Painting Furniture

Painted furniture can be quite charming, but if you aren't sure how to tackle the project, these tips should help you out.

Remove any handles or pulls and put them aside.

Put a plastic tarp or some waxed paper under the legs; that way when the paint dries, it won't stick to your work surface.

If the piece has been painted before and you aren't sure when, you don't want to sand it down because older paints can contain lead. Use a putty knife and some wood filler to even out any nicks and gouges.

Then prime the piece with a de-glossing primer. This will give you a flat surface to work on that paint will adhere to easily.

If you want a glossy finish, use an enamel paint; for a softer finish, use latex.

Brush the paint on in long, even strokes using either a good brush or a sponge applicator. The sponges work great on edges and trim because they easily conform to the shape you need. Put on two coats of paint for the best coverage.
