use a chemical stripper
- Using citristrip instead of chemicals
- The easiest way to strip with an electric sander.
I share all the different tools that are needed for the perfect outcome and many great tips and advice to get the best stripping done in order to get a great quality stain finish.
How to Stain Furniture
The staining section of the workshop shows you how to get a beautiful stained finish. I share the best products to use and how to achieve the best finish. Stripping and staining furniture is not hard to complete, but sometimes it can seem to be complicated and hard.
If you give yourself the proper amount of time and don’t rush the process, follow my instructions, you will have a beautiful stained top or drawers to complement your furniture painting.
Learn how to Paint Furniture
Painting furniture is a great way to give an old piece a new lease on life or to add some personality to a mass-produced item. But if you’ve never done it before, the prospect of painting furniture can be daunting.
The first step is to properly prep the furniture before painting. I include a bonus video on how to make sure you have the proper foundation before beginning to paint. We also discuss all the “no-prep” paints and why it is still important to prep.
Once you’ve prepped the furniture the next step is choosing the right paint. We start with learning with chalk paint, as chalk paint is one of the easier paints to use for a beginner painter. You can apply the techniques that I teach for any type of paint and paint any type of surface.
How to Wax Furniture
You will learn how easy it is to seal and protect your painted pieces with wax and how to add dimension with shading. I also share what my favorite wax is to use. Not all waxes are created equal, some you really have to work hard to apply and buff.
As a bonus, you will receive access to our growing private Facebook community, “Paint Chat”. This private community allows you to have access to me with your painting and product questions. And find ideas and inspiration from others like you, and also share your projects with the group.
The easiest way to paint furniture is using my step-by-step video tutorials. These videos show you how and you will learn all the furniture painting tips for beginners.
