Can you Distress Your Painted Furniture?

If you like the look of light distressing to give your piece that soft look of age, it’s easy to do. Bungalow 47 Furniture Paint can be distressed using light sandpaper or a wet-distressing technique. For wet distressing you can use a damp towel and rub along the edges (like you would sandpaper) after the paint dries. Distressing of painted pieces will look best done in areas where natural wear would occur.

Finishing Your Painted Furniture

When you are finished painting, you will want to protect your painted piece using Bungalow 47 Matte Finish. The finish will protect against scratches and water damage. I recommend this for any piece that will touched and used. However, the paint does not have to have a finish. You can also use wax if you prefer that look.

Your furniture can simply be buffed on the surface after painting to give it a nice sheen. I do this when painting a large cupboard, like an armoire with no horizontal surfaces. Simply paint your piece as desired. After that, use a clean, dry towel to buff the painted surface. The nub in the towel texture will do all the work!

Bungalow 47 Clear Primer can be used if you have a piece that has been damaged from years of abuse, or is a wood that is known to bleed. Stains and tannins are attracted to water and some stains will surface within 24 hours of painting with a water-based paint. If this happens, you can go over the stain with primer and simply touch up the area. There are always ways to success when painting your furniture.
