Paint Sprayer, Refurbishment, Kristina's Table
This morning we picked up an entertainment center and dining table for refurbishment from a family in Kailua. We're going to repaint the entertainment center gray and restain the tabletop a light gray. Gonna be cool!
With the table, we're going to use a stripping compound, sand it to 220grit, and then start the refinishing process. For the entertainment center, we'll fix a few dings and then prime and paint it. We're really enjoying our new paint sprayer! It's pretty life changing... much quicker and more professional paint job than rollers or brushes could be.
The dings on the foot are shown in the above left picture, and then a smooth sanded foot it shown on the right. The rest of the table's base is scuff sanded with 150grit paper to clean the surface and ensure that the primer sticks perfectly. The primer we use is Zinsser Cover Stain. It's an oil based primer which is great for covering up whatever is underneath and also for drying quickly. Probably 20-30 minutes after it's painted or sprayed, the primer is ready to handle. Awesome, especially in our shop where space is limited.
Thats all for now!
