6 Mistakes People Make When Painting Kitchen Chairs

Did you ever feel frustrated when painting something and it doesn’t look perfect the way you wanted it to be? Like there are smudges in places which are not supposed to be there. Or do we just paint the wrong way. However we can still correct it if we avoid these mistakes mentioned in the article.

We have painted hundreds, perhaps thousands of chairs, and there are some very common mistakes. Whether it’s your first chair, or your 51st chair, kitchen chairs require attention to detail and a little TLC. Be sure you avoid these painting pitfalls before you start spraying.

Mistake #1: Using the Wrong Tools  

If you have the wrong equipment, you’re doomed before it even begins. Put away the cheap foam brushes and save them for another today. The best way to start out right is to have the right tools for the job. Invest in good paint brushes, rollers, or a professional sprayer.

Cheap materials are fine for small items or home décor, but these are your kitchen chairs. You’re going to look at them and use them every day, so it’s worth the time and money to start out right.

Mistake #2: Hasty Prep

Prep work is the foreplay of painting. It always makes the finished result so much better. Start with sanding. Always. No exceptions. Regardless of the primer, paint, or wood condition, start by sanding. Sand first, sand often, and sand enough. Follow with a primer. Several tutorials will say primer is not necessary, but if you want good results, don’t skip corners. Even if you’re convinced it doesn’t need it, prime it anyway.
