Hi, I’ve recently been to quote a customer with a beautifully decorated house, for a few rooms, now she’s come back and asked how much to paint a double wardrobe, chest of drawers and two bedside cabinets in white.
I’ve said depending on the darkness of the wood, 2-3 days, as likely to be a four coat minimum.
In the meantime, I’d like to sort my spec out, as there’s a fair chance she’ll use me. If it was just me with what I have now, I would sand thoroughly with 240, tack rag and meths wipe. Two coats of Zinsser shellac based (as I could do two
Coats in one day) then Dulux Diamond Satinwood (with Floetrol) 2-3 coats on top, sanding with 240 in between. I have Axus lime rollers and Purdy Pro Extra and Monarch Elite brushes. I’m also minded to buy a fine mister to help with the tipping off.
I know this is rough, though I’d get acceptable results. But anything else I should be thinking of?
Tikkurila Feelings paint? Royal Langmickel tipping off brush? Finer sanding paper?
Also wondering whether a meths wipe would be enough to take off any silicone polish (and let’s assume it’s had some at some point)?
Really like to up my game a bit here, as this is the kind of customer that would want this, just a bit nervous about it.
Grateful for any advice offered.
