I've finally started my furniture makeover that I had planned for January. There's nothing like waiting until the end of the month to do a monthly project. If I hadn't mentioned in my blog that I was going to paint these two pieces, it would still be on my list of things to do. Once I start a project though, I finish it.
I started by taking the seat off the chair and giving it a good sanding. The table I did not sand because I'm doing a test to see how well my primer adheres without sanding first. I used Zinsser Bullseye 1-2-3 Primer. It is supposed to work on glossy surfaces without sanding. An end table doesn't get as much abuse as a chair plus with all the detail it would not have been much fun to sand. I'm not lazy; this is a test. Just keep that in mind. I've used a deglosser before and don't like using products that require ventilation in the middle of winter.
The above photo shows the pieces with one coat of primer. Today I decided to add a second coat of primer and one coat of paint and will share that with you soon.
