Do I Need to Use A Primer Before Applying Furniture Paint?

Adhesion primers do exactly what you think they do by simply adding a bonding layer between the substrate you’re painting and your paint to improve overall adhesion. Although some of our furniture paints do not require a primer, using a primer is really important when painting surfaces which are particularly difficult to bond to or in applications with high demands.

Furniture Paint Primers

Some of our favourite furniture primers include:

Zinsser B-I-N

A shellac based product, Zinsser B-I-N delivers an unmatched ability to adhere to glossy surfaces making it an absolute favourite when painting furniture. With no need to sand your surface first and drying incredibly quickly, Zinsser B-I-N is recoatable in just 45 minutes.

Otex Akva

Another popular primer, the Otex Akva is a quick drying, water-based primer with excellent adhesion. Ideal for use on interior surfaces (including gloss) the Otex products are tintable so you can match them to the same shade as your top coat which is a great added bonus.

How Many Coats Of Furniture Paint Should I Apply?

Knowing how many coats to apply can have a lot to do with the type of surface you are painting and colour you are painting with. In most cases, generally 2-3 coats of furniture paint is just about right.
