In Part 1 of this blog, I showed you how Sanding, Priming, & Prep Work are necessary when taking on a project like painting an old dresser. Now, in Part 2, I continue where we left off: the priming. If you buy paint with primer already in it, you don’t need to prime.
Without sanding, priming & prep work, chances are the finished product isn’t going to be very good…no matter how much paint you layer on. Case in point: This antique dresser that was purchased on Craigslist for $35. Why was it so cheap? Because it was a mess. Someone else had already tried to paint it, and I inherited their shoddy work. But a lot can be learned from it, so I’m going to use it to show you why sanding, priming and prep work are so important.
An old, beat up dresser gets a major makeover in this furniture flip. This video tutorial will show you how it was done, and give you an idea of what you can expect to spend in both time and money to take on a similar project.
