Painting furniture can be one of the quickest & easiest ways to transform your furniture.  Here couple of quick tips if you are going to tackle the project of transforming your furniture with some paint:

– Prepping your furniture is the most important thing to do – make sure you clean your furniture with a good cleaner

– Scuff sand your furniture completely prior to paint (so the paint can adhere to it) with a 120 – 180 grit sandpaper

– Put a good Primer coat on your furniture first

– Don’t be cheap with your paint!  Go with a good quality paint like Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams.

– For the best results place 2 coats (minimum) of a clear coat finish (like a urethane) to give added durability
