Level of difficulty


  • New wood



Step 1

Before painting, carefully prepare the surface by sanding it with 150-180 grit sandpaper. Be sure to remove any impurities with a dusting brush. The wood must be clean and dry.

Step 2

Now that your surface is ready, open your can of matt water-based enamel for wood (for this tutorial we used FNL01 - Pearl White), stirring it very well before use. Apply the product on the surface with a paint brush, working in long and linear movements.

Step 3

Wait 1 to 2 hours and apply the second coat of product, if necessary.
