Topic tags/keywords: lacquer refinish funiture table dresser hvlp

I am now moved into the new house, and one of the things that happened is; I am out of money, so we use used furniture. I fix the broken pieces; I lightly re sand the dresser or table; I’ll find a stain close to the color of the unit; one or two coats of sanding sealer and a coat of high gloss lacquer. It is not perfect, but it looks good enough for my house. I am using an HVLP sprayer, so I can do a dresser in one evening. I will post pictures later.
Does anybody else have experience in doing refinishing without a complete strip down?

Ya it can be a real art. At the first wood shop I worked at they had a contract with a moving company to fix everything they messed up. Somehow I got the job. They had this kit of dies, powders, stains, colored lacquers, burn in lacquers, waxes, puddys, colored pens, ect…made by Mohawk finishes. We called it the wizard kit.

The whole kit was very expensive and you won’t need everything in it, but they do have some wonderful products that you can buy piecemeal.

Refinishing furniture is probably going to be in more demand with the current economic situation. Instead of buying a whole new room full of furniture, some people may elect to have their furniture re-done for a new look. Maybe they will have the furniture already, be given it by someone, or find it at a yard sale. A few repairs, a new stain, and some new finish and it will be good as new. I can just imagine all those people with painted furniture wanting to strip off the paint for either a new color, or the look of wood.

Hi, Bas. Just checking in on the Homefurbers. Bill and Dion are right. If you’re looking for something that will bring in some extra income, refinishing furniture is the thing to get into. If I had the time, I could do all that I wanted. And when I first went into business, I used to do a lot, to make ends meet. I still do a little chair caning, when I’m in between furniture orders.

Bill and Tim, I am refinishing just my own stuff. It is the furniture that looked great in the old house looks worn and old in the new house. And we picked some stuff at garage sales and from friends.

The nice thing is, it is a quick turn around; little repair, re stain, couple coats of lacquer and in 2 or 3 evenings we have an almost new dresser of dining table.

First of all, congratulations for having a new house incorporated with a few challenges. Anyway, it doesn’t matter if you don’t have any budget yet for your furniture. That’s a great strategy to make use of old furniture by reforming and rebuilding its over – all appearance. Creativity creates new things through available resources.

Now, regarding your question on refinishing! I think we should always keep in mind that refinishing takes time. If you expect a really desirable output, you have to have patience in following the complete procedures of refinishing old furniture. What you did is actually what I actually do. Sometimes I don’t prefer using sanding sealer to save time but it will minimize the quality of refinished furniture.

If you don’t like complete stripping of your furniture, just re – sand the part which only requires and just lightly apply the process to the rest of its parts. After that, you can readily apply coating of glossy lacquer and execute the painting through the use of spray paint rather than brush paints.
