Varnish/Painting on old HDB door and old furniture

Recommended Posts

Hi all:

I decide to give my 3 bedroom door a new look. I decide to do it myself. I am second owner and I don't know what is the existing door surface finishing. Is it varnish or some kind of paint? I want to maintain the nature wood grain and better a light/clear color. below is 2 photo of my bedroom door. Anyone know is that varnish or not? I found the Nippon Timberlac clear color. is it can be use on my door? Do I need to use a sand paper to remove all the existing surface before apply? Then it is a lot of work.

Below is the photo of my wood furniture. Can I do the same with Nippon Timberlac Clear? Or what kind of paint or varnish you recommend?

Any other better way? I heard there is some kind of wax or oil things. I have google it but still have no idea what it is.

I have use the Nippon Bodelac 9000 white on my main gate door. Looks pretty ok. But for bedroom door and some furniture i want to maintain the nature wood grain and lighter color.

Process better to simple not so difficult. Any good recommendation?

There are 2 options of mantaining your nature wood grainon your exisitng door. 

No 1, option is either doing some patching due to dented and sanding away old stains before revanishing with lacquer.

No 2, option would be changing your bedroom door surface to either laminate or veneer depending on your choice. You can choose from various design and color and giving you a new look.

This type of solid timber door you hardly find now in Spore. It's better for you to preserve it and it can last till your next generation. Need to do some timber patty on dented parts and do some sanding be4 applying Mahogany tapin base lacquer to vanish.
