You will need
  • - varnish or paint;

  • - stain;
  • - brush and roller.
Prepare the furniture to the paint work. Remove any elements which could get the paint. If they cannot remove, cover them in cellophane (like food).
Remove the old coating by using abrasive cloth with a fine spray. If the paint layer is thick enough, then use coarse sandpaper. The procedure is quite long and troublesome, but using the grinder to facilitate labor is not necessary. It will damage the veneer, as for the high revs can cause depressions in the material.
If sometimes there are burrs or gouges, then primed them, then level the wood putty. Wait until it fully dries, then lightly sand with sandpaper.
Stir the stain and apply two coats until the color is smooth and rich. If you use latex or enamel paint, to give a tint is not necessary.
If you decide to stain the veneer of paint, apply it in several layers. With the varnish a bit more complicated. Apply the first coat, let it dry. If some places stick out "splinters", remove them with sandpaper.
Cover the veneer with a second layer of varnish with a roller – so the coating is smooth. Be careful to avoid drips, wipe them will be very difficult. This would be a good prokatyvaja cushion in a special tray.
Ensure that in the process of drying of the coating to keep dust and other impurities, otherwise, you have to come all the way staining of veneer from the start.
In about 1-2 days screw all the removed elements. Doing it early is undesirable, as the varnish dries for 48 hours.
