Step by step to recycle and paint a melamine furniture
Step 1: Remove and Clean.
What we have to do first is to disassemble the furniture as much as possible but without exaggerating 😉 . These are the doors and remove the drawers if it has ones. Clean well with water or alcohol. The objective is to eliminate any impurities that can have a negative effect on the adhesion for the next layer. Try not to leave any dirt, old adhesive or even dust on the surface.
Step 2. Design and cover:
In this step we are going to think a little about the design.The idea is to tape and cover areas that we do not want to paint.So if we are going to paint the furniture in different colors we will leave the area of the first color free.
Step 3. Apply the primer for plastic and melamine:
We could give a primer to all the furniture, but we are interested in the areas that go with the “virgin” melamine remain as is.If applied to the primer,even if it is transparent,it will slighty modify and we are interested in maintaining the original appearance.
Step 4. Paint with spray
Shake the boat and apply the first color.Better to give several layers thin and followed than one thick.You have to control the pick-up.Before drying completely remove the tape.At 15 minutes it will be dry.
Step 5. Repeat all the steps done until now:
We will repeat from step 2 as many times as we design colors for our melamine furniture.
Step 6. Assemble:
And this is the result
