How do you paint an old wood dresser?

  1. Step 1: Prep, prep, prep! First, prep your piece of furniture.
  2. Step 2: Sand. Next, sand your furniture and get all of the glossy finish off so that the paint will have a good surface to “grab” onto.
  3. Step 3: Prime. After your furniture is dry and dust-free, paint on some primer.
  4. Step 4: Sand Again.
  5. Step 5: Paint.

Accordingly, what kind of paint do you use on a dresser?

For furniture it’s best to use a satin or semigloss finish in either a latex or an oil-based paint. Never leave primer unpainted. If you choose a latex paint, a latex primer is an excellent choice for most uses. It goes on easily and blocks most stains, but it doesn’t have the odor of an oil-based primer.

Beside above, will a quart of paint cover a dresser? One quart can cover a bed, a dresser and four chairs. And one gallon is enough to paint the average sized kitchen. Usually you only need one coat of Old Village Paint, even with dark colors.

In this regard, can you paint a dresser without sanding?

USE A LIQUID SANDER/DEGLOSSERLiquid sand paper/deglosser is probably the least known method to avoid sanding furniture. The liquid is applied to the surface. Then a chemical reaction occurs and grips onto the new paint you apply. It does smell, so it’s best used in a well ventilated area.

Is it better to spray or brush paint furniture?

Spray painting is faster than brush painting. Most spray paint is oil-based and provides a more durable finish than latex paint. Spray paint can be used on practically any surface, including wood, metal, wicker, plastic and resin.
