3 Basic Steps for Repainting Wood Furniture

  1. Sanding: Use a coarse grain sand paper to begin the sanding process. You will need to make sure you remove all the old paint from the surface of the piece of  furniture you wish to refinish.
  2. Priming:  Use a coat of primer to paint the furniture after you have finished sanding. After the paint has dried you should use a fine grain sand paper before adding the final coat of paint.
  3. Painting:  There are several options of how to apply the final coat of paint. If you are looking for a smooth or high-gloss finish, spray paint is the way to go. For a more rustic finish use a brush and add brush strokes as a part of the texture of the newly painted piece of furniture.
