Here’s a step by step of what I do for prepping and painting a DIY furniture paint project.
- If the surface needs roughing up I use Liquid sandpaper to do the job (so much easier than sanding, here is a link but you can buy it at any home improvement store).
- I paint the whole thing with my tiny roller (picture shown above, I got mine at home depot here is a similar one on Amazon but I can’t see it super close up so I don’t know if they are exactly the same, they are the same size and look very similar, but I know you can find the one in the picture, that I used, at Home Depot).
- As I am painting if I cant reach a corner or tight spot with the roller (I seriously can paint 97% of everything I paint with the roller) I use a foam brush like this.
- If needed I add a second coat… and I am finished. The best and easiest way to paint a DIY project.
