What do furniture painting services include?

Furniture painters can help you achieve the look that you want–from traditional to contemporary–using your preferred paint colour and appropriate painting techniques.

It's wise to assemble all your furniture pieces first for a more smooth-sailing furniture painting service. In case something needs repairing, you can also get someone to help fix your furniture to ensure that everything's good to go prior to painting your items. If you're looking for reliable furniture painting near you, here's what we can help you with:

Spray paint furniture service

Furniture spray painting services near you provide a lovely satin finish to your pieces without taking too much of your time. You can use it for various surfaces and materials like wood, wicker, metal, and plastic, as well as doors, chairs, side tables, and any furniture with small accents and tricky nooks and crannies. It's best to spray paint furniture outdoors or in a well-ventilated area to manage the paint fumes better and lessen the curing time as well.

Furniture spray painters near you can clean and sand it first, and also apply a coat of primer to make the paint last longer. Then, they can proceed with spray painting your furniture in your preferred shade and finish. If you want a fuller and more pigmented colour, your painter may need to wait for a few hours for the first application to dry before doing a second coat. Make sure to let the paint cure overnight before moving or using your furniture to avoid paint chips and cracks.

Furniture brush painting

If you're aiming for a more classic or traditional look for your furniture, brush or hand painting is a great option. This painting technique works best on wood furniture as it allows the unique grain pattern of the material to come through the paint. You can choose from all sorts of furniture paint, including latex, chalk, acrylic, milk, and oil-based paint. 

Brush painting assures better adhesion, so applying 2-3 coats is ideal for uniform coverage. If you want to take your interiors up a notch, you can even hire a professional interior designer to help you come up with fabulous ideas for a vintage-themed space!

Furniture faux painting

Also known as faux finishing, faux painting adds texture and dimension to your home and furniture. This particular technique involves decorating your pieces by replicating the look of an entirely different material, like fabric, wood, suede, or granite. Some of the most popular faux painted furniture items are dining tables and kitchen cabinets, so if you're planning a major kitchen makeover, this can be your best bet!

Faux painting is also ideal for larger custom-made furniture like cabinets, wardrobes, bathroom vanities, and bookcases. The design possibilities are endless, so feel free to be as creative as you want and let your painter know about the finish you want to achieve!

Furniture painter required


Collingwood VIC, Australia

20th Sep 2022

Hi there! We're looking for someone to please come and paint some furniture on site in Collingwood on Tuesday the 27th of September. Not entirely sure how painting furniture works, but there will be the following items that require painting (also pictured): 2 x Dining tables - 2 metre by 1 metre each 2 x Mid-sized industrial bookshelves 2 x Low cabinets All items are to be painted in entirety, so the metal bits and wood veneer bits will be painted - unsure exactly on total colours at this stage but definitely each piece will be just one colour. Is paint something we provide on the day or do we need to let you know about colours well in advance? All the furniture will be on the ground floor of a warehouse and we'd prefer them not to be taken off site if possible. All drop sheets, equipment etc will need to be provided by yourself. We will have power but not much else. Please reach out with any questions! Cheers, Allie - Due date: Needs to be done on Tuesday, 27 September 2022
