Let's Get Started

To reduce the risk of injury user must read instruction manuals for all tools used in this project. Wear eye and respiratory protection. Use clamps to support work piece whenever practical.

STEP 1

Step 1

Scrape off existing paint on larger, flat surfaces using a Dremel Multi-Max tool and the MM600 Rigid Scraper Blade. Tip: Always be sure to wear eye protection and a dust mask during rust and paint removal applications.

STEP 2

Step 2

Grind off rust and paint in smaller, detailed sections using any Dremel Rotary tool and a rotary grinding accessory. Here we used the 8220 tool with the 952 Aluminum Oxide Grinding Stone. Depending on how ornate the furniture is, you may want to consider a 538 Abrasive Brush run at a speed below 20,000 RPM.

STEP 3

Step 3

Sand the surface as a final step before painting. Use the Dremel Multi-Max and MM70P sanding paper for larger, flat surfaces. Use a Dremel Rotary tool with a Sanding Drum or Abrasive Buff run at a low speed for hard-to-reach areas of your furniture.

STEP 4

Step 4

Prime and paint your furniture with rust-resistant paint to make your new look last.
