How to Paint a Coffee Table Antique White
Things You’ll Need:
- Wooden coffee table
- Medium-grit and fine-grit sandpapers
- White primer
- Primer sealer
- Antique white paint
- Polyurethane varnish
- Fine-grit sanding sponge
- Water-based sealant
- Start off by sanding down the surface of your coffee table with the medium-grit sandpaper. You want to remove any dirt, dust, or other debris from the surface.
- Once you’ve finished with the medium-grit sandpaper, use the finer-grit sandpaper to get a smoother finish.
- Wipe away any dust from your sanding process with a damp cloth.
- Apply a thin layer of white primer over the surface of the table. Make sure you spread evenly.
- After the primer has dried, apply a primer sealer to seal the surface of the table.
- In a well-ventilated area, paint your table antique white using a paintbrush. Make sure you cover the surface evenly.
- Allow the paint to dry completely.
- Once the paint has dried, use a fine-grit sanding sponge to lightly sand away any uneven or rough edges.
- Finish off the table by applying a coat of polyurethane varnish, which will protect the surface from scratches and scuffs.
- Apply a water-based sealant to protect the finish. This will also make the table easier to clean and care for.
Your antique white coffee table is now ready to be enjoyed in your home!
