  • Chalk paint and Fusion Mineral paints are great. Just a light sanding and wiping and you are good to go. If you use other paints (like Latex) you will most likely have to sand and prime for good adhesion.

    Lightly sand to remove any gloss and roughen the surface for paint. Prime with a stain blocking primer like Zinsser 123. Then paint with your color. You can use acrylic latex paint. Seal with at least three coats with a water based polyurethane. Use a small foam roller and foam brush for a smooth finish.
