Alright, friends. I’d like to have a little chat about painting furniture… I have seen tons of tutorials and projects on Pinterest and I’m deeply saddened to see the results! Don’t be fooled by those posts that say, “No sanding or priming required!” Sure, skip those steps if you want your furniture to look good for less than 10 minutes.
Here’s the gist: Whatever way you do it, it takes work to paint furniture. So if you’re going to put in the effort, make sure you do it the RIGHT way! No shortcuts!
The hubs and I have refinished lots of furniture over the past year and (after some trial & error) here are the steps we make sure to take each time so we get a good finish that lasts.
