    You can scuff with fine steel wool, wipe down with denatured alcohol, then spray paint.

  • Hi, Vickie!

    Spray painting is probably the best option... RustOleum is the best brand to use, in my opinion, and comes in a wide variety of colors. I hope this helps!

    So a laminate? You can do a faux wood finish using a graining tool.

    You don't need to use spray paint. You'd end up using a ton of it. Just scuff the surface with a green kitchen scrubby to remove any shine. Wipe down with a damp cloth. Prime with Kilz primer then paint. Seal with three coats of a water based polyurethane to protect the finish. That is what i do.

    Thanks for all you suggestions! I don't know what type of wood this table is made. I think it is press board. It absorbs water terribly.
