    Confused Anyone painted furniture before?

    Advertisements
    Our dinning room table is just a run of the mill circle wood table with wood chairs we got second hand. The chairs are spray painted black but all the paint is peeling off. I want to fancy them up and paint the table and chairs just so we can keep them a few more years. I know the best option is to sand down the wood first, but will that work for the chairs too or do you think I need to strip the paint?

    Are the table and chairs solid wood or are they wood veneered?

    I've painted furniture. It was solid wood. I sanded it very well before painting and had no issues.

    If they're all real wood, sanding should work just fine.

    if you're going to spray paint it again, you don't even need to sand the paint all the way off. just scruff it up and it'll go fine i paint furniture over and over. too much
