cream colored bedroom furniture
hey there and welcome back to thissecond video today i'm going to show you how to paintthe tables that we prepped in our first video before you open your paint can, you want to shake it really well. turn it upside down and shake it for about a minute. then after opening it stir it well so thatall contents are mix well together i'm going to pour out some paint into thisplastic cup. you want to avoid painting straight outof the can as you may contaminate the
entire can of paint if you do that. i also wanted to show youhow to hold a brush properly. you don't want to hold it near the end, you wanna hold it right bythe base almost like a pencil grip, your thumb is on the back and your other fingers are on the front andby holding it like that that gives you a lot of control. the color that i'm go to be using as abase coat for this table is dark roast. this is a beautiful darkgrayish brown that this
almost black. as you can see i'mcovering about half way up the bristles. you want to makesure that you have a nice paint amount on your brush. but you also don't want to overdo it. ifyour brush is overloaded you'll start getting dripsand those aren't very pretty. i want you to keep in mind that theclimate you are working in has a huge influence on your final finish. you don't want to work in a temperaturethat is too hot as it will make the dry too quickly. you also want to avoid heating in high humidity
as that will mean your paint may not dryat all! it is best to work at room temperature and definitely not in direct sunlight.make sure the humidity isn't higher than eighty percent the temperature is around68 degrees or 20 degrees celsius. for our next table i'm going to useto color delightful, which i would describe as and nice robin's egg blue. we're going to open it up and stir it, and then i'm going to pour some
in a plastic cup. i grabbed myself a brush and and what i'm going to do first is paint the top first and when you're painting you always want to make sure your going in one direction on your piece. ifyou're going cross-wise, it meansyou'll get a lot texture in your finish, and maybe that is what you want.
but if you want it smooth, it is better to use long strokes. what i'm doing here, you can't really see probably, but there are ridges in here, and i just need to push topaint into. while you're painting, you want tomake sure that you don't continue to go over the parts that have already startedto dry. our paint dries very quickly, and you'llend up getting brushstrokes if you do so. by keeping a wet edge you'll make sureto get the smoothest finish.
oftentimes you'll find that you can cover a project with a single coat andit does depend a lot on the surface that you're painting and this table that i painted in delightful i can still see some of the wood comingthrough and i want this to cover really nicelyso what i'm going to do is i'm going to go ahead and give this piece a second coat. if you are working inwarm weather and you absolutely have to paint your project thatday, then you can add some extra water to your paint
which will increase the open timemeaning it will dry it less quickly. our paint has almost no odor and it issafe to use indoors, although i would suggest a littleventilation just in case. okay well that was it for this second video! thanks so muchagain for watching! i hope you're going to come back to ourthird video and in that video i'm going to show you how tolayer a different color over top of this base color and then i'm going to alsocover different distressing techniques so i hope to see you then!
