Some of you had asked me how I repainted my old cabinet. So I made this post to explain to you what I did. An important thing to keep in mind before repainting an old wooden furniture is to NOT apply the new paint directly on top of the old paint. It won't adhere to it nicely.
The best thing to do is to strip the old paint. You can use a chemical paint remover. This will soften the paint and you can scrape it off. There is also a method called sanding.
(I didn't do the stripping part but instead I applied two coatings of primer)
After stripping the old paint, I applied white primer (have no idea what other colours are available). I gave two coatings of it. Allow at least 6 hours in between each coating.
Let the primer dry overnight. Then apply the paint.
I am not an expert in these things. I just told you what I did. You can google search for a detailed description of these procedures.
Remember the stack of cupcake cross stitch that I showed you in previous posts? It's finished and here it is...
These were done long time ago.
This one was done more recently but I didn't get it framed yet. This one was a kit from Anchor. I don't normally like kits. There is nothing challenging in it. This one was bought on an impulse.
That's it. Have a nice day.
