I did some research on Craftster but am not having much success with my project. Perhaps you can advise?
I have this table (in birch veneer, not in the light blue that pops up first):
I want to print it with an artsy design. I tried some craft paint on one leg, and it scratched off easily. I tried sanding, and it made little difference. I tried a couple coats of primer, and it still scratches off with just a firm scrape of the fingernail.
Do I need to get a hardwood table in order to paint and have it stay on? I am thinking of shopping the local thrift stores for one, but I don't want to give up on this IKEA table unless it really is a lost cause.
If you know anything about how to accomplish this, please let me know!!
