Furniture Restoration Tutorial Episode 4: Weathering Furniture

Thank you for joining us on another episode of furniture restoration tutorials by restoration plantation.com. Taking your quality furniture and giving it anew charming look

Ok welcome my name is Brent Hollenberg with restorationplantaiton.com

And today we are talking about weathering a piece of furniture

Also going to give you some great trips and tricks on weathering furniture, and how it is done

In today first tutorial we are giving you some tips on furniture restoration tips and secret tip at the end of this.

So here we go into our future segment, lets start out on the tips to weathering furniture, now after you paint your piece of furniture, if its white, lets say maybe a white night stand for example which I will have a before and after picture on my website

If you use a white bright white piece of furniture and you want it to be lightly weathered, you probably want to use a finer grit sand paper. This way you won’t see the distressing marks, if you use 60 grit you could go all the way through the actual wood if that is the style your going for. I do pieces from very weathered to slightly weathered to pretty much just looks like it gives the paint a littler darker sheens to it, or a more patina look.

Weathered Furniture started out as people leaving furniture outside in a high and cold climate for extended periods of time. They started seeing what they would like inside after the style started to evolve. So you can transform a ugly piece not a great looking piece, funny how times are changing and style is always going crazy with new idea’s, love it.

I acquired from a very old weathered sideboard from my friend Anita from Sedona, AZ with things with springs and it from the 1940’s. Its very beet up and need some good work. IF you look on my website at www.restorationplantation.com I will be posting some great pictures of it on there, and then in about a month or so the after pictures so check back there. If you go to the naked furniture tab which is just furniture needing to be restored. I will have a picture posted there as well for you to take a look at.

Ok, so lets talk now about paint selection and how important it is when your going to weather a piece of furniture. Like a stated in the beginning you do a white paint color and do a dark stain over it, the piece will be coming out like the base color is almost a brown color. Don’t use a really light color and then a really dark stain because it will look very different from what you or your customer was looking for and might even have to start the process over.. I use minwax.com products and tons of great colors and stains and range about $10 for a quart of this stain. You can get Minwax pretty much anywhere they sell tools, Wal-Mart is good for international because they are in many countries.

You have the option to purchase a pint but for a few more dollars you and get 4 times the amount for around $4 more, make the investment and it will last long time.

Min wax are very good stain to use when weathering furniture, they have a great selection form light stains to dark stains depending on what your looking the finished product to be. So lets say you have a light green table and you just want to give it a little weathered look. I would give it a light colored stain and then you can also just apply more if need be, you go to dark then you have more work ahead of you.

When you weather with stain it really brings out the flower carving on pieces and detailed wood work and is a great way to make that piece pop on the piece and adds even a bit more detail.

So sandpaper selection, if you want a really deep penetration with your sand paper they range in grit per square inch and range from 26 great which would be very coarse and abrasive, all the way up to 5000 grit sand paper, the bigger the number the finer the sane paper is. Example, 220 grit would be a great sand paper for a lightly distressed look and you don’t want the natural wood to show throughput maybe just what underneath the other layer. If you really want it to show through then chose a more abrasive grit ranging from 60-150. (Remember, lower the grit more abrasive, higher the grit the finer).

When your weathering your piece of furniture make sure you test a small area and then you can see what the results are and make sure you want to wipe off the stain so its just stained a bit not the whole solid color you are using to stain, the longer it sets in the color or wood the harder it is to remove, test a sample after 1 minute the again at 3 and see the difference.

After you stain and weather the furniture you want to make sure you let the stain cure for about 24-48 hours for the stain to set in. Then you wan to finish the pieces with a product that will help protect and make the piece durable for years to come. I like to use polyurethane because it has the hardest finish out of all the finished you can purchase. If your going safe for children’s furniture’s you can purchase water based polycyclic for safe finishes as well. (Water based can substitute for those of you that are DIY and can spray this in your garage paint booth or even in a well ventilated area and easy for cleanup just with soap and water. I recommend 2-3 coats of a finishing product for extra quality.

If you are doing a piece for yourself and using this information, once you have the finished piece in your home there is just a much better feeling in the home that you do that piece and just didn’t have it delivered form a chain store that is mass producing them. You have a one of kind masterpiece you created, great story to tell and they become great conversation pieces.

Dark walnut stains make sure and read the information above to make sure you dong the procedures correctly.
