Why sanding is important before painting
Sanding is an important step in preparing furniture for painting. It helps to create a smooth surface for the paint to adhere to and also removes any existing paint, which could be peeling or chipping. Sanding also helps to rough up the surface of the furniture, which will help the paint to stick better.
How to prepare your furniture for painting
Whether you want to give new life to an old piece of furniture or just change the color of something you already have, painting furniture is a great way to do it. The first step is always to prep the piece, which in this case means sanding. You don’t necessarily need to sand down to the bare wood, but you do need to roughen up the surface so the paint will adhere properly.
If you’re dealing with a large piece of furniture, like a dresser or a buffet, you can use an electric sander for this step. If you’re working on something smaller, or if you’d simply rather not deal with the mess and noise of an electric sander, you can sand by hand using sandpaper. Just be sure to use a variety of grits so you can start with a rougher paper and finish with a smoother one.
Once your piece is prepped and ready to go, all that’s left is to choose your paint!
How to choose the right paint for your project
Most projects will require a paint that can adhere to the surface without sanding first, but there are a few different types of paint that can be used depending on the project. Chalk paint, milk paint, and acrylic paint are all good choices for furniture painting projects, but each type of paint has its own unique properties that can make it better or worse suited for a particular project.
Some paints are also better than others at covering stains or dark colors, so it’s important to choose the right type of paint for your project. If you’re not sure which type of paint to use, ask a professional at your local hardware store for advice.

Tips for painting over lacquer
Although it is possible to paint over lacquer without sanding, it is not always the best option. If the lacquer is in good condition and you just want to change the color, sanding may not be necessary. However, if the finish is cracked, chipped or otherwise damaged, sanding will be necessary to create a smooth surface for painting.
If you do decide to paint over lacquer without sanding, be sure to use a primer designed for use on glossy surfaces. These primers will help to create a smooth surface and prevent the new paint from peeling or chipping.

Prepping your furniture for paint is probably the most important part of the entire painting process. If you don’t prep correctly, all your hard work could be for nothing because the paint will eventually peel or chip.

Tips for painting over bare wood
Whether you want to give new life to old furniture or just change the color on a piece that’s already been painted, there’s no need to sand down to bare wood before painting. In most cases, a little elbow grease and some paint prep will do the trick. Here are a few tips to help you achieve a smooth, professional-looking finish.
-Start with a clean surface. Remove any dirt, dust, or grease with a quick wipe down or rubbing alcohol.
-If the piece is bare wood, consider using a primer before painting. This will help to achieve even coverage and prevent the paint from soaking into the wood grain.
-If you’re painting over an existing paint job, make sure the surface is dry and free of any peeling paint or flaking varnish. Lightly sanding the surface will help to create a smooth surface for repainting.
-Use painter’s tape to protect any areas that you don’t want painted, such as hardware or glass parts.
-Apply paint evenly with a brush or roller designed for use with latex paint. For best results, use two thin coats of paint rather than one thick coat.
-Allow the paint to dry completely before removing painter’s tape and reattaching hardware.
How to troubleshoot common painting problems

3. The paint is not drying.
If your paint is not drying, it could be because the humidity is too high or because the paint is old. To fix this, turn on a fan or open a window to help dry the paint faster. If the problem persists, try using a different type of paint.
4. The paint is chipping.
If your paint is chipping, it could be because the surface was not properly prepared before painting or because the type of paint you used is not meant for use on furniture. To fix this, sand down the area that is chipping and repaint using a primer designed for use on furniture
