Preparation:

Remove drawer fronts and cupboard doors. Remove all hardware from the doors and drawers.
• Fill any holes or cracks with the appropriate filler and allow to cure as per instructions.
• Sand surfaces smooth to remove old paint and sharp edges and to smooth fillers. Always sand along the grain of the timber. (NB: sanding dust from all surface types can be harmful. Use dust masks, gloves and coveralls to protect yourself and your clothing).
• Thoroughly wash and degrease surfaces using sugar soap. Allow to dry completely before painting.
• Rinse rollers and brushes in solvent or water, dependent on the paint type. Allow to dry before use.
• Immediately before painting use a tack cloth or pocket duster to remove excess dust and fine particles.

Application
• Speak to your paint specialist about applying a base coat, primer or rust resistant application. Priming is especially important on surfaces that have never been painted.
• For the best brush finish apply paint, varnish or stain from side to side in smooth strokes. Start at the top and work your way down. This allows drips to be painted over. Concentrate on one area at a time. Finish strokes off by gently going over with a mini roller. This will remove any ridges that may form. Paint applied too liberally will run.
• Repeat this process for each coat. The number of coats required will depend on the paint, surface and application method used. Follow instructions on the paint can regarding drying times.
• If desired varnish can be applied as a final coat for a clear finish.
