DIY query - spray paint for wood

Post by Vinet » Tue Jun 25, 2019 6:08 am

I'm planning a possible project where I'll be taking a small item of furniture, sanding down the legs & shelves to paint, and leaving the top natural wood.

I want to try & achieve that kind of very smooth satin lacquered finish you see on some wooden furniture, and was wondering what the type of paint is called?

I've done a fair bit of spraying other bits and pieces over the years - mostly with acrylics, so I'm confident I can get a decent finish. Just need to know what primer and paint to buy.

hello Vinet,

I think that not only the kind of varnish is important, but the application method. Are you using a varnish gun?
