How do I paint furniture a cherry color?


Answer by  Malinovsky (71)

If the wood is bare, then you should "stain" the wood with a cherry colored stain. If it is already painted, then you can choose a cherry-colored paint to go on top, or you can strip off the existing paint and try staining.

I agree with your comments, but it should be noted that stripping off paint can be a time-consuming task. Staining already-bare wood is relatively easy as is painting a piece of furniture. You just have to make sure that you prepare the surface well.  add a comment

First, you're going to need to know some basic painting skills. I assume the furniture is wood. If it is already treated i. e. is glossy or a color that wood would normally not be, you will need regular paint. If not treated, a cherry color stain is probably the best choice.

Even cherry wood isn't what you might consider to be a cherry color, it's largely an effect of paint. I would first use a dark striping, then apply glazes to create depth.

The furniture has to be sanded first to remove the smoothness,shine and other contaminants. Thereafter a primer is to be applied and allowed to dry. This should be followed by Paint Finish stained to cherry color

Sanding increases the smoothness, it does not "remove" the smoothness. Unless you mean that the person should scuff up any existing paint so that the next layer will adhere better?  add a comment
