Selecting the right paint finish is essential when painting a high-traffic space. Paints come in a number of finishes, from flat to high-gloss. The general rule of thumb is the more matte the finish, the harder it is to clean. If a finish is glossy, it tends to be more "scrubbable."
After you‵ve finished sanding, make sure to prime your chairs. Many people choose to skip this step, but you shouldn‵t. Priming will ensure your chairs have a beautiful, clean finish. Once the primer is completely dry, you can begin painting your chairs. Remember to go with the grain of the wood and use consistent strokes with your paintbrush or roller. Let the paint dry in-between coats, and make sure to seal the chair with a layer of polyurethane. This final step will protect your chairs from inevitable kitchen spills and general wear and tear, and it will also give them a glossy, even finish.
Just like the title of the popular movie "Under the Tuscan Sun" suggests, the Tuscan kitchen relies on a neutral palette while mixing in sun-warmed tones of gold and yellow.
It‵s also important to purchase high-quality paint when painting your kitchen walls. By choosing a well-known paint, you´ll ensure the one you´ve chosen won`t peel or chip after a little wear and tear. If you`re not sure which paint brands are best, ask for help when you visit your hardware store, and a sales associate can give you detailed information.
