Are You Preparing to Refinish Your Wooden Furniture?
Posted: Jul 30, 2018
Wooden furniture is always in trend. They are a part of almost every home. You will find something or the other made of wood in every home. These items enhance the look and feel of the ambience. But they will look good for long only when you take good care of them. With the passage, they too lose lustre and charm due to many factors. With time, they may develop scratches, dents or may fade away due to exposure to sunlight. So, you need to look after them and use good quality finishing products like Mohawk lacquer to bring back their lost shine.
Refinishing your furniture will help in restoring its look and feel. Removing the old finish can be a burdensome and messy job. The old paint and varnish can be removed in a couple of different ways, mainly by using the sanding process. Sanding is a good option for removing old paint and varnish if you use good equipment for the purpose. If you are trying to remove the paint by hand sanding or with an orbital finishing sander, you may hurt yourself or waste a lot of sandpaper. On the other hand, disk sanders can remove the finishes quickly. But, you need to be careful while using this equipment because if you sand too deeply, they will remove too much of the material. Whatever sanding equipment you are using, ensure that it does the work in the right way.
Once you have completed the sanding process, you can start with the refinishing process. You can apply the coats with the help of a good brush. Remember to test the product you are using before applying. This will help you to know whether it is the same shade you are looking for or not. Also, it makes sense to read the instructions before applying the coats. You will find the manufacturer’s instructions on the label of Mohawk wood repair kits and other wood finishing products. The instructions are a great help for those who are using wood finishing products for the first time.
