First, clean the furniture thoroughly. Make sure to wipe off any rust, dirt and grime from previous paint if applicable.
Then, sand the rusty spots or rough patches with a sanding block. After sanding, wipe away with a moistened cloth.
After that, apply primer before painting to ensure the paint will adhere to the metal surface.
Next, to eliminate any brush strokes visible on the surface, use spray bottle to smooth as you add thin coats of paint.
In addition, feel free to add any special touches! I personally added a water-based gel stain to areas that would’ve normally chipped paint over time.
Furthermore, I applied Dixie Belle’s Best Dang Wax over the wood and paint with a large wax brush in a circular motion. You can use a cotton cloth to buff the wax to a satin finish as well.
