Painting melamine furniture is really not complicated. You only need 3 products, which can be found in the Colorantic online store, to do this. Here’s how to do it in just 3 easy steps.

Step 1 – Prepare the surface


Since melamine is a smooth surface, oil primer must be applied in order for the colour to hold well. To increase the adhesion of the primer to the melamine, it is best to clean the furniture well and lightly sand the surface. Then we put a coat of oil primer and voila!



Step 2 – Paint


Then we apply the chosen colour on our furniture, in this case it is Vintage Cream colour. For some colours one coat is sufficient. On the other hand, if you see that there are places where you can still see through the colour, apply a second coat when the first is dry. For large surfaces, such as this piece of furniture, you can use a roller to paint. It’s faster and gives a smooth finish.



Step 3 – The finish


Applying matte varnish is the last step in painting melamine furniture. It protects and seals the paint on the surface and, in addition, it allows us to run a damp cloth over the furniture to clean it. It is applied like paint with a brush or roller depending on the surface of the furniture or your preference.
