How to refinish wood furniture
Enter our new Earlex HV5500 sprayer.
We had purchased it a few months ago but hadn’t had a reason to use it, yet. This sprayer is a high volume, low-pressure sprayer – perfect for painting a lot of large surfaces like headboards, footboards, dressers, and a vanity.
On to the repairs.
The bed rails needed to be repaired where the veneer had peeled. There also were spots that needed a little wood filler and sanding done on the vanity. (One vanity door needed a new edge piece attached to replace a splintered existing one.) A cedar bottom drawer in the dresser needed a larger finger hole drilled out because the old pull tab had long ago disappeared, and a larger one was requested.
Restoring the hardware.
Julia boiled all of the hardware and then shocked it in an ice bath to break the paint bond. She then wire-brushed clean and polished it all.
Until next time,
