Please Advise - Coating/Painting Metal furniture

Posted by a1129m (My Page) on

I have metal coffee table and end table set that has dull green background color and gold/brown pattern.

I wish to “darken” the shade of my furniture. I don’t want to repaint the furniture ….. Is there a way I can use something like “translucent coating” (varnish or protective coat) to darken the shade as well as maintain shine on the furniture.

Hi there! Nice to meet you! :)

For best results, you will have to put on a primer or rust sealer prior to painting. This is available in a spray paint type of can, thus remember to coat in an open spot and make sure you will not spoil the floor while painting. Spray the primer or sealer smoothly over the all round the exterior of the furniture with even strokes. Leave the primer to dry up.
