An old wooden table can take on new appeal with the addition of a coat of paint. This can also extend the life of your table. When using black paint, you may want to keep the shine down and go for more of a matte finish. Spray paint will allow an even coat. Proper preparation is important to achieve a pleasing finish and provide you with a lasting appreciation for your table.
Things You'll Need
- Steel wool
- Satin-finish spray paint
- Soap and water
Clean the table with basic soap and water and a sponge and sand it well. You may want to use steel wool for the last sanding to provide a smoother finish. This will help remove some imperfections and help the paint bond.
Place the table in a well-ventilated protected area.
Spray the table, covering all areas evenly. If multiple coats are desired, allow the table to dry before applying the next coat. Allow to dry before use.
