How To Paint Anything
Tips, suggestions, and plain old-fashioned good advice for painting furniture to exteriors.
Old Furniture Made New
In these lean times, everyone is trying to save money. But you don’t have to sacrifice style! Paint your furniture, and start over with a flourish -- and with money saved in your pocket.
Step 1: Repair any defects with wood filler. Painted or varnished furniture will need to be lightly sanded (with the grain), cleaned, and primed with the appropriate primer.
Step 2: If the furniture has a wax surface, you’ll want to completely strip it so that no residue remains when you start repainting it. Remember oil and water-based paint can be applied over oil-based primers: the reverse is not true.
