You need to Clean & Prepare Your
Furniture before you paint.
It is typically not the most fun part of the project, but it is important if you want to eliminate any headaches later in the process of painting your used furniture or cabinets. Over time, used furniture is going to acquire some dirt and some abuse.
So make sure it is ready to go before you open that jar of paint.
Yes! You can Salvage that Piece of Furniture, so Do not Trash it Just Yet!
I have been handed down plenty of pieces of furniture in the years. Or I just found some great finds while driving through my neighborhood. If you have been painting furniture for anytime you cannot beat a free piece of furniture to throw some paint on and make it new again.
Okay! You got a piece and you want to paint or refinish it to give it a face lift or a brand new coat of paint to make it look fresh.
But the Question, Do I really need to Sand It? Short Answer...No!!!!!!! Paint will cover anything up and give you a great new look, But.... Will your paint stick or adhere if I don't sand my piece first?
