Crate And Barrel Dining Room Table. Once all the unwanted paint is removed from the dining table and chairs, lightly sanding the surface of the wood prepares the wood to receive the new paint to be applied. Select a higher quality paint brush than the one used with the paint remover. The higher the quality of paint brush the better the paint will go on the surface, with a minimal amount of streaking left by the brush. If there is any ornamentation on the table and chairs, purchase a smaller paint brush to be used on those areas. Paint with the grain to reduce brush streaking.
Crate And Barrel Dining Room Table. Check with hardware stores for different finishes or effects which can be replicated in the repainting process. If applying a second coat, make sure the first coat is completely dry before applying the second coat. For a distressed look to the dining table and chairs, lightly sanding after the paint is dry will give that affect.
