How do I prevent bubbling when spray painting a piece of furniture?
I purchased an older French Provincial dresser to flip as a bathroom vanity which would provide for additional storage. I sanded the dresser and drawers well, but at times when adding additional coats of Rustoleum 2X paint, it would bubble. I would have to let dry, scrape, re-sand, re-paint, sometimes with success, others not. I would let dry thoroughly (a week at a time) before applying the next coat. It didn't happen in the same spot each time. Some of the spots will be covered by a repurposed vanity top, but not all of it. Can anyone tell me what I might be doing wrong? Any suggestions to make it easier if I attempt this again? Thanks in advance.

I cannot be sure, but you might be applying the spray paint too thick. It could also be the temperature you are painting in. Here are some good tips.
There could be some kind of grease stain or wax or sealer still remaining that is causing the paint to bubble. Also be sure to keep the can at a distance and spray in several light coats.
Thank you for the two responses....I thought I was following most of them but not all as provided in the link. I still have the drawers to paint so I'll follow the directions and hopefully work it out.
I agree with Becky! Several light coats and let fully dry. At least 8" to 10" from the surface.
are you stirring too hard/ that will cause bubbles, make sure your brush is clean and dry, also you might need a primer
