The Benefits Of Reapplying Finish

A good finish protects and brings out the natural beauty of the wood and work that went into the surface. When your nice wood pieces look old and weathered, refinishing them can bring them back to life. Sanding down and reapply a new finish or lacquer brings out the natural color that became dried and dull over the years

Why You Should Consider Reapplying Finish

Taking an old wood piece and reapplying a new finish brings the piece back to life and creates a great deal of visual depth to your furniture and home. When you give your antiques or family heirlooms a second lease at life, you’re not only preserving history, but also keeping part of your heritage alive.

The difference between applying the finish with spray vs. paintbrush.

Reapplying Finish
Finish that is applied by spraying is a quick and easy technique Spray finish will protect the surface but often is not as tough as a finish applied by a brush. Recessed areas that are hard to reach and a surface that is cylindrical alI shape. These can be difficult to brush a finish on and not achieve runs, so a spray on the finish is ideal in these cases. You can achieve a thicker, more protective coating by brushing than by spraying. That is not to say that a spray finish doesn’t look as good or have its merits. It can often be the best choice in your finishing techniques.
