Helpful hints

Projects can be as quick and easy or as intricate and creative as you want them to be. Depending on the furniture piece, you might consider one-color projects or decorative techniques, such as sponging, ragging or painting color blocks.When you use vintage pieces, make sure they are in good repair. If the piece previously has been painted, you can sand and repaint in most cases without stripping off old paint.In general, furniture requires sanding, wiping with tack cloths or clean damp cloths to remove dust, and priming to seal the finish.For some pieces, though, it's good-looking to incorporate the charm of the natural wood or previously stained wood for variations of an aged or antiqued effect.For best results, paint in thin coats and never rush drying times.
