You will only need to sand the surface if:
- The surface is dented, scratched and marked and you want a very smooth finish.
- Paint or varnish is flaking (sand those areas smooth).
- You are painting old shiny Formica (scuff with sandpaper first).
HOW TO PAINT YOUR FURNITURE STEP-BY-STEP
To prepare and paint your pieces in Upcycled & Co. Furniture Paint, simply:
1. Rub the piece all over with a medium grade Scotchbrite pad ensuring any grime is completely removed (you may need to sand some of this) and any shine softened.
2. Repair, fill and sand any lumps or bumps if you want to.
3. Clean your entire piece well all over with a degreaser and wax remover (like Diggers Degreaser and Wax Remover available at Bunnings). This is to ensure any furniture polish, wax, oil, grime or dirt (including fly dirt) that could be on your piece is removed completely.
4. Apply one very sparse coat of paint all over your piece. You should be able to see through this coat easily. Let this coat dry.
5. Now apply coats to cover. Water paint down a little if you're getting brush marks.
6. Sand out any imperfections between coats with 240 grit sandpaper.
7. Water your paint down by about 10% for your final coat or for any coats if your paint is thick. This will give you a smoother finish without brush marks.
IMPORTANT: Sand our any imperfections between coats. Water your paint down to ensure a smooth finish without brush marks. Always leave your piece for 7 days to cure (for the paint to fully harden) or 10 days in the cooler months before using it or putting anything on the surface. Keeping it in a room with a heater on low for 24-48 hours will help with this process in the winter months or equally, in a sunny room in the warmer months.

The colours on our online chart are as close as possible to the actuals. You may need to sand a surface if you have flaking paint or varnish or if the surface is particularly dented and marked and you want a smooth finish. Sometimes shiny surfaces can benefit from a quick scuff with sandpaper, however the way you apply the paint to these surfaces is usually the key.
