How to Touch Up a Resin Chiavari Chair

Gold Chiavari ChairWhile our resin Chiavari chairs are more durable than wood Chiavari chairs, they will still scratch with use over your years of ownership. With some trial and error we have developed a technique that yields great results when touching up your NES Reliable Resin Chiavari Chairs. Here are some easy to follow, step by step instructions that you can follow when doing your touch ups to help keep your chairs in the best condition possible.

Tools and Supplies:

  • Small Area Sanding Sponge, 120 Grit
  • Tack Cloth
  • Spray Paint
  • Cardboard or Drop Cloth

*please follow all instructions on spray paint and only paint in an open well-ventilated area*

Step 1:

Set up your cardboard or drop cloth in a well-ventilated area. Remember you are using spray paint so consider the direction that you are spraying. For example, if you are planning to do this outside, keep in mind the direction of the wind.

Step 2:

Use the small area sanding sponge to lightly sand the scratches. You are not looking to get rid of all the paint, you are just looking to knock down any sharp edges or ridges that may have been created from the scratch.

Step 3:

Wipe the area you are going to paint with a tack cloth to remove any dust that may have been left from sanding. This will give you a cleaner work surface to apply the paint to, helping to reduce the chance of having an uneven paint coat.

Step 4:

Be sure to shake your spray paint well before using. If the spray paint has been used before, be sure to clean the spray nozzle prior to painting to prevent uneven spray. Follow the application instructions on the spray paint can, generally this means just a few light coats 1-2 minutes apart. Let dry for 24 hours and reapply if required.
