My objection to BIN primer is the horrible smell that seems to linger for days in whichever house you’ve used it in. I paint in an enclosed patio so it’s simply not a viable option. Try utilizing sandpaper and a little elbow grease for this job. I actually have run into and issue and was questioning whether or not you can assist. Having learn around about with the ability to paint ikea furniture i went and purchased some wall items that i wished to be the identical colour as the wall. I used the suggested B-I-N primer, however it hasn’t adhered to the floor.
Sand the table first to rough up the end – a hand sanding block with a hundred grit sandpaper will do the job. Then two thin coats of black chalk paint after which 2 mild coats of poly. If you need to use black stain, you’ll need to do the same and much more if there’s plenty of poly on the piece. I suppose your best bet could be to sand the floor so it it clean after which use primer, then paint or chalk paint. You talked about the piece has plenty of poly on it. If that is so, when painted over…you may even see all the imperfections in the stage of the poly.
I would sand it, to not the bare wooden, however enough to clean the floor down, then paint. Hi Colette – I stained the tables a few years in the past and I am unsure if Minwax nonetheless makes the identical formulation stain I used. Companies seem to vary their merchandise and this was one of them. If you go to Lowes or Home Depot you will notice what they sell now within the stain/poly line and the colors obtainable. If you utilize black, the knots will mix in, however you will nonetheless see where they are since they’ve a special texture. If you utilize a primer, you might even see white or a lighter area underneath the stain. Hi Susan – When staining it is exhausting to find a dustless area for drying.
Any recommendations about what I may need done wrong and what I ought to do to make it look better? I would appreciate any help you can give me. Hi Stephanie – To smooth out the scratch, just run a hand sanding block with medium grit -100 grit sandpaper over the floor. Once it’s clean – continue to tough up the rest of the floor so the paint has one thing to stick to. If the fork marks are very deep, you’ll be able to fill them with wooden filler putty first. It is bought in the paint and stain aisle. Put the putty within the marks, let dry and then sand smooth then sand the rest of the desk before staining.
