INSTRUCTIONS

NOTES: No primer or sealer is needed before painting or to protect the finish afterwards. Shake the Matte Metallic containers well before using the paint. Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Pour rubbing alcohol on a lint-free cloth and wipe away any dust and factory oils from the side table before painting.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Lightly sand all surfaces to be painted. Use a damp cloth to clean off all sanding dust.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Load the tip of a 2" paintbrush with Charcoal and, using long, continuous strokes, in the same direction, paint the bottom section of the side table. (To pant the inside of the punched metal case, use a foam brush. ) Allow 2-3 hours drying time and lightly sand between coats. Wipe with a damp cloth to remove sanding dust.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Before starting the top, protect the Charcoal painted area by taping it off with painter's tape.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Load the tip of the 1 1/2" paintbrush with Warm Copper and, using long, continuous strokes in the same direction, paint the top of the side table. Allow 2-3 hours dry time and finely sand between coats. Wipe with a damp cloth to remove sanding dust. (I used three light coats.)
    Step 4 Example
  6. Remove the painter's tape and allow to dry completely.
