Painting Rattan Furniture
Painting rattan furniture is not as tough as it is made to be. Of course, it would not be right to call it very easy either, but all that is most important is patience and time. If you have enough of these, you can do a very thorough and professional job of painting the rattan furniture which seems tough to take over. There are some simple steps you need to follow. If you do these, you will definitely emerge successful!
- Get a sponge brush instead of a normal paint brush. This will act in two great ways: it will help you paint in large swaths so saving time and also let you paint in the ornate crevices which are quite common in the rattan furniture. Get a good paint, as well as a primer if you are very careful about the paint sticking to the furniture well.
- Prepare the furniture. This means you need to fix broken parts, clean the entire furniture, and use sandpaper to scrap off unnecessary bulges. Smoothen the furniture as much as possible and dust it off completely without affecting the overall furniture.
- Apply the primer if you have chosen to get the primer applied. This is quite basic. Once done, apply the paint now. This time, pleasely apply in the larger areas like the legs, the main body etc. Do not care about the crevices and fine spots now.
- After the previous step, you can then concentrate on the small spots and crevices in the ornate furniture.
- Finally, let the paint dry.
