DIY: How To Repaint Old Furniture
Make a hand-me-down piece look new with a fresh coat of paint
Does your foyer look too tita? Don't be afraid to inject your personality into the area. Make it brighter and more welcoming by giving your old console and mirror a new coat of paint and adding a fun pattern. Here's how:
- 1 can lacquer spray paint
- 1 can red spray paint
- 1 fine paintbrush
- Masking tape
1. Sand over the wooden surfaces of the console and mirror, then wipe with a rag.
2. Spray with paint primer. When dry, spray paint with lacquer finish and let dry.
3. Block off a Union Jack or a stripe pattern on top of the console using masking tape, then spray paint the pattern with a bold color like red. Let dry.
