Tips for painting furniture
Make sure you clean the surface well with a natural cleaner. (dust and dirt can make the paint lift).
Give it a light scuff if the surface is super shiny. (this will ensure a great finish)
Fix any scratches or holes before hand with wood epoxy. (sand off excess)
Pick a brush that is soft and sheds very few hairs. (invest in a good brush, it is worth it)
Milk paint can be thinned for a stain or thickened for paint.
Take the time to mix any paint well.
