Move the object(s) to be painted to a well-ventilated area and place on top of newspaper or a dust sheet. Mask off any areas of the object not to be painted. Protect the surrounding area with additional dust sheets or newspaper.
Ensure surfaces to be painted are free from wax, oil and grease. Fill any cracks and sand thoroughly, paying specific attention to any inconsistencies in the original finish or any rough areas. Always sand in the direction of the wood grain. If you’re painting over a piece of furniture with a smooth glossy finish (eg. a laminated surface) there is no need to sand this. Once any sanding has been done, wipe it down with a damp cloth to remove all the dust from the piece.
Apply a coat of Rust-Oleum Mode Primer. Allow this to dry for 12 hours.
Hold the can approximately 25cm from the surface of the object(s) and spray in a steady side to side motion, slightly overlapping with each stroke. For best results whilst spraying keep the can the same distance from the surface and keep the can in motion. Never try and cover your object with the first coat of paint. Apply 2 coats of paint allowing a minimum of 15 minutes between coats. Leave your cabinet for around 60 minutes after last coat is applied to ensure it is dry before handling it.
Always read the instructions on the back of the can.
If you make a mistake or have dripping or bubbling, don’t panic; you can correct just about any error with sandpaper. Simply wait until the paint is dry (allow around 60 minutes) and sand these back, then reapply the top coat.
