Is there an old piece of furniture in your house that is crying out for a new paint job? Are you willing to give it the love it needs, but you just don’t know how to go about painting furniture? If this describes you, then you’re in luck because Carrie from thirtyeighthstreet has compiled a tutorial that is designed to take you step-by-step through the process.
The supply list Carrie provides is complete with readily available materials. Carrie explains the first step of removing the hardware and cleaning the wood, and this is followed by repairing holes or gouges in the wood. Sanding and priming the piece is the next step, and Carrie’s instructions are clear and easy to understand. Finally, a chalk based paint is selected and applied with a brush, which leaves very few marks on the surface.
Carrie gives a detailed outline of the process of painting with clear explanations of why certain steps are taken.
