How to paint gold metal table legs?
Whether you’re giving new life to an old piece of furniture or giving a trendy gold finish to a more modern piece, painting metal table legs is a relatively easy process. To ensure the best results, follow these tips.
First, sand the surface of the metal legs. This will help the paint to adhere better. Use a medium-grit sandpaper and sand in the direction of the grain. Once you’ve sanded the legs, wipe them down with a damp cloth to remove any dust.
Next, apply a primer specifically designed for use on metal surfaces. This will help the paint to better adhere to the legs. Apply the primer with a paintbrush, making sure to cover the entire surface of the legs. Allow the primer to dry completely before moving on to the next step.
Once the primer is dry, it’s time to paint. Use a paintbrush to apply the paint evenly to the legs. Again, make sure to cover the entire surface. Allow the paint to dry completely before moving on to the next step.
Finally, apply a top coat of polyurethane to protect the paint job and give it a glossy finish. Apply the polyurethane with a paintbrush, making sure to cover the entire surface of the legs. Allow the polyurethane to dry completely before using the table.
