A vintage End Table painted Blue Lagoon, I think lagoon Green!.
This project was so much fun and was easy to refinish. After cleaning, sanding and cleaning again, she was ready for primer than paint. Here are the tools and supplies I used. Be ware, there is always a lot of prep work before painting (especially furniture)!!!.
Make sure to clean your furniture piece thoroughly (I am so impatient) this step is really important before sanding, and priming. I like to sand my furniture first to lift the natural wood so that the primer can adhere to the wood. Two coats of primer should be good enough for this size, I like to make sure its covered, so I do three coats. Tip: sand in between priming for a smoother finish all the time. After your final coat of primer, let sit for 30 minutes...this is when I walk over to another project and start the process all over again. I usually have three projects going at once.
Now that the piece is dried (in great fl weather) apply an even coat of paint (Lagoon Blue) and sand in between coats and especially for the last coat. Once completely dried (overnight). I use Minwax finish paste, this hardens and protects the surface, this also adds a nice sheen.
