Question from Alison
"Hello, how can we repaint furniture made of melamine particle board and give it a resistant and shiny effect? Thank you."
Answer: sand, undercoat and repaint your furniture with a satin paint and a gloss varnish
Hello Alison, you would like advice on repainting furniture with melamine particle boards and giving them a shiny effect. At first, Alison, you will need to lightly sand your furniture with a fine sandpaper and then dust it with a damp cloth or sponge. The second step will be to under coat them with a specific melamine product that you will find at some specialists. Respect the drying time for maximum adhesion. You can then repaint your furniture with the paint of your choice. You can either start directly on a glossy paint, or go to a satin paint, easier to work with. Finally, you will apply a shiny varnish that will protect your furniture while giving it the shine and reflection you want. You too, send us your decoration question
