How do you paint metal?

I need basic instructions on painting metal cabinets.


Answer by  rabbui (275)

To paint metal furniture, you should first make sure your surface has been cleaned. You can then prime the surface with a spray primer that you can find at a hardware store. After that, you can use a paint like Rustoleum to cover with your final color.

First you need to sand them down to remove inperfections and to provide adhesion to the metal. finish sanding wit 600 grit then primer and paint, brush roller or spray.

Firstly, it might be cheaper and much better to get them commercially 'powder coated'. Metal furniture sees a lot of wear, and used to be oven baked. Powder coating is similar, but better. In case you want to do it yourself: use two-component based paint and a foam roller.

If you want a quick and easy way to do it, try a spray paint that's made for metal. Just make sure you follow the application and safety instructions for its use.

Star by stripping and then cleaning the surface. Then apply a primer according to the directions. Follow this with your topcoat an clearcoat if desired.

Well you just paint it like anything else. First clean it really well. Next prime or seal it if using a different paint than it had previous. Then topcoat it.

You want to make sure that your metal is all clean of any rust or dirt!! Then you want to slightly sand down so the metal will hold the paint. Also i would highly recommend a paint used for cars!!
