1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Painting flat pack furniture? on: January 09, 2008 10:05:06 PM
I've got this large old flat pack computer desk that's functional but ugly. It's MDF with a woodgrain paper glued rather weakly to it. It actually peels off in strips in the more frequently used areas (keyboard tray, etc.) I've never painted anything but new unstained furniture before, so I have a couple of questions:

1. How should I go about removing the woodgrain paper? I would prefer not to use too many chemicals if it all possible because I live in a basement apartment without too much ventilation.

2. What type of brush would be best to keep visible brushtrokes to a minimum?

Thanks in advance.  Cheesy
