Painting furniture tips

Staging redesign and furniture painting

The process of painting new furniture includes sanding or stripping, priming and painting. A second coat of paint rewards you with a better looking, smooth and lasting finish. Painting wood furniture is an exiting and easy diy project that helps make your old or second hand furniture look unique and stylish.

You need to pull out the dresser or chest drawers, remove old paint or varnish (if you work with old or second hand furniture pieces,) and sand to prepare wood furniture surfaces for a new paint. Before painting, apply the primer which is also a sealer. It will seal stains on dressers or chest drawers, preventing bleeding through the fresh paint coat.
