1. Tools of the trade
- Fine sandpaper
- Dulux white primer
- White Knight white gloss paint
- Flat angled paint brush
2. Sand the varnish back lightly
I'm sure I didn't get all the varnish off because there is so much detail on the frame but I did the best I could! I cleaned off the dust afterwards using the wet sponge.
3. Mask the fabric
4. One coat of primer
This took me 2 hours to do because of all the detail in the woodwork. I was also careful to get into all holes and detail to cover as much as possible. I left the primer to dry overnight.
5. Two coats of glossy white paint
The first coat took me a bit over an hour. It was hard getting down low with my pregnant belly in the way. The second coat took me half and hour because my sister helped me. I waited for the paint to dry overnight between coats.
6. Peel off the tape and VOILA! All done.
See? Told you it was easy.
