Same as any wood. Wash down with TSP, sand off sheen, prime with oil based primer, lightly sand again and paint with oil based paint.
Kelli's directions are great - just make sure you don't sand too much. Veneer is very thin so make sure you LIGHTLY sand your table. Wishing you the best.
Hi, I've painted table tops with Dixie Belle and and it has adhered great. I also sealed with a water based poly for a durable finish. :)
