This will be a quick post, but I want to make sure I put it out on the internet for everyone to read. I’ve mentioned it before on our Instagram account, but wanted to reiterate a couple of important painting tips for you here.
The picture above is a photo of a drawer that I had just finished lightly sanding prior to painting. As a furniture refinisher, this is a step I NEVER skip! I don’t care what brand of paint you’re using, it’s always a good idea to grab a hand-held sanding sponge and lightly scuff up the surface of your furniture prior to painting. I don’t mean you need to overthink this or be intimidated. You don’t need to get out an orbital sander or a belt sander, just a hand-held sanding sponge (generally costs around $3.25) and lightly rough up the entire surface of your piece of furniture to give the surface a little grip, something for your paint to adhere to.
I realize there are paint brands on the market that say “no sanding”, “no priming” and yes, this is true. You don’t NEED to. However, as someone that’s been doing this for A LONG time, I can tell you that I’ve seen the difference in pieces of furniture that weren’t lightly sanded ahead of time and the ones that were. The ones that were stand the test of time and wear and tear much better than the ones that skipped sanding.
Let me put it to you this way: what does a manicurist do before she puts nail polish on your nails?
That’s right! She lightly buffs the surface prior to applying your nail polish. Why? Because it makes the paint more durable and helps to make it last longer! So please make sure you invest that 10-15 minutes before you paint to ensure the time you spend painting will endure!
Also, there still seems to be confusion about using the Bonding Agent in the Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint line. When you are using the Bonding Agent, you are saying “I want control over the end look”, meaning you don’t want milk paint to lift or chip off wherever it wants. You’re also saying “I want solid, opaque coverage with little or no distressing”, meaning you want more of a brand new, store bought look, rather than a farmhouse, primitive look. When using Bonding Agent, you may also be saying “The surface on this piece of furniture is laminate or high gloss, so I want to ensure the Milk Paint adheres well to this questionable surface”. These are just some of the comment scenarios for using Bonding Agent.
I want to make it clear, also, that when using Bonding Agent as an additive to your Milk Paint, the Bonding Agent should be in EVERY coat.
I hope this helps a little bit in your painting adventures. I want you to be successful in your experiences and enjoy the journey of painting and transforming furniture. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you ever have any questions!
