? about using Kilz on table?

n2bach1September 14, 2007

I have a small table that I tried to strip and refinish a long time ago! I got part of it done and realized it wasn't worth doing because I didn't really know how to do it very well and it was a mess! Anyway, the top, flat part of the table is what's stripped down to wood, but the legs of it are still painted red. If I paint Kilz over all of it and then paint the whole thing a solid color, will it match? Or will you see a difference in color between the stripped/painted parts?

Just want to know what I'm getting into before I spend the money to do it! It's kind of a unique, cute little table and it just might look good painted!

Thanks for your help. I really appreciate it.

Kilz will give you a uniform base PROVIDED you put it on evenly.....meaning you have to do a good job covering it just like you would with regular paint. You can't just open can and slap it on and hope for it to look good. Stir your paint well if you have problems stirring buy one of those attachments for a drill, it makes stirring paint EASY!
Also lightly sand those legs and then run a tack cloth over them to clean off the residue from the sanding. It will make the primer and the paint stick better.
