5921  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: How to paint old wood furniture? on: January 08, 2008 09:13:44 PM
Hi Jenn

First the nightstand:
Depending on what the current paint and surface condition is will decide what process you need to use.

The basic rule of thumb though whether the paint is flaking, dipped, rippled or perfect condition do as follows:

Give it just a quick surface sanding to give the new paint and primer finish something to grab (100 grit sandpaper) , prime and paint.

Use just a regular latex house paint, any brand will do. Make sure to coat well even if you need more than one coat. Choose a flat versus a high gloss so it will be more durable, unless you want to use high gloss. In that case you will need to seal with some kind of sealer like Polyurethane.

Second the wine rack:
Sand with 100 grit to also give grip to the new paint, prime then paint as with the nightstand.

Good luck, and I hope this all helps. Smiley

This caught my eye immediately on the front page. It is so gorgeous! If this is what you do with leftover paint you can have my paint, too.

The colors and technique is spot on!

Wow! This one is so tempting for me! I've really loved seeing everyone's pets. Smiley

I'll give it some more thought though.

C'mon! Ya know you wanna! All the cool kids are doing it! Cheesy

Sweets! You better join!

I love seeing everyone's babies. Lilly's ears are do die for! I love Zack's ears too. Sooo cute!

Just read the swap info for this, and I don't yet qualify. I'm just now signed up for my second swap. I'll catch it next round.

Think you get the better deal with the whole package since that is what you need. Most likely you can catch a sale this time of year, too.
