How to Paint Furniture: From Brown to Black
Here are 5 easy to follow steps on how to paint wood or laminate furniture.
Step 1 : Lightly sand you piece and clean with vinegar+ water combo
Step 2: Time to prime your piece. I use 400xim for 2 reasons 1. it has amazing bond and 2. it bonds to anything (plastic and/or wood) so no need to go crazy when it comes to sanding.
Let the primer dry overnight.
Step 3. Paint your piece with a good quality paint brush and roller . I used BM paint in a pearl finish. Let dry overnight. I did 2 coats , sanding in between each coat.
Step 4 : Seal Painted Furniture with Water based Wipe On Poly
Another piece I painted at the same time :)
Step 5: voila! done.
