Hey I've asked this question before but was more worried about color and look than the details. I was all set to start my projects, went to the store and got overwhelmed by the paint selection; then the inner voice "you can't make your furniture look like that" "you have no idea what your doing" on top of 2 girls asking 20 questions. So I left and didn't look at any furniture Blog posts for a few days. But the itch came back. Okay so i need it broken down as dumb as possible. 1. Which paint for a small bathroom vanity? Primer? Sealer? Can I use wall paint? I'm going to paint it navy so if you have any favorites that would be amazing. 2. Laminate shelf- Paint? Primer? Sealer? Process?3. A shelf that I dont think is wood not laminate. Maybe MDF? It has woodgrain. I want to try dry brushing to make the black show through light gray paint. I want to make it look like the clock hands(picture below) Paint? Primer? Sealer? Process?4. Nightstand. Doesn't have the drawer so I was going to unscrew the middle part and leave it open. Any suggestions? -paint? Primer? Sealer? Process?How is Dixie Belle paint? Should I use chalk paint? Mineral paint? Do I use wax? Again first time furniture repurposing enthusiast here. No idea what I'm doing but it sparks a fire in my soul. I need some furniture therapy here. I'm attaching the pictures in the order I wrote about them. Also roughly how much paint for each peice? O and thoughts on spray paint please. Thank you in advance for reading this novel and helping.
