|Hutch After Styling|
UPDATE: For those of you who requested more information on the painting process, here you are!
1) The hutch was first sanded to remove the existing finish.
2) Then it was primed. One coat with the sprayer. My dad used an oil-based primer and tinted it with black oil-based paint. (He wasn't sure how much black he added. Just dump some in.)
3) The piece was given a bit more sanding.
4) Then a single coat of Rustoleum oil-based satin black paint. About 10-15% paint thinner should be added to work with your sprayer.
That's it! My dad has a Graco HVLP sprayer with a "3 stage turbine." He thinks he used the "#4 nozzle." His biggest piece of advice - use a good sprayer. His model costs about $500 or $600.
Hope that helps! I sure am lucky to be able to outsource painting jobs like this. If you're handy and crafty, I'm sure you can do it yourself. But you can also hire painters to do the job, too.
