Pine Tables: To Paint or Not to Paint?

Pine tables are incredibly versatile pieces of furniture that can fit into various settings and styles. Whether you prefer a rustic, traditional look or a modern, minimalist design, a pine table can be adapted to suit your taste. Not only can you buy a beautiful, handcrafted pine table from Ericssons Mattress & Pine, but you can also customise it to match your home’s décor with the right paint or stain.

Why Choose a Pine Table?

A pine table offers several benefits that make it a great addition to any home. Firstly, pine is a durable and sturdy wood, ideal for high-traffic areas like dining rooms and kitchens. Additionally, pine wood has a beautiful natural grain that can be highlighted with the right finish.

Preparing Your Pine Table for Painting or Staining

Before you begin painting or staining your pine table, proper preparation is key to achieving a professional finish. Here are the steps you should follow:

  1. Sanding

Start by sanding the surface of your table to remove any existing finish, if any, and create a smooth base for your paint or stain. After sanding, wipe the table with a damp cloth to remove any dust and debris.

  • Priming

If you plan to paint your wooden table, applying a primer is essential to ensure the paint adheres well and a smooth finish can be achieved. Allow the primer to dry completely before moving on to painting.

  • Painting Your Pine Table

Painting your pine table can transform it into a stunning focal point that complements your home’s décor. At Ericssons, you can find high-quality Chalk Paint and GripSeal Paint to achieve the look you desire.

Choosing the Right Paint

Chalk paint is a popular choice for pine furniture due to its matte finish and ease of use. It requires minimal preparation and can be applied directly to the wood surface. GripSeal paint, on the other hand, provides a more durable finish, making it ideal for tables that see a lot of use.

Painting Process

  1. Apply the Paint: Use a high-quality brush or roller to apply the paint in thin, even coats. Start with the tabletop and work your way down to the legs.
  2. Allow to Dry: Let the first coat of paint dry completely before applying a second coat. This typically takes a few hours but refer to the paint manufacturer’s instructions for specific drying times.
  3. Add a Second Coat: Apply a second coat of paint for a more solid and uniform finish. If necessary, apply a third coat for complete coverage.
  4. Seal the Surface: Once the paint is dry, apply a clear sealer to protect the finish. This is especially important for tables that will be used for dining or other activities.

Pine tables are versatile and can be customised to suit any home aesthetic. By following the proper preparation and paint application steps, you can transform your wooden table into a beautiful piece that enhances your home’s décor. Ericssons offers a wide range of pine tables and the necessary paints and stains to help you achieve the perfect look. Whether you visit one of our multiple stores or shop online, you will find everything you would need to make yours a stunning addition to your home.
