Painting Your Tuscan Furniture
Tuscany is always mistaken by public to be French for some reason rather it is Italian. As the theme of Tuscan means furniture and its very uniquely and clearly Italian. The basic or primary material for the Tuscan furniture is wood and others like chestnut, cypress, fir and poplar being general choices. Older pieces that have been around for awhile may need painting to energize them with new life. Apply a paint primer prior to painting to help the paint better adhere to your furniture. Select a latex paint that’s recommended for furniture and use two or three coats to completely cover the pieces. Stain the furniture to reveal the natural beauty of the wood grain. Apply a sanding sealer prior to staining to produce a more uniform appearance. Use a medium-grit sandpaper to sand the edges, corners and raised panel areas to achieve the rustic, weathered look found in Tuscan furniture.
Furniture in the original Tuscan style was often left unpainted. Modern times have changed the look; stain or paint is now the preferred finish. Tuscan furniture is typically stained in a variety of earthy browns and blacks to give a neutral appearance. Paint colors are more vivid, inspired by the Tuscan countryside. Golden honeys, warm grays, terra-cotta reds, sky blues, grassy greens and milky whites are color options for painting your furniture.
